When outlaws on the lam invade the home of an unsuspecting, seemingly innocent, frontier family to hide out for the night, an unexpected game of cat and mouse ensues, leading to seduction, role reversal, and ultimately, bloody revenge.
After a bloody bank robbery in New Mexico, Henry's gang heads to the borders for a safe split of the loot, while a competent bounty hunter, Josiah, is after them. Soon, the bandits will find the perfect hideout to spend the night, unfortunately, however, there lives the family of pastor George Tildon, a religious man who lives by the word of God. Inevitably, this is going to be one very long night, and as the tension keeps boiling over, no secret will remain hidden under the light of the morning sun.Written by
The highway men masks worn in the film were inspired by the mask worn by outlaw and highway robber William "Brazen Bill" Brazelton. After he was killed by a five-man posse, Brazelton's body was photographed twice, first wearing the mask, and then unmasked. See more »

Personally, I was enthralled with this Western from the start and stayed that way. It delivers twists and turns that keep you planted to your chair, and after reading some of the reviews of others, I was surprised at the 'nic picking' that went on while comparing it with the 'Hateful Eight". This movie stands on its own, and if H8 hadn't of been out, then I feel the reviews would have been more favourable. I thought it was great...it certainly turned corners and ventured into areas that would/or may offend others, yet being a lover of good movies, this 'epic' kept me glued to the screen. It is certainly well worth the watch, so you can determine for yourself.
