Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 29th, 2008

A horror western

Just combining horror and westerns makes this film an interesting watch.

There is not a great amount of blood and gore, but enough to make it interesting. We could have seen more of Nicki Aycox; that would have made it more interesting.

The acting is good for a direct-to-DVD film. Henry Thomas (Indictment: The McMartin Trial, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial) and Isaiah Washington ("Grey's Anatomy") did very good jobs.

The story is familiar: nasty things go on in a house and our thieves just happen upon it. The ghosts of the past return to claim more victims. Nothing new there except for the western twist.

Worth a watch.
