Cool scenery but everything else feels 'off' ESPECIALLY some of the casting. The slightly bigger lady reminds me of the Southern female boss from The Office. The main male character is just so out of place. The accents feel forced and fake. It feels like that Western that MacFarlane made.. but it's a serious movie. Sure doesn't feel serious.
The guns looked pretty cool...
Why people would spend time and money (not much though obviously) producing such a laughably lame pile of nonsense is beyond me.
Once I saw that Popcorn Joe was involved I was sold. An excellent horror western tale of a group of outlaws who unwittingly deliver a witch to her coven and suffer the results. Hampered by a drastically low budget this tale is well acted and has decent effects but would have seriously benefitted with more money. 3.5/5 A great tale of redemption and sacrifice. Another first time watch for Halloween 2022 (#11)
I, at least, finished it. Gives me hope that I can my own movie one day.
