Ever heard of Sunn Classic Films? Charles E. Sellier ? Robert Halmi Sr.? These filmmakers used to do projects that were exactly what people wanted to see over & over again.That’s a gift that is sorely lacking for viewers today.
Ron Ford is the autuer behind this mini-HORROR/WESTERN (google it),It has real horses,actors dressed authentically for time period and some cool effects.
There are two actors,we wanna highlight,Mitch Tiner (see interview elsewhere) is the bad guy and does some amazing transformations…Think Fred Olen Ray’s go-to tough guy Ross Hagen( waiting while you go look up his IMDB) mashed with Paul Naschy beastiness ,Will Lund plays a proud american indian in the tradition of Trevor Howard ( Windwalker) and Alex Cord (Grayeagle,Which was directed by Charles B.Pierce)…Get it ?
So,If your a horse lover,This film has real horses,Amazing I know;But you may not like what is done to one of them*SPOILER WARNING.
The make-up is pretty great and Mitch Tiner becomes A BEAST before us.
There is some bad,Which is hard to understand with talent involved,Some of the footage is murky or VHS-like and some ADR(gunshots and lip-sync matching) did’nt come thru.
