I've seen a lot of weird movies...

"and this one ranks right up there. The back of the tape describes it as a "surreal western" and that's about right. It includes many characters that die but not really, some unique hallucinations, and narrations that are either creepy or funny depending on your interpretation. My dad bought this one off of a discount rack for $6, thinking it was a normal western. It's really a horror movie, and a weird one at that. My favorite movies are the strange sick ones, so I liked it very much. If you have similar taste, you'll definitely like this one. To classify it as a Western is really ridiculous. It's a few short creepy stories tied in together by one common character, and the fact that it takes place in the old West seems almost incidental. "Normal" people probably wouldn't like this one, and when my parents saw it, they said they couldn't believe that Helen Hunt, Dylan McDermott, and Mariel Hemingway would ever be in it."
A Different, but Enjoyable Western

"Provocative to say the least. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and bought the DVD to always have it on hand. In this made for TV film, representing a compilation of three short stories, Bruce Dern was exceptional in his role as a bounty hunter. It depicts aspects of bounty hunting ranging from the thrill, to the harsh reality to even the comedic. Although many people did not like the style in which the film was cut, I found its unexpected twists and turns along with its overall mystique very entertaining. The music is very compelling and ties the film together nicely. If you like "high pride" Westerns, this is a must see."
This is a bad a** movie

"If you like westerns, and you like tales from the crypt, this movie is for you. Three tales held together by a common character, and a corpse that won't stay down! this movie is the best!"
