"I picked up "Fort Doom" cheap and really didn't expect too much from it. It turned out to be a pretty decent slasher film set in the old West. Scream Queen Debbie Rochon stars as a madam moving her trade to Missouri, where she has recently inherited a house, after the Civil War. Coming along for the ride are her sister, two prostitutes, and a young photographer the sister befriended on the train. Once they arrive in town they meet some strange characters: the creepy mortician(played by Billy Drago), the not too welcoming sheriff, and the seemingly friendly town doctor. Then bodies start piling up.
At first the killings are blamed on Indians, but Rochon and her group have other suspicions. There are more murders and then the killer is revealed, but there's another plot twist in store.
"Fort Doom", despite its low budget, has a professional quality about it. The filmmakers were careful to write dialog that was realistic of its era. The sets and costumes were also very good. My rating would have been higher had there been any extras on the DVD. We get to see some bloopers during the end credits, but that's it.
If you're in the mood for something a little bit different in the horror genre, give "Fort Doom" a try."
