140914: What's surprising about this movie is that it's not too bad. Very low budget but they had the right idea. Sheriff Bubba is a classic, along with the late 70s/early 80s police vehicles; and Langley's revolver (I will update this review once I figure it out). Love the crime scene investigation with Bubba and Langley sitting/touching Kate's car. There are some neat ideas within like when Langley's Blaser (he calls it a Bronco) melts and catches fire. Same with bad guys bursting into flames when killed. Of course, one could ask why the modern shotgun and pistol don't do the same? This is a fun film if you don't ask too many questions. I enjoyed this film though the acting is pretty bad and the budget obviously low. Might even be three stars.
Ghost Town is a delightful creepy B movie. A forgotten gem of the 1980's, Ghost Town.is a well crafted horror film that emphasizes on all that makes horror films fun to watch. Whats surprising is that the main character when he arrives in the abandoned ghost town, he acts as if everything is normal. It's pretty funny. This film definitely has enough scares and thrills to keep you interested til the end. The film is quite original and the story is well paced and well crafted. But the ending could have been stronger, but overall a solid and very enjoyable horror film. This is a film that needs to be put onto DVD, it's quite a great cult classic.
Ghost Town is the story of runaway bride Catherine Hickand who gets abducted in the middle of the desert when her car breaks down by an unknown assailant riding a horse. In comes hotshot policeman Franc Luz, whose on the trail which leads him to a literal Ghost Town, where ghosts are cursed to live there in purgatory until the evil gunslinger Devin (Jimmie F. Skaggs) and his gang are taken out. While the film is slow to start, it gets moving when Luz finally starts taking on the gang and the end result is a decent 80's western horror. For the most part, the acting isn't all that bad from this relatively small-scale cast, save for Bruce Glover (Crispin's father) who has a small role as one of the townsman. There's plenty of western violence and a decent amount of blood thrown around. All in all, not a bad movie.
