As its title indicates, this is a strange cross of movie genres, and lest any viewers get antsy, it doesn't allow much time to pass before we first encounter UFOs in the Old West. The film takes its time unraveling the rest of the story...

The cast is outstanding. The story is compelling-at times, even touching, and the aliens are cool. Sure there are some plot-holes, but they do more right than wrong.
