While age has not been very kind to this horror anthology, it still has redeemable qualities in leads James Earl Jones and Brad Dourif, its gritty wild west setting, and a woman with a black hole for a vagina.
Two travellers, one a well to do young clark on the way to a reunion with his wife, the other a scruffy, feral bounty hunter meet at sundown on a lonely prairie and agree to swap stories to pass the time. Honestly I watched it only once and it was enough.
Grim Prairie Tales is a one-of-a-kind, unique film in that it is a Western Horror Anthology film that focuses much more so on the western and dramatic tones of storytelling about the life in those times with minimal horror undertones. The stories within the film are interesting, ranging from an old grump unwisely traveling through a Native American Cemetery, a kind gent giving a helping hand to the wrong woman, a family nearly torn apart by deadly secrets, and finally, a story about gunfighters dueling for a prize they both don't bargain for. The stories are decent, though sometimes delving into the mediocre. What really makes this an excellent film are all of the scenes and the chemistry shared between leads Brad Dourif (playing a city boy traveling to be with his wife) and James Earl Jones (a haggard, old bounty hunter). The two work very well with each other and are really the core of this story, sharing the most entertaining and engaging moments. I loved every scene they were in together. Overall, good film.
