Movie Info

Grim Prairie Tales applies the Tales from the Crypt formula to the Old West. Four horror yarns are related to Eastern dude Farley (Brad Dourif) by sinister mountaineer Morrison (James Earl Jones). In the first, a drifter named Lee (Will Hare) pays a terrible price when he desecrates a sacred Indian burial ground. In the second, travelling salesman Tom (Marc McLure) is lured into a disastrous romantic tryst by a seemingly pregnant woman (Michelle Joyner). In the third, Southerner Arthur (William Atherton) has a bad habit of lynching every black man he meets, a "hobby" that, of course, ultimately backfires. And the final story details the downfall of a gunslinger (Scott Paulin) when he's challenged by the ghost of one of his victims. Though it strives to please, Grim Prairie Tales is frequently bushwhacked by its budget limitations.more

Audience Reviews for Grim Prairie Tales

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.
