    High-end western thriller from Sturgis, classy flick... save for that hambone John Saxon performance, yeesh.

    Ehh, alright, it's pretty cute. Although I hate Brad Bird's human character designs, I adored Remy's little windowsill bedroom setups.

    Bonus points for Holm, O'Toole and Dennehey.

    Honest question: did The Menu get their third-act "cheeseburger" hail mary-plot twist from this?

    33 % old school, Dead Silence-era James Wan, dripping in his patented atmospherics that I love so much: fog, neon, overhead shots, and the only director working today that can efficiently and effectively pull off jump scares.

    33 % 90s Darkman / Army of Darkness-era Sam Raimi splat-stick pyrotechnic stunt show silliness, Dutch angles and zooms and dreary, noir-y set pieces that I had forgotten how much I loved and realized has been missing in my life for far too…

    A long time placeholder on my personal watchlist that as a kid I always thought was a flaming cheeseball of the highest order.

    But growing up if somebody, anybody told me that one of my cinematic lord and saviours: RG Armstrong played the alcoholic basement dwelling janitor named "Sarge"; well, you bet your ass I woulda seen it ages ago.

    Thanks for helping me scratch it off the ol' bucket list, Joe Bob!
