Synopsis: A mysterious gunslinger hunts a bad of undead villains across a barren landscape. That's about all you're going to get.

Review: Here's the thing about director Andrew Goth's long-delayed horror flick Gallowwalkers: As long as you don't spend too much time thinking about the story, you'll have a blast. The movie is visually rich, exceptionally bloody, and quite a bit of fun. Unfortunately, the story falls apart upon closer inspection. It's definitely a two-beer minimum kind of flick, especially if you're the sort of person who can't stand plot holes. Because there are a ton of plot holes. Wesley Snipes, meanwhile, does a fine job with the material, and it was nice to see him tackle something a bit more low-key. Despite the corny dialogue, pointless characters, and lackluster finale, I still enjoyed Gallowwalkers. Had Goth and Joanne Reay spent more time crafting a coherent script, the flick would have been a hell of a lot stronger. As it stands, this entertaining horror-western will only appeal to a small group of people. Watch it for the strong effects, incredible visuals, and Patrick Bergin's pointless little cameo. Try your very best to ignore the moth-eaten screenplay and confusing storyline. Otherwise, don't even bother.
