Normally when I am looking for an obscure movie it backfires on me, but not this one. I was really impressed with this, I told my wife that it was so good that I didn't care if there was a werewolf or not, it held its on as a western.
I love a good werewolf movie, or in this case, a shape shifter.
This wasn't perfect, there were some things that could have been better, but the flaws were few and far between.
The main thing that stood out to me was the characters, they were ALL very good, even the bad guys had a purpose. The female parts in this movie were all done very well also, as were the males, some were over the top just a little, but it didn't hurt the film the way I saw it. I REALLY didn't want anyone close to the end to die, I liked them all again, even the bad guys, I actually cared about them all, for a change.
The lead guy was good, but he played a character that was just a little too over the top, but the ending kind of explains the WHY he was acting that way, so it was O.K.
There were TWO really well done scenes that came out of nowhere, and no, I don't mean a jump scare, but surprise things that happened and it just flat out caught me competely off guard. I would pay GOOD MONEY for movies to catch me off guard, but they rarely do, so this was a nice surprise.
The stagecoach drivers and the people in the towns were all so well done it seemed almost real, the beginning made me like it right off.
If you like westerns, you will more than likely like it, if you like werewolf movies, you will probably like it, but to have them both together made it more enjoyable to me.
To the writers and actors, if you read this, I LOVED IT! Y'all really did a very good job! :)
