Whilst there's a bunch of western fans all in one place.
Doe's anyone know the name of a Western Horror (I'd have seen it in the late 80's in the Naafi.)
It was in premise similar to the ww1 Death Watch.
A bunch of Chaps travelling through the High Country come across a wagon that appears to have been attacked by a war party.
With only one near catatonic female survivor. As the party tries to leave the valley they're harassed by unseen natives arrows flying from nowhere.
As the movie progress it dawns on the party that the survivor isn't what she seems ultimately ending in a show down with her.As the groups guide realise her true nature.
The film ends with the woman repositioning her self amongst the carnage back around the wagon from the start of the film.
Whilst off in the distance you can just see and hear a new group of travellers approaching the wagon site.
It made quite the impression but I had to go on duty so the name slipped me. It still does.

A quick perusal shows maybe "Eyes of Fire"?

Tin Shed Gamer's mystery movie is The Curse of Demon Mountain or Demon Mountain or Thunder Mountain or Wishbone Cutter or The Ballad of Virgil Cane or The Shadow of Chikara, all starring Sondra Locke and Joe Don Baker and some very convincing falling horses. Versions cut for TV where you have to insert your own cuss words but they don't cut the falling horses. Oh no, they leave that right in!

Have to say I am very much enjoying the series "1883" that is currently on Paramount.

I think it's the "origin" story for the modern series "Yellowstone" but it is a series in its own right with no direct connection to the latter.


Oh and Sam Elliot is in it - what's not to like!

I'm about to watch the last episode in a minute. In my 'umble opinon, it's every bit as good as the first series of 'Lonesome Dove'.

I remember seeing ads for '1883', but I ignored it after seeing Paramount+ pop up, etc.  I don't do many (occasionally zero!) streaming services, so all of these shows behind various paywalls aren't on my "to do" list, unfortunately.

Open Range is GREAT, everything is good but the final gunfight is better than almost anything I've seen. But if I had to say what was stand it would be Robert Duvall and Michael Gambon.

Wyatt Earp is too, longer but better than Tomestone (?).

You should also watch Deadwood (and the first two seasons of Hell on Wheels).

And of course: Warrior, it was "written" by Bruce Lee and whild be back for a third season.
