The first episode opens with a sheriff's posse riding into a town, dead rotting bodies everywhere, Next at night a lady confronts a stranger who doesn't "declare himself" so she shoots him out of the saddle. An "badman" and his owl hoot henchmen visit a Doctor in the middle of the night. The "badman" tells the doctor he has been shot. Next you see the Doc looking at the wound in his arm and you can see through the bullet hole out the other side and the Doc explains that he has to amputate the Badman tells him to go ahead. The scene shifts outside. A pair of gunman are talking while this is going on you hear the Badman screaming in agony as the Doc cuts off his arm. That is just how is starts out. Is there such a thing as a Gothic Western if there is this is one. It reminds me of Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter (1973) only much, much darker and fantastically more brutal. As I watch this western I am thinking to myself zombie gunslinger cowboys would not be out of place on this one.
