Ghost Town (Todor Chapkanov, 2009)
[note: review originally published 3Nov2009]
Billy Drago is one of those actors whose presence in a movie ensures I’ll watch it. This can lead to some unfortunate movie choices, most recently Ghost Town, a silly haunted-town flick containing nothing you haven’t seen before. Including Billy Drago as a gunslinger. (Think Imprint here.)
Plot: five gunslingers, led by Reb Halland (Drago), have made a pact with the devil to gain immortality. They destroy a small town in the old west, then commit suicide. Many years later, a combined college group of hockey players and debate-team members gets lost and ends up in the town, where the ghosts decide to get in some target practice.
No, nothing out of the ordinary, and with nothing at all to distinguish it. Most of the acting is awful, the script is silly, the direction wooden. Even getting your Billy Drago fix on isn’t worth this mess. *
