In 1892 a convicted outlaw arrives in a small Colorado town to be hanged for his crimes only to end up rescuing the town from alien invaders.

“High Plains Invaders” was filmed in Romania in December of 2008. Lead actor James Marsters said the film was a way to reinvent the Western film genre, which often had the same elements and types of characters, by including alien mechanical bugs.

  2. This the one where you can see the back supports for another building facing in the opposite direction. Was quite a distraction and I don't know why that wasn't removed digitally. You can see it on the left of the photo above.
