A group of college kids coming back from a debating competition learn they need to pick up a broken down bus carrying the local hockey team. Upon doing so, they become lost in the desert. The bus finds itself in the deserted western town of Hope Springs, were outlaw cowboy, Reb Halland, weaves his demonic magic. In this town, ghost bandits from the past return to earth every thirteen years to re-fight a shoot-out. As jocks and nerds are picked off one by one, they must work together to fight their way out or they will be stuck in the supernatural town for the next thirteen years.

*This film premiers tonight on the SyFy Channel.


  1. Biltmore: How was it? Did actually show the west circa 1880????

  2. The beginning was very well done most of the townspeople were shot and an entire building holding a half dozen women was blown up with dynamite. Drago took one of the kids heads off with a whip so there was plenty of modern day gore the horror fanatics love. Problem was the college kids were so obnoxious you were actually rooting for the ghosts. The set was average and no musical score to say of but not as bad as most SyFy or Hallmark made for TV westerns.
