When a family of Dakota Territory pioneers is violently abducted and a posse is assembled to venture into the badlands and rescue them, the frightening truth they discover in the hills leads them to believe man may not be the only hunter stalking the Old West. The year is 1879, and beyond the fringes of civilization a handful of courageous pioneers maintain settlements while exploring the unknown territories. One night, under the shimmering Western stars, a family from one of these settlements is brutally dragged into darkness by a group of unknown invaders. At first the kidnappers are thought to be hostile Native Americans, and a posse forms to bring the family back home safely. Venturing out into the unmapped territories is an Irish immigrant desperate to find his lost love, a naïve teen eager to prove his worth, a former slave seeking his fortune after gaining his freedom, and a hardened pair of battle-weary Indian fighters. But nature's wrath and the tomahawks of hostile tribes aren't the only threats that this group will be forced to contend with, because as the bodies begin to multiply and the truth about the abductors gradually emerges, these rescuers will find out that there are forces in this world that can't be described in human terms -- and that seem to have motivations beyond our comprehension. Clancy Brown, William Mapother, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Doug Hutchison star in Soft for Digging director J.T. Petty's subterranean Western shocker. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Great horror movie!June 4, 2009
This was actully a really good movie, my wife and I loved it! I personally like horror/ westerns, there's only a few and are usually pretty good. This film actually has quite a few actors that aren't big names, but have been secondary actors in a lot of big movies. The special effects and creature effects are very good. This is not a 'B' movie, it just wasn't big enough to go to theaters. If you're a movie buff like myself and are tired of the endless sea of hit or miss movies that go straight to DVD, then you need to get this movie, it's a hit. This is a great creature feature with a neat plot and is fun to watch. I highly recommend it! Also, if you like horror/ westerns, you should checkout Dead Birds.
I would recommend this to a friend
