This strange Mexican production is a curious amalgam of genres, equal parts gritty western and Edgar Allan Poe-inspired suspense, with a little lowbrow comedy thrown in for good measure. The story finds our affable hero and his comic-relief sidekick riding into peril when they encounter a family cursed by the ghost of the "Crying Woman" and the manipulations of a mysterious witch. Nice touches include a woman whose fear of being buried alive prompts her to install an alarm in her own coffin. New scenes were added by the American distributor under the supervision of producer K. Gordon Murray.
