Into the Badlands
The bizarre career of New Zealand filmmaker Sam Pillsbury had veered from the sci-fi weirdness of The Quiet Earth to the Cajun spice of Zandalee to the mawkish Free Willy 3 without ever really demonstrating a consistent vision. This made-for-cable horror-western anthology is the most confused work Pillsbury has ever done, starring Bruce Dern as a bounty hunter who gets frostbitten, cuts off his own toe, and talks to an outlaw's corpse. His attempt to track down the outlaw is the rough link behind this senseless mess adapted from some fairly good short stories. It still might have some allure for a surprising cast including Andrew Robinson (the killer from Dirty Harry), Helen Hunt, and Dylan McDermott. The most annoying segment has Mariel Hemingway as an eccentric woman who may or may not be under siege by wolves in her isolated home on the prairie. It's sometimes reminiscent of Mad at the Moon, an even more annoying prairie-set wolf tale. For genre completists, Lisa Pelikan from Ghoulies shows up, and co-writer Dick Beebe went on to pen the superior remake of House on Haunted Hill and the uneven Book of Shadows: The Blair Witch Project 2. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Dead Man's Revenge
A fugitive, a former slave, and a U.S. Marshal team up to free a desperate small town from the grip of a corrupt railroad tycoon in this western featuring Oscar-nominated actor Bruce Dern and Saw series veteran Tobin Bell. Thanks to the railroad, Payton McCay (Bruce Dern) has become a very rich man. But his cruelty knows no bounds. No one who's crossed him has lived to tell the tale, and as a result the locals cower at the mere mention of his name. McCay soon meets his match, however, in the form of three unlikely allies who won't be intimidated by his wealth and power. Luck Hatcher (Michael Ironside) is a fugitive driven by vengeance, and together with U.S. Marshal Bodine Michael (Keith Coulouris) and bounty hunter Jessup Bush (Vondie Curtis-Hall) - a one-time slave who is no stranger to breaking the bonds of oppression - he's about to teach McCay that no amount of money can pay for the innocent blood that's been shed in his ruthless quest for control of the Wild West. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
