This ultra-low-budget, tongue-in-cheek Western, set in 1893, reaches heights of giddy imagination that elude more earnest productions. . . . Alta Mariah holds a séance that gives new meaning to the notion of a ghost town, and Ozanne’s geological explications of iconic Western landscapes cast the entire history of movie Westerns in a profound new light. The journey culminates in a masterstroke of threadbare spectacle.
