Verdict on Ghost Town
Ghost Town is a horror western that follows a stranger joining a small town, getting a job only to find himself dealing with unexplained events. This sees him having to deal with basic western problems, but when things don’t add up, it only gets more confusing for him. Leading us down a path of wanting to know what happened in his past.
This is a movie that leads us down an interesting path. It starts with what seems like a generic idea, only for most of what we see to be turned on its head by the end of the movie. This is a movie that gets a big reward for the final act, which is the strongest part of the generic western we are seeing unfold. Owen Conway writes, directs and stars in the movie, carrying his vision throughout the film.
Final Thoughts – Ghost Town is a great mystery that keeps you guessing.
