“This is a poorly acted, directed and scripted film about the “ghost” of an 1875 blacksmith named “one-eye” Earl Yardley who murdered half the town. A group of young males, who stripped down to their shorts a lot, are paid to go find his tools. When they find one, they get killed. That is about it. Plenty of young beefcake for the chickenhawk.” No God No Monsters
