There’s a lot that’s attractive about films that attempt to combine zombies and an “Old West” setting, though to date no one has succeeded in capturing the essence of an undead western mythos as well as Joe Lansdale in his “Dead in the West” novel and graphic novels.

Perhaps this new film will be an exception:

Gallowwalker (US/UK-2009; dir. Andrew Goth)

A mysterious gunman, Aman, is the son of a nun who breaks her covenant with God to ensure his survival. This act brings a curse upon Aman – all those that die by his gun will return. Soon, he is hunted by a gang of his undead former victims, led by the vicious Kansa. Aman enlists Fabulos, a new young warrior, to fight by his side. (IMDB)

The following trailer has just been posted at DreadCentral:

At any rate, the film, which stars Wesley Snipes as Aman) may be a change from the standard presentation of zombie tropes (not that there’s anything wrong with those ….).
