It's a mixture of Western and a mixture of Horror, and it's called The Burrowers (don't believe it's screened here I won't say too much).

There are some strange goings-on out in the West, when a family goes missing. As it's a white family, a posse gets together and goes out hunting (Red) Skins, but there may be more going on than just human interactions.

Performance-wise we're talking mid-level stars here, some people you would recognise, but no big name stars. There does seem to be a 'subdued light' filter to everything, but the night scenes are quite viewable. The creatures are built up slowly, with just hints to begin with, until we finally see... whatever they are. (San loss!) To be honest, the ending wasn't that surprising.

A decent enough movie, but nothing earth-shattering. Not over the top horror, but it gets the job done. If you like this sort of movie and have time spare, not a bad way to pass the time.
