The Old West, not too long after the Civil War: Sudden, New Mexico, has been a peaceful little village for the most time, thanks also to its Sheriff Duncan (Buddy Clements), a just and level-headed man. So he can smell trouble from miles away when three strangers hit town: There's Mattie (Dianna Renée) and Cole (Joe Cornet), she a card shark, he a bounty hunter, who are honestly in love and are only longing for a better future but whose guns are a bit too loose to keep things peaceful and quiet for long, and then there's The Preacher (Curt Lambert), a (probably self-proclaimed) man of the Lord who has been a slave catcher before and during the war whose methods were too vile for even the most hardened Southerner. The three have one thing in common, they're all after some Confederate gold that legend has it has been hidden nearby, and a map to which a Confederate Captain has split up between the two women (Vitta Quinn, Lisa Race) he has been married to at the same time. Now somehow, Cole and the Preacher each get their hands on one half of the map, and Cole beats the Preacher to the gold - but it is quite simply too big a fortune not to spell doom on everybody who gets their hands on it ...


While not free of genre mainstays most of us have grown to love, A Prayer for the Damned is not another movie that glorifies the Old West or has distinct heroes - even the good guys in this just want to get by -, and it does a very good job at that, telling an engaging story rather than following a formula, and populating it with colourful and interesting characters whose motivations are palpable. And a well-written screenplay with some sharp dialogue, a directorial effort that sees beyond just the obvious, and a solid cast help make this a pretty good genre effort.
