Storyline

As Jon (Shawn Welling / Michael Biehn) and Joy Ford (Tory Tompkins) move into the small town of DarkHorse, mysterious and supernatural occurrences threaten to tear the town apart. Teenage girl abductions and a chain of serial killings force good-ol'-boy Sheriff McElroy (Lee Majors / Larry Wade Carrell), the town's rugged symbol of justice, to use any means necessary to keep his beloved town from tumbling into chaos, and when Joy's nieces (Olivia 'ChaChi' Gonzales and Presley Bishop) are kidnapped, they must race to find the abductor and in turn come face to face with a monster.

Top notch script and inspiring story with weak action
5 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Believe me I 'get' this movie.

A movie that doesn't follow Hollywood 'formula' can be very good. But this movie was a hit with a couple of misses. And yes, I understand part of the appeal is a great plot twist, but so what. I require strong plot humor and a "good deal of action" - all 3.

In the third act the film amps up with some really nice action scenes that made me feel cheated I did not see this in the films earlier acts.

They had two bad guys, both great, but I needed more understanding of how they were connected. Fortunately I could easily discount that and stay engaged without a bother to the strong story punch at the end.

I like movies that are entertaining on face value, and have a subtext and/or character arc that allow you to think and see some value and depth to the movie. Legend of Darkhorse County has it; I just would like a few more gun shots and action scenes to keep me involved to what already was a strong story with more than believable acting.

This movie was OK entertaining at face value until the end then it became something more or significant than just entertainment. When it was over I was thinking back trying to figure out some hidden meanings, or something I have missed and then found on both a religious and sociological splendor - part of the fun.

I just have to say everyone and anyone that likes indie films they should see it. Sorry about all the gushing on demanding for more action, that is just me.

This movie is undoubtedly not for everyone.

Make an Indie version of "Taken" with less action and and a better plot twist (easy to do) and that is what you are in for - still a good watch
