  • CURSE OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN (1974) – This neglected beauty twists a classic horror story in a way that even Paul Naschy himself must have stood in awe of.

    CURSE OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN – CategoryLaughably bad with an enjoyably weird premise but not fun-bad enough for my highest rating This film could easily be reviewed as part of my segment called The Bad, The Weird And The Freaky, which examines weird westerns, especially with the Frontierado Holiday coming up the first Friday in August.

    However, this film is set in the 1970’s, so to me that outweighs its western features and makes it deserving of my Bad Movie Page instead. Curse of the Headless Horseman twists a classic horror story in a way that even Paul Naschy himself must have stood in awe of.

Curse of the Headless Horseman (1972) - IMDb

Following hot on the heels of his Carnival of Blood (and long before Sleepy Hollow), director LEONARD KIRTMAN (who made mostly hardcore porno and is billed here as "John Kirkland") continued to mine the dubious link between amusement parks and booga-booga with Curse of the Headless Horseman, one of the oddballest hippie-type horror films ever made. Medical student Mark Callahan (MARLAND PROCTOR of the nudie western Fandango) inherits his late uncle's "ranch" which actually turns out to be a dumpy wildwest-themed tourist attraction called "Callahan's Old West." But there's a catch: Mark's got to make the place profitable in six months or it goes to creepy Solomon, the caretaker. (Solomon is referred to as an old man by everyone in the cast but he doesn't look a day older than the rest of them. He does, however, have the complexion of a dead lizard.) So Mark visits the place with his girlfriend, Brenda (CLAUDIA REAM), and all their semi-hippie friends and, after hearing an old coot sing a cowboy tune, the whole gang abruptly decides to move in and live there. Just like that. (Don't they have homes? Jobs? Lives?)
