In 1865, an Indian woman is accused of witchcraft and sent topless into the desert to die. The film then cuts to the present, and we're soon introduced to the films setting which is a desolate ghost town that was also used as a movie ranch. The only people who live there are a small family, and the town consists of some strange statues and a small cemetery that's having a phone booth installed. The entire town is surrounded by a barren desert, mountains, and there's a lake nearby. One night the phone rings in the cemetery; the uncle answers it and apparently hears the voice of the Indian woman. At this point, the film starts to become confusing as to whether he's going insane or if the ghost of the Indian woman is returning. There's talk of stuff like reincarnation, and the viewer is basically left to decide if the movie is about insanity or something supernatural.
This film is extremely slow moving, and it gets talky at times. Almost the entire film takes place in this deserted town or film ranch. This location provides good scenery and creepy atmosphere. I personally really like the place where they filmed this; the town combined with the desert, mountains and lake give the film a nice midnight viewing type feel. However, I don't think most horror fans will like it because it's too slow and lacks action. If you're looking for violence and gore, you won't find it here. Some old woman in a cave gets strangled, and there's a bit of blood near the end from a stabbing and that's it. There's some topless nudity in the film, but there's no explicit sex or full nudity. Some of the music is good and the directing is acceptable, but not much happens during most of the film; people walk around, talk, and you get a good look at the scenery. It's got a great 70s feel, but most horror fans might consider it to be extremely boring; I really liked it, but many will hate it.
The DVD quality looks great for such an obscure and cheap film. The picture is sharp, and it has excellent color and contrast. It doesn't look perfect, but they did a good job considering its rarity. There's a good interview with one of the actors on the DVD. He talks about how Aldo Ray was an alcoholic and drunk during a lot of the film, as well as discussing the movie and that he was one of the only straight people on set because he says everyone was gay.
