Terror Tales director Jimmy Lee Combs just revealed the first poster for his upcoming supernatural Western Spirit Reckoning. Aside from a brief synopsis, we don’t know a whole lot more right now, but we’re eagerly awaiting to see where this goes.
Spirit Reckoning takes place in circa 1875, and tells the story of Sam Conley, a farmer with a wicked gambling addiction trying to make ends meet for his family. Upon returning home, Sam is killed by some petty outlaws alongside his wife and child. To return the favor on a good deed Sam did for the Indian people, a Shaman brings Sam’s spirit back from the dead as an avenging skull cowboy. However, this comes with its set of side effects as Sam’s emotions intensify making him feel rage more extreme and sadness more deep than the normal person, which brings humility to Sam much like Frankenstein’s Monster. “Spirit Reckoning” is a wild ride, that combines the elements of horror with the setting of a Western, seeing the protagonist go on a high octane, bullet-trenched, blood-soaked revenge spree. Who will prevail?
