Ride in the Whirlwind

Ride in the Whirlwind

Three cowhands, between jobs, have the bad dumb luck to pitch night camp in the same valley as a cabin full of guys who just robbed a stagecoach and killed the guard. Come morning, a posse arrives, forms up along the ridge, and takes for granted that everyone down below is guilty--fit for either shooting to bits or hanging from a tree, whichever comes first. Precisely half of Ride in the Whirlwind's 82 minutes is devoted to tapping the matter-of-fact, absurdist horror of that situation. In the remaining half, the two surviving cowpokes (Jack Nicholson and Cameron Mitchell) seek shelter at a farmhouse where they reluctantly threaten the farmer, accept breakfast from his wife, flirt with his daughter (Millie Perkins), play some checkers, and hope to remain undetected till nightfall.

Wes, Vern and Otis are three cowhands on the way to a cattle drive. Coming upon what is to be an omen of their future... an outlaw hung by a group of vigilantes...the trio finds shelter at a cabin, only to discover that their "hosts" are men who have robbed a stagecoach and killed the guard. When an avenging posse attacks the cabin, Wes and Vern escape, only to find that they have become branded as 'outlaws' by the posse, who relentlessly pursue them. .

Zachary M (es) wrote: If you're a fan of horror movies, like me, you've seen enough to notice certain tropes in them from the "virgin always lives" to the "black guy gets it first" and everything in between. Like Scream, this movie sets out to play with the ideas and tropes of the horror movie genre. For the most part, it works. The concept as to why they're doing it, is very unique and all the creature effects and designs are beautiful. The comedy works best when it's the side character doing it, and not the main group of kids. Maybe now that he seems to be done with the Marvel Universe, for the moment, maybe Joss Whedon can go back to making what he does best, weird and yet strangely compelling horror comedies. Here's hoping.

June N (nl) wrote: This had ALL the elements to be a very creepy, spooky movie but it missed it's mark on that. The only redeeming quality for this film is the acting from Qi Shu and a couple of others. It had so much potential and I won't give the ending away but I thought it was pretty stupid. It wasn't a TOTAL waste of time, but I would not recommend it.

Voy O (br) wrote: I watched this film in the winter of 2017, so quite a long time after its premiere. I really regret that I missed it in the cinema as it is an amazing film written in a fresh way, starring one of my favourite actors Jake Gyllenhaal. Story is gripping and unpredictable, keeping you at the edge of the chair from very beginning.

John B (us) wrote: An all star cast can't seem to raise this from a middling effort. Shows you that talent can't save every film.
