Fergus Coffey: "He called you Walnut." Walnut Callaghan: "Yeah, he did." Fergus Coffey: "Is that your name?" Walnut Callaghan: "The name's Callaghan." Fergus Coffey: "Callaghan... You Irish?" (they both smile) Walnut Callaghan: "That man that called me 'Walnut' believes he's better than me because nobody ever owned him. But I'm not enlisted. I cook for Abe Lincoln, but I'm paid - I can leave anytime I want. You understand?" Fergus Coffey: "Sure... I'm Fergus Coffey." Walnut Callaghan: "Coffey... You black?" (they both smile)

Movie was captivating at the start but soon turned to a drag because of low production values, marginal dialogues and subpar acting, particularly for the Indians. The star of the show were the Burrowers and they turned up as creatures from a high school drama project.

I'm not one for westerns, i do like my horror though and i applaud originality. That being said, this could have def been better, but i give it a thumbs up for thinking outside of the box.

This is an unusual film, a "horror/Western", set in the remote prairies of the Dakota Territories, in 1879. It's fairly well written, although the pace could use a boost in the first half. The 'things' present a fate worse than death to their victims. Personally, I wouldn't have minded if the sadistic bluecoat captain was on their list. The ending was unexpected, but definitely came from a realist.
