Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat ★★★½

Anthony Hickox directs and Bruce Campbell stars in this vampire western. 
The b-movie heritage of both shines through here, lending the film a slightly tongue-in-cheek vibe that never falls into outright farce, telling a solid tale of vampire civil war in the old west. It feels oddly sanitised for both the subject matter, and compared to the filmographies of Hickox and Campbell: squibs are let off as the vampires engage in a shootout, but in terms of horror, there’s very little bloodsucking. An unfairly forgotten family-friendly horror movie, made by an unfairly forgotten genre expert.
