High Plains Drifter

High Plains Drifter ★★★★

Eastwood plays a literal/figurative Angel (Demon) Of Death in this psychological horror film posing as a western. Loaded with horrifying sequence after horrifying sequence but the scene where The Stranger slowly rides out as the dumbstruck town looks on in a mixture of confusion and pure fear has to rank as one of the most bone-chilling moments in all of Eastwood's oeuvre.
