An American horror film directed by Michael de Gaetano.

Plot Summary

A Native American woman named Abanaki condemns her accusers as she’s put to death and sent topless on horseback into the desert having terrorised a Civil War-era small town. In the mid-70s, she’s still said to be roaming the hills outside town. At a dying-on-its-feet tourist trap movie ranch, brothers Patrick and Russ try in vain to keep it afloat while caring for their blind and widowed mother and are still puzzling over a telephone booth that has been incongruously installed in the town graveyard when British actress Jennifer – who looks just like Abanaki – turns up en route for Hollywood and charms Patrick.
