Eyes of Fire

Eyes of Fire is a 1983 horror film. It takes place in 1750 on the American frontier, and involves an outcast preacher, Indians and a haunted wood. The special effects and the music are dated, typical 80s fare, but the story and pacing are good. There's Magic. And Faery. I'm adding this one to my list of western horror films.

via youtube:

The New York Times calls it a "bizarrely fascinating story". has screen shots, a lengthy plot summary, and this conclusion: "For general creepiness and overall weirdness, I give this film 4 fangs out of 5. If you’re a die-hard horror fiend, this one belongs on your shelf!"

Twitch Film closes by saying, "for all its shortcomings it still treads gloriously bizarre territory and very much deserves to be seen and assessed by a new generation of cinephiles." Killer Reviews says, "The movie does what so few horror films do nowadays: it builds up tension." Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have a critics score but has an audience score of 70%.
