HORROR TEN SPOT: Favorite Horror-WesternsWhile I'm still sort of in envious shock that Jon Favreau celebrity deejayed JoBlo's Comic-Con party, I am really interested in seeing how his high concept mash-up, COWBOYS & ALIENS, will fare at the box-office this week. It's a star studded event film, no doubt, but one we really haven't seen before. It's not a prequel, sequel or remake, but it is based on a graphic novel that has found relative success. But most interesting is the two opposing genres Favreau has chosen to revel in: the western and the alien-invasion template. Now, I for one am a huge fan of that rare breed of horror-western, but truthfully, it's quite a bereft subgenre. Not only are there few horror-westerns, there's even fewer done well. And while you may technically codify COWBOYS & ALIENS as a sci-fi-western...we thought it'd be a good idea to dredge up some of the best of the breed. Here now is my Top Ten Sci-Fi-Horror-Westerns!
