Synopsis by Cavett Binion
Ray Dennis Steckler (aka Wolfgang Schmidt), purveyor of such unfathomable oddities as The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies and Rat Pfink-A-Boo Boo, foisted this gem on an unsuspecting drive-in public not once but twice in a single decade, first as The Chooper in 1971, then again in 1980 (with a pointlessly-padded runtime). The story (a word used very generously here) features a brooding Carolyn Brandt as the sole heir to a piece of dustbowl property which is allegedly haunted by a mincing figure known as "The Chooper" -- not actually one of Steckler's patented title typos, but the name of a vengeful Indian demon (or something). While the camped-up menace prances around "chooping" people with his trusty saber, a sleazy land developer tries to convince Brandt to sell the property and git while the gittin's good... well, any viewer that hasn't figured it out by now should be made to sit all the way through this tedious, post-dubbed groaner, made even more insufferable by several minutes of stock rodeo footage.
