Not to be confused with another Scream -- that of a jubilant Wes Craven when he went to the bank in 1993 with the release of his popular horror film -- this much weaker Scream was never heard at the box office. Like in many a similar film, a most thick-headed group of dullards go hiking for the weekend, this time in a remote Western ghost town. Once there, they end up joining the ghosts, one by one. As they sit waiting for the next victim to be bumped off, a horseback-riding stranger comes into town. He entertains them with a story of his seafaring days nearly a half-century earlier and then rides off -- but not for long. Apparently that was the intermission.
