Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Trail of Terror is a PRC Studios western starring Dave O'Brien (here billed as Dave "Tex" O'Brien) and Jim Newell. Texas ranger O'Brien has an outlaw twin brother. When his sibling is killed, O'Brien assumes his identity in order to infiltrate a gang of stagecoach robbers. The ruse falls apart at a crucial moment, and it looks bad for O'Brien--but Newell helps him squeeze out of his predicament. The PRC westerns were always cheap, but Trail of Terror hit a new budget low; at one point, the sound equipment goes on the blink, and the pops, clunks and hisses are audible throughout the next few scenes.
