I've watched a few lately. Most aren't great.

The Burrowers would be my choice. It's the Searchers with monsters.

mega ditto to Mad Monkey. When I get the three figures painted I will do a "Back of Beyond" game of that movie.

Would Bone Tomahawk count?

Cowboys vs Aliens?

While not a typical case of the Weird West, I've always considered "High Plains Drifter" to be a ghost/spirit revenge story.

The supernatural or sort of supernatural is pretty common in Westerns.

Often more on the mystic power of the Samurai/ Kung-Fu type.
But plenty of very low cost Westerns with vampires, werewolves, and plenty of ghosts.

One of the Tremors sequels, maybe 4, is set in the old west.
And other mystic beasts play parts in otherwise normal westerns.

Cowboys VS Aliens is my vote

Adventures of Briscoe County Jr. that pretty much covered it all.

"The Beast of Hollow Mountain."
A reel classic.

Just finished watching The Good, the Bad, and the Weird. I really enjoyed it. Great idea for a Pulp game or group of games. I think Korean made movies are better than Chinese.

"The Fiend Who Walked The West." Very bad acting from the main character, makes this one weird movie.

Cowboys VS Aliens

More "Cowboy Horror" but I liked "Bone Thomahawk".
