Gallowwalkers is a horror western film directed by Andrew Goth and starring Wesley Snipes, Kevin Howarth, Riley Smith and Tanit Phoenix. Co-stars include professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page. The film as of 2013, has been released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Plot[edit]

After a group of outlaws kills his lover, Aman (Snipes) goes after them and kills them. When he is killed himself, a nun, his mother, breaks her covenant with God to save the life of Aman, which in turn curses him for life. His curse brings his victims back to life, and as the undead, they pursue him endlessly for revenge. Forever suffering this curse and still seeking revenge, Aman enlists Fabulos (Smith), a young gunman, to fight by his side against his undead victims.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The film first came to general attention in 2005 as The Wretched with Chow Yun-fat penciled in to star as zombie bounty hunter Rellik.[1][2][3] The film dropped off the radar until the involvement of Wesley Snipes brought it back to press attention.

The filming in Namibia coincided with Snipes' tax problems.[4] The backer, Gary Smith, has ensured there was a completion bond as back-up, but Smith declared, "We are happy that he continues to turn up on set each day. If his indictment creates this amount of press it shows he is a star."[5]
