The Buckskin Kid excerpts (film #3 on TV Turkeys (Rhino, 1987)). [Category: Early Film & TV]

The video artists on "Alive from Off-Center" could only aspire to make something this weird. This early 50s tv western with an all-kid cast and dubbed-in adult voices just takes the cake in the strangeness department. In addition to the general weirdness generated by seeing kids talk in adult "character" voices and riding around on hobby horses, the production is incredibly cheap and shoddy, adding a dark mood to everything. Just where did Rhino dig this one up, anyway? I've had nightmares that were less spooky than this. A real video ephemera gem, worth alone the price of the TV Turkeys tape.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *****. Weirdness: *****+. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: *****.
