'The Burrowers' — the horror western

Writer-director J.T. Petty gained a cult following with this creepy thriller about a group of cowboys searching for the missing members of a family of Dakota Territory pioneers. They discover a race of creatures that first drugs its victims and buries them alive before consuming them.
