I usually like just about anything with Guy Pearce but this was the exception. It just seemed to muddle along. The was no economic story telling and a confused genre thing going on. I didn't know whether I was supposed to be watching a story about a strong woman in the brutal west or a horror slasher flick with an evil preacher as the the bad guy; then it turned into a semi-adult entertainment.
I just couldn't get into this one.

Dark and disturbing movie, but very well acted, very well written. The Christian right will down vote this movie - it's not a message they want to hear about their people of the cloth.

This film was demented. Its themes were sadistic and morally twisted beyond measure: incest, mental cruelty, gory partial birth abortion (they couldn't stop with a human one but had to do it to animals too), mutilation, whipping, burning, and a predatory monster who prays in the name of Jesus, twisting Bible verses out of context to justify his over the top, psychopathic cravings. It never stops. There is no respite, there are no redeeming qualities. My recommendation is to leave this one alone.

This movie is bound to have a very polarized audience. It's also one of those movies that you will love it and hate it at the same time too! It tells a story where one man in the name of God is doing a horrible things. Plot line is very interesting as well, acting is superb, photography amazing, but execution was below par. Personally I liked it, but I wish it was more logical in execution.

Brutal, demonic, and violent movie. Very disturbed. Don't recommend it!

Good movie (gripping, cross-genre Dark Western Drama) but one of the cast interviews made me realize that some people are going to believe that the stuff the preacher spews is actually either in the bible (some, admittedly, is) or in context (like that he's entitled to replace his wife in the manner in which he tries). So, watch the movie, sure, but treat it as a treatise on Christianity - maybe not so much please!

This movie is proof that it is silly to be afraid of zombies, werewolves and vampires. The only beings worth fearing are the human kind. It is rare to run across a movie this dark and disturbing. The psycho pervert preacher is, of course, the lead morbid personality whose vile acts chill the blood. While this isn't a slasher gore type of horror movie, it is interesting to realize the amplification of horror is realized in the deeds left undone. After seeing Brimstone I seriously wished I had a Three Stooges DVD to watch. A few laughs would have been nice.
