Bad Luck Gun...
Dead Man's Gun was a Weird West anthology series that aired on Showtime between 1997 and 1999. Kind of a Tales from the Crypt in the Old West. The premise is an interesting one....A cursed pistol is lost by its owner (A man known only as Mr. Smith) and found by various people through out the series. Each episode tells the story of the person who finds the gun and how it winds up destroying their life in the end.
I never saw the show, and it hasn't been released on DVD yet, but there are websites dedicated to selling ripped copies of the entire series (some for as low as 20 bucks....and others as high as 90! Yowza!) In a few weeks I am planning on getting my hands on one of these (cheaper) sets....and when I do, Ill post a review. Until then, check out the only 2 clips Ive been able to find on Youtube:
1. In this first clip, a shady Hypnotist gets all unethical:
2. The Shady Hypnotist gets his comeuppance when he crosses the lady who carries...The Dead Man's Gun...(Warning, this one is a little creepy...)
