For a cowboy movie that’s set in the small town of Rosewood Texas during the 1870’s, “The Magnificent Dead” gives you a rather original take of classic western. Trouble begins when a local rancher, Jared Hamilton (David Lampe) wages war against the town. He uses fear and death to threaten the townsfolk and to prevent a new railroad line from coming through. The residents of Rosewood, guided by the leadership of Father Julian (Joseph Fontinos), in their desperation to protect their town, make a deadly decision of hiring a group of six gunmen who turn out to do more harm than good.
