One star (R)
In 1857, paranoid Mormons organized the slaughter of 120 people in a wagon train passing through their turf in Utah. The writers of this astonishingly bad movie apparently decided the facts weren’t dramatic enough, so they jazz up the real events with a cheesy Romeo and Juliet tragic romance. One of the worst movies of the year. 110 minutes.
DVD INFO: Includes two featurettes: “True Events: A Historical Perspective” and “Descendants: Remembering the Tragedy.”
