Bone Tomahawk

While a western, this movie could easily be adapted to the ASSH setting.

Basic premise is that there is a group of Native Americans who are  are shunned and reviled by all other Native American tribes living near them due to unholy practices. The nasty bunch raid a nearby town of settlers taking a hostage and horses. Some town folk ride after them and discover why the tribe is shunned.

Kurt Russel stars as the town sheriff which is a role that suits him well given the other westerns he has done.

Re: Bone Tomahawk

Sounds a little like one of REH's horror yarns!

Re: Bone Tomahawk

It certainly has a REH western vibe to it. Probably why I liked it.

Re: Bone Tomahawk

Fantastic flick, agreed. Slow burn western/horror.

Re: Bone Tomahawk

Just watched this tonight.  Pretty awesome and I don't even like Westerns.  But the premise is perfect for AS&SH.

Weird stuff! I enjoyed this as much the second time.

Re: Bone Tomahawk

I think westerns, especially the ultra-violent Italian westerns, are great fodder for games like AS&SH. The setting is a vast, lawless frontier, the settlements are rarely bigger than a town or village on the brink, and the protagonists are usually self-interested, grey-ethic wanderers. The heroes of one town may be wanted men a few miles away. Just like your typical adventuring party.

Re: Bone Tomahawk

If that tribe isn't direct descendants of Vhuurmis then I'm in the wrong game!!!
