Eminence Hill (2019)

When a gang of outlaws attacks a small homestead in the middle of nowhere, killing a husband and wife before kidnapping their teenage daughter, the law has to come down hard on them. After the criminals get lost, they find their way to Eminence Hill, a town run by a group of deeply religious men and women.

Welcome to, well, Eminence Hill, which is directed by Robert Conway, who has directed three different Krampus themed films: Krampus: The ReckoningKrampus Unleashed and Krampus Origins.

This movie is packed with stars. There’s Barry Corbin, Harv from Critters 2 and perhaps better known to normal folks for being in No Country for Old Men. Dominique Swain, who was in the 1997 version of Lolita and Face/Off, as well as recently reviewed films like Blood Craft and The 6th Friend. Even Brinke Stevens shows up!

Probably the name that will get most people looking for this movie is Lance Henriksen, whose resume contains such stand-outs as Hard TargetAliensNear DarkPumpkinheadStone Cold and many, many more.

He’s only in it for a few moments, but come on. If you’re reading this site, you know all manner of films that relied on that one name to get the movie made and sold, an actor who barely shows up in the actual film.

If you’re looking for a modern take on a western, Eminence Hill is available on demand and on DVD from Uncork’d Entertainment.

DISCLAIMER: This movie was sent to us by its PR department but that has no impact on our review.

One thought on “Eminence Hill (2019)

  1. The story Eminence Hill (2019) takes on some grimmer aspects in the later going when the Eminence folks deal with gang member Cyrus (Louie Iaccarino) via the slasher/gore route, and when Noah’s cook Wilhelmina (Brinke Stevens) decides to deal with Ruth with some well aimed stones to the head. You sure didn’t want to get on the wrong side of these pious, church folk.
