‘Organ Trail’ Review: A Blood Soaked Western

Abigale and her family fall victim to a gang of ruthless cowboys while making their way across the Oregon Trail. As the only survivor, she does whatever it takes to retrieve her family’s horse from the clutches of the bloodthirsty bandits.


Organ Trail is a Western that takes you back to a time when Westerns were all about revenge and bloodshed. The film itself is a great action packed thrill ride, the direction from Michael Patrick Jann is great it never misses a beat. Meg Turner’s script is also tight as it never allows you to take a break and breathe from the next action sequence to the next. We also don’t get many Western’s that has an horror element to them so kudos to Meg and Michael for Organ Trail.

The acting is genuinely exceptional especially from the young Zoé De Grand Maison who captivated her role as Abigale so well you’ll forget how young she is. Nicolas Logan is a showstopper as a menacing Rhys with his actions and his voice inflections help us understand the situations intensity, as well as Michael Abbott Jr. Dominating the screen as Brody with the delivery of his lines and the facial expressions make you believe everything he says. Organ Trail easily could have been a run of the mill typical Western that wouldn’t have staying power.

However, after watching it, it’s still sticking with me a week after the original viewing. That is solely because how well everything is done in the movie from the directing, script, acting, and cinematography as the locations are magnificent to look at in Organ Trail. If you’re a fan of old school Westerns I’d highly suggest you seek out Organ Trail as it is a treat to behold.

Overall Grade: 4.5/5 Stars
