Apache Drums 1951 Stephen McNally Action Adventure
Stars: Stephen McNally, Coleen Gray, Willard Parker
Apache Drums is an excellent B-Western. A gambler is thrown out of a western town, but returns when the town is suddenly threatened by a band of marauding Apaches. Outside one can hear the Apache drums and chants. The light from the burning town flickers on the walls. Indians appear at the windows from time to time like fun-house pop-ups. It’s a nightmare situation mined for all its possibilities.
Val Lewton’s expertise in building tension and providing visual shocks (from his many horror films) is clearly in evidence. This is especially seen in the climactic attack on a church.
Apache Drums bring actual human feelings and and what people went through in times of turmoil such as this film suggests.
