What is "No Rest For The Wicked"?

"NO REST FOR THE WICKED" will be a at least a 30 minute Horror Western short filmed in Oklahoma. Set In the old west, two desperadoes Wylie and Callie set out to find a little something for an old friend in exchange for a place to lay low. They target a big landowner and his daughter in hopes they would have lots of cash lying around. What they find is gold and two land deeds. While planning their future, things quickly go wrong for them and in the end, justice at the hands of their own evil deeds.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION:

  • The period would not be complete without a Ranch and a Wild West Town. The film will be shot at various locationa including Buzzard Roost Ranch in Dustin, OK. This place is awesome and is also a Christmas Tree Farm! Also check out their NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION at Medicine Rock. It's a non-profit organization For Disabled Veterans and youth from under-served communities, dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals through a variety of outdoor programs such as hunting and fishing.

    We'll also be shooting at Sipokni West in southern Oklahoma. Johnny Shakleford has created an entire movie set western town complete with a saloon, blacksmith, hotels and many other buildings that perfectly reflect the look of a true western town in the 1880's. Oh, did I mention the steaks there are the best!!
