Samurai and Cowboy Werewolves

I have a little pet fantasy, it is mixing horror with westerns. Why these two popular genre of pop culture haven't been combined more often is a mystery to me.

Samurai films and cowboy movies seem to have a lot in common. Tonight I watched a samurai werewolf film from 2004, Kibakichi. It isn't a great film; but it did have the feel of what a hybrid horror/western film might be like.

Watching the movie gave me the idea to Google "cowboy werewolf," and I came up with this graphic novel, "Strangeways: Murder Moon." I'm happy to see that there are others out there with the same fantasies that I have.
