Synopsis

Cowboy Gastón and his sidekick Coyote Loco stop at an eerie ranch to learn more of about a stone figure they've unearthed that depicts a crying woman. The ranch's odd, off-kilter residents tell them that the statue, and another one just like it, was created by a now-dead woman whose ghost has been sighted by local villagers … crying. Gastón and Coyote Loco are pulled into an action-packed, spine-tingling web of supernatural spookery and desperados out to unearth a secret vein of gold. Along the way, they cross Skeleton Swamp and bodies pile up while, somehow, coffins keep disappearing.
