The Legend of Israel Grimm

In 1875, a trio of outlaws learns there are worse fates than being abandoned in chains during the harsh winter of the Nebraska prairie. Anderson, McKay and Jones are starving, freezing and at each other’s throats – and that’s before they realize they are being pursued by a mysterious dark rider. Are the legends true? Could this relentless spectre be the one that doomed men call Israel Grimm?

The Legend of Israel Grimm is a short film written and directed by Michael Johnson which premiered at the 2012 Omaha Film Festival. It is currently available to watch on Vimeo. DVDs will be available soon.
