Waiting for minimum critic reviews


An angel of God who can't remember his purpose. Two legendary lovers. Three strangers unite, battling one another and the ancient menace one carries unknowingly on her back into the West Texas arroyo. Their bond and covenant takes them from the flying saucers of Marfa to the vampire temptress of San Antonio, and then clear across mythical 1893 Texas to their fiery end. ARROYO--not your grandfather's sort of western.
