"Weird West is used to describe a combination of the Western with another genre, usually horror, occult, or fantasy. Examples of these cross-genres include Deadlands (Western/horror), Wild Wild West (Western/steampunk), Jonah Hex (Western/superhero), Firefly (Western/space opera), BraveStarr (Western/science fiction) and many others. In movies, notable Weird West stories include The Valley of Gwangi (1969) which used special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen's talents to pit cowboys against dinosaurs. Billy the Kid vs. Dracula (1966) saw the legendary outlaw Billy the Kid fighting against the notorious vampire. The same year, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter paired another famous outlaw with another fictional horror character. The Ghoul Goes West was an unproduced Edward D. Wood, Jr. film to star Bela Lugosi as Dracula in the Old West."
