The West is, if you think about it, a logical choice for this treatment. The frontier as a whole was traditionally viewed (and still is viewed, to some extent) as [[LiminalTime the meeting place of civilization and the unknown]]. The lawless setting also meant plenty of violent deaths and unfinished business, [[GhostlyGoals fuel for ghostly tales]]. The MagicalNativeAmerican cliché also tends to show up here, for obvious reasons.
