Description by

In the dead of night, terrifying, threatening notes are left at the homes of prairie settlers. Cabins are burned, and families murdered in their beds as a secret conspirator seeks to grab the land in Johnson County. Knowing that the settlers are unable to fight against the vicious land sharks, Dr. Kenton offers a novel solution - to appoint a land claims court to settle disputes.

On the association's opening day, the president of the court is assassinated on his way to the courthouse, and the Doctor is blamed for his death. With the town turning against him, Kenton remains dedicated to law and order, and is determined to uncover the identity of the mastermind responsible for the killings.

The Law Commands was directed by veteran William Nigh and starred Western hero Tom Keene, whose final screen appearance was in Edward D. Wood, Jr.'s Plan 9 From Outer Space.

Product Description:

This western finds a bunch of settlers facing some terrifying foes as they try to make a home for themselves. Beset by villainous characters in the dead of night, the settlers encounter murder and countless threats to their lives, then discover that the bunch of miscreants who torment them are intent on possessing the land on which they dwell. An attempt to take the case to court results in further bloodshed when the president of the court is mysteriously murdered, but justice may prevail if they can get the case to go ahead, leading to some nail-biting final moments in this film from director William Nigh.
