Help me identify a movie

I'm trying to remember the name of a film I saw back in the early '90s. It was a low-budget direct-to-video phantasmagoric film about some kids that go to a ghost town and pass through to another dimension back to when the town was populated. I believe it was an old west town. I think it was a brother and sister and they went looking for their missing parents. I'm pretty sure the town was possessed by an evil spirit and that was the source of the alternating time. It was a horror film. Anybody know this one?

Phantom Town (1998)?

Plot: Mike, Arnie and Cindy Reeves are throwing a party while their parents are away. They receive a phone call from their parents on their way home – but the phone goes dead as the parents enter the small desert town of Long Hand. The parents fail to return that night and so the children decide they must go searching for them. A mysterious Indian warns them away from Long Hand, saying that it is inhabited by the dead and can only be entered in a dream. Inside the town the children find the inhabitants believing and behaving as though it was 1882. As they try to find their parents, they realize the town is a living thing that wants to trap them there. The town’s denizens try to get them to make a promise, which will cause them to become one of the enslaved undead.

That's got to be it. Strange, though, I could swear I saw it years earlier. I guess my memory is failing me.
