Storyline

A gang of gunrunners is sought by both the Mexican Federales and the Yaqui Indians for different reasons - by the federal police to prevent the marauding tribes from preying on innocent farmers and by the Indians because the gunrunners' leader sold them bad medicine resulting in blindness for many of their children. The police capture the criminals, but both parties are surrounded in a ruined mission by the angry Indians. Can the cops and crooks work together to survive the onslaught of the tribesmen?

unusual story and a great actress, OK western
30 November 2009 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Massacre was made by Lippert, in their search for keeping costs down, they ended up in Guatemala. Lippert was staying at the government palace when there was a military coup and he had to run away leaving the equipment behind. So he ended up doing Massacre in Mexico where they changed the script frequently according to what was convenient. It is amazing they were able to make an entertaining film, mainly by staying out of a conventional western story. A seductive woman together with some men, surrounded and desperate, has been the theme of many films, but most of them were made after this one. Massacre has a superb actress, Martha Roth who seems to be popular in Mexico, even today. The film was made in color, but looks like those colorized by computer. According to Lippert Jr. it was a very profitable enterprise, which shows how well you can do when you are creative.
