Django -- Though Sergio Leone created the spaghetti western with A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, the genre was not popularized in Europe until Sergio Corbucci's DJANGO, which subsequently spawned countless illegitimate sequels.
Django -- Trailer for Django
Django -- A coffin-dragging gunslinger enters a town caught between two feuding factions, the KKK and a gang of Mexican Bandits, and is caught up in a struggle against them.
Django -- Originally banned in several countries, Sergio Corbucci's
groundbreaking bloodfest, DJANGO, is one of the greatest Spaghetti
Westerns ever made, and without a doubt the most influential -
spawning not only dozens of imitations but a new cinema genre: its
everlasting effect seen today as the avowed inspiration behind
Tarantino’s own DJANGO UNCHAINED tribute.
 
The modern action hero began here, with the legendary Franco Nero
(honoured with a cameo accolade in Tarantino’s variation) starring as
Django: the mysterious lone drifter who, dragging a coffin behind him,
arrives in a bleak, mud-drenched town where he ignites a violent feud
between a group of Mexican bandidos and an army of hooded Ku Klux
Klan-like racist murderers.
	
Presented here, complete and uncut, remastered in HD from the fully
restored negative, pristinely faithful to the original look of
Corbucci’s film, this is the most definitive version of DJANGO.
Unequalled.

Mystical central figure, 31 March 1999
Author: Stefan Kahrs from Canterbury, England

At least in Europe, this other spaghetti western variation of Kurosawa's Yojimbo was probably even more influential than the film that created the genre, A Fistful of Dollars, with countless imitations, rip-offs, sequels, remakes. The title hero is again very different from traditional Western heroes, but this time he is a much more mystical (almost religious) figure than even the man with no name, and the places he goes to are even dirtier and more desperate and downtrodden than any place we would find in a Leone Western.

The impressive opening sequence shows Django dragging a coffin behind him through a muddy and featureless landscape, accompanied by Bacalov's title song (not Morricone, for a change), heading for his first battle. The coffin, his dark coat, and the mystique around him make him appear like an angel of death, invoking associations with the Red Death character in Roger Corman's Masque of the Red Death. Django is not quite as untouchable and supernatural, but the body count in his trace is comparable.
