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.

It's a smart thing to do when you know that death is coming for you. How come you haven't you got your burial suit with you? We'll have to leave you to the vultures! So now, begin your prayer...

S10 Reviews: Django (1966), 14 August 2005
Author: suspiria10 from The Void

Django (Franco Nero – The Fifth Cord, Hitch-Hike) is a gristled man-of-action who strolls the desert dragging his coffin of hell behind him. Django sets up shop one day at the local whorehouse of a veritable ghost town set up between the two warring factions of Major Jackson (Eduardo Fajardo – Nightmare City, Oasis of the Zombies) with his red hooded militia and General Hugo (José Bódalo – Companeros) with his Mexican ex-patriots. Django's no nonsense style quickly puts him smack in the middle of the fun as secrets are revealed and sides are played against each other.

Sergio Corbucci (Super Fuzz) directs this classic Italian spaghetti western. The script (while being pretty typical of the genre) manages to make Django a classic antihero thanks for the most part to Franco Nero's portrayal. The script's lack of originality doesn't stop it from having some clever set-pieces, nasty violence and even a bit of dark humor (some of my favorite sequences: the clearing of the whorehouse "Don't Touch my coffin", the "ear" scene and the Mexican skeet shoot). The music is wonderful (topped of by a fun theme song sung by someone trying to channel Elvis). The cast of Italian regulars nail their parts with mucho gusto. Any fan of violent westerns Italiano-style should belly up to the bar and give Django's coffin of wonders a watch. But don't mess with it…
