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.

Paint your wagon....RED WITH BLOOD!, 11 July 2005
Author: Coventry from the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls

Sergio Corbucci's "Django", as well as his "The Great Silence" are two massively underrated spaghetti-westerns that co-founded the genre, along with Sergio Leone's Dollars-trilogy. Okay, this no "Once Upon a Time in the West" when it comes to atmosphere or plotting, but it is a magnificently mounted action ride with an utterly cool lead hero and an enormous body count. "Django" remained banned in several countries for a long time because of its explicit, comic-book like violence, and you'll see that this wasn't without reason, as the bad guys get slaughtered by the dozen in a good old-fashioned gunslinger way. The movie opens terrifically, with a sleazy title song and vicious images of a lonely cowboy wandering through the Southern wastelands with a coffin in tow. The man is Django and his coffin contains whatever he requires to fulfill his difficult goal: single-handedly finishing the war between the racist Major Jackson and Mexican bandidos by annihilating them all. Corbucci implements a straightforward, no-nonsense filming style with some great visuals and very creative camera angles. There are some ingenious aspects (Django's act of vengeance with molested hands) as well as some delicious clichés moments (wrestling prostitutes, extended bar fight sequences...). This film may not be a very intellectual form of entertainment, but it sure is fun and produced with a certain degree of class.

Followed by a numberless amount of sequels, rip-offs and wannabes that are hardly worth purchasing. Stick to the original and have a blast!
