Storyline

In 1866 New Mexico, Tom Corbett is a prospector who is called back to his hometown in Laramie Town, Texas at the bequest of a old family friend. Tom arrives in the town to see it under the control of a ruthless and greedy gangster named Jason Scott, who's psychotic and murder-crazed son, Junior Scott, runs it with fear with a posse of thugs who kill anyone who protests their business tactics. Tom finds his brother Jeff, a drunkard looked after by their family maid Mercedes. Tom then tries to persuade Jeff to help him take down the sadistic Scotts so the town can rest easy in peace and harmony again. Written by Matt patay

Essential Spaghetti Western from Lucio Fulci.

"Massacre Time" is one of the most awesome Italian Western films I've seen. It's more violent than the usual fare, as you might expect from the one and only Fulci. He delivers with this one! The plot is simple enough: Franco Nero is a man who is wronged by a ruthless gang. He seeks revenge. Does he get it? Well, you'll have to see to find out. Trust me, you'll be rooting for this dude! It's awesome.

The only thing that sucks about this flick is how hard it is to find. I wonder why they haven't released this one Anchor Bay or something like they did "Four of the Apocalypse." The only version I could find is a Japanese import that is just so-so. The one thing I have to say is that this film must be seen in Italian with English subtitles. The dubbing is not the best.

If you can find it, buy it. As a Spaghetti Western fan, you will not regret it. "Massacre Time" is a must! 8 out of 10, kids.
