Gunman’s Walk, Land Raiders & A Man Called Sledge

30 December 2015 10:38 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Germany's Explosive Media company has a serious itch for American westerns, and they have a trio of new releases. One is a minor Hollywood classic with major graces, from the late 1950s.
