According to the actors and director, the producers decided to release the movie in countries outside Italy as "Django, Kill!" as a way to take advantage of the success of a prior release, Django (1966) starring Franco Nero. In reality, "Django" had nothing to do with "Se sei Vivo Spara." See more »

Giulio Questi's "Se Sei Vivo Spara" aka. "Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot!" of 1967 is a great and very violent Spaghetti Western, and easily one of the genre's most twisted films.
After The Stranger (played by the great Tomas Milian) is double crossed by his fellow bandits, he seeks revenge, and comes to a little town inhabited by folks who are anything but hospitable towards strangers. But not only are the towns inhabitants slightly psychopathic leisure time vigilantes with a strong fondness for lynchings and ultra violence, the area is also tyrannized by a sleazy fat landowner and his gang of gay cowboys.
Rightly a cult flick, "Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot!" is a great mixture of Horror Exploitation and Spaghetti Western, coming along with a great theme song by Ivan Vandor. The violence in this film is very graphical - lynchings, torture, mutilation, and a scalping, "Django Kill" got it all. And the movie is pretty surreal. Right in the beginning of the movie, Tomas Milian is crawling out of a mass grave, and saved by two Indians who make him bullets out of gold. Furthermore the movie has some other very bizarre elements, like a guy who rests his feet on a child, or a talking parrot for example.
The acting is very good, especially Tomas Milian's performance is great (as always), the supporting cast includes Piero Lulli, and I also thought that Roberto Carmadiel, who plays the villainous landowner Mr. Sorrow did a great job. The cinematography and the locations are great, and so is the theme song, which I can't get out of my head.
Like many other movies with Django in their title, "Django Kill, If You Live, Shoot!" has little to nothing to do with Sergio Corbucci's 1966 masterpiece "Django", however it is one of the best of these movies. Furthermore, this is not actually a Django movie, since it doesn't originally have the name Django in its title. "Se Sei Vivo Spara" was just given its Django-name in German and English, due to the success of Corbucci's masterpiece. If I counted this as a Django movie, however, I would have to say that this is my second favorite after the original.
A great, gory and surreal film, "Se Sei Vivo Spara" is a must-see for us fans of Spaghetti Westerns and Tomas Milian. 9/10
