Spaghetti without balls…
25 April 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

This is only the third film I've seen from director Giuliano Carnimeo, but he definitely already ranks as one of the most versatile cult-filmmakers of Italy. The three films couldn't be more different in tone and content! "Ratman" is a repulsive, ultra-sadistic and sleaze-filled 80's horror flick about a medical experiment gone bad, "The Case of the Bloody Iris" stands as one of the most stylish and convoluted Giallo mysteries of the 70's and then this "Find to Place to Die" is a traditional spaghetti western that came out during the highlight-years of the genre. This is a competently scripted and well-made Western effort, but the story is too routine and forgettable to be counted among the best in its kind. I honestly have to admit I especially purchased this film because the tagline on the DVD-cover sounded so utterly cool. "They followed her for the gold and her body… But they didn't get the gold". Promising concept, but not exactly accurate. The story indeed centers on an attractive woman who, along with her husband, discovered a goldmine near the Texan-Mexican border, but there's very little sleaze & raping going on. When her husband is badly wounded by a gang of gold-greedy bandits, the woman undertakes a dangerous journey to the nearest town to find help. When she mentions the goldmine, she immediately finds a handful of man willing to join her. Among them are a banished confederate soldier, a bloodthirsty priest and a several random gunslingers with an unhealthy interest in money and power. "Find a Place to Die" contains all the basic plot-ingredients of a solid spaghetti-western, but it's incredibly slow-paced and even the gunfights appear to be tedious. Especially the entire middle-section is painfully soporific and only contains sappy dialogs and redundant sub plot. The final gunfight is pretty cool (and lasts exceptionally long), but I think something went wrong with the editing, as the showdown between the heroic Joe Collins and the traitorous main villain happens off-screen. The filming locations are convincing and atmospheric and the acting performances are adequate. The music isn't very impressive and someone should have paid more attention to the continuity.
