Storyline

(1968) Lang Jeffries, Fernando Sancho, Femi Benussi, Carlos Gaddi. A unique Euro-western with the hero as an astrologist who wears a leopard suit. Sure, theres a revenge theme, but overall this is a different brand of spaghetti. Its very moody and feels like a Euro-horror film in spots. Aka Requeim for a Gringo Color, 16mm Written by Anonymous

Offbeat Paella-Spaghetti Western co-produced between Spain and Italy
14 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

The band of the nasty Mexican named Porfirio Carranza (Fernando Sancho) and his bandits trespass the frontier and occupy a mansion . Our hero named Logan (Lang Jeffries who married Rhonda Fleming) is a bounty hunter who wears a leopard poncho and riding on a mule . He returns his ranch and seeks vengeance against Carranza's hoodlums who kill , mistreat countrymen and lash a young (Sancho Gracia). Logan confronts underlings and it is narrated by means of three flashbacks in which take place three showdowns against the mestizo Aldo Sambrell , the dreary gunfighter dressed in black played by Carlo Gaddi and the elegant Ruben Rojo who double-crosses his chief with the Eurobabe Femi Benussi . Meanwhile Carranza hanging villagers and putting a cartel of warning in Spanish language saying : ¨ SI ALARGAS LAS OREJAS PUEDES ALARGAR EL CUELLO¨ . Logan has a special date for his bloody vendetta , April 17, 1867 , when takes place a sun eclipse .

It's an exciting western with breathtaking gun-play between the protagonist Lang Jeffries against the heartless Fernando Sancho and his hoodlums . Lang is fine, he ravages the screen, shoots, hit and run and kills . In the film premiere attained bit success , nowadays is best valued and I think it turns out to be a good Spaghetti Western. Aldo Sambrell and Carlo Gaddi as two cruelly baddie roles are terrific, they bears a hysterical and mocking aspect , subsequently they would play similar characters . The film packs violence , shootouts , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shoot'em up or stunts every few minutes. Good production design creating an excellent scenario with luminous outdoors, dirty and rocky landscapes under a glimmer sun and a fine set on the manor . The musician Angelo Francesco Lavagnino composes a nice soundtrack and well conducted ; it's full of strange sounds and haunting musical background . Striking cinematography by Mario Pacheco who reflects a colorful eclipse and barrens exteriors from Almeria . Outdoor sequences filmed at Spanish places located on Colmenar Viejo, and of course Almeria. The movie gets the usual Western issues, such as avengers antiheroes , violent facing off , quick zooms, exaggerated baddies, soundtrack with Morricone influence , among them . Appears as secondaries the habitual in Spanish/Italian Western such as Aldo Sambrell ( Sergio Leone's usual) , Angel Alvarez (Django) , Ruben Rojo , Sancho Gracia (800 bullets) and a future prestigious actress Marisa Paredes (Almodovar's habitual) . Special mention to Fernando Sancho in his ordinary role as fatty Mexican bandit . This motion picture produced by Sergio Newman is professionally directed by Jose Luis Merino and Eugenio Martin or Gene Martin . Jose Luis Merino made some Western ( More dollars for the MacGregor, Kitosch the man who came from the north ) and horror movies ( Terror of the living dead , Scream of the demon lover ). And Eugenio Martin is a horror movies expert ( Hypnosis, A candle for the devil , The fourth Mrs Anderson ) and Spaghetti Western ( Pancho Villa , The ugly ones , Bad man's river ). Rating : Acceptable and passable Spaghetti Western , well worth watching .
