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

Excellent and rare Spaghetti Western!
20 March 2009 | by (The forgotten country of obscure Euro Cult movies) – See all my reviews

Ross Logans brother is beaten up and killed in cold blood by a bandit gang and he (of course) wants revenge. You probably recognize the story but thats about it cause this is one of the strangest Spaghettis I have seen. First of all It is the fact that the anti hero is an astronomer and wears a leopardo poncho. Then we have some strange Mexican peons that is going through the desert to bury their dead people while singing songs. But that doesn't mean It's a bad film. In fact, It's a great film. Aldo Sambrell's bad guy Charlie is by the way way worth mentioning. He's superstitious, he got silver teeth and loves gold.

Another reviewer here said that the director was more interested in Horror movies and Sience Fiction movies and that is seen in the movie but I don't want to spoil anything.

However, good acting, good music and good directing so check out this one!
