One character tells another that Yaqui Indians and Apache Indians are the same tribe, the only difference being that Mexicans call them "Yaquis" and Americans call them "Apaches". That is not true. Yaquis and Apaches are two entirely different tribes and have little in common. The Apaches were fierce, brutal and warlike, regularly attacking American whites, Mexicans and other Indian tribes (including the Yaquis), often simultaneously, and regularly stole horses, rustled herds and kidnapped women and children from other tribes, Mexican villages and US settlements. The Yaquis were a much less aggressive and warlike tribe, existing mainly by subsistence farming and keeping to themselves in the mountains. See more »
Al Adamson! Truly one of the Princes of schlock filming and a true heir to Edward D. Wood Jr.s Throne of cheese! Adamsons films have everything that makes the true crap movie so frightening: Illucid scripts, continuity errors of epic proportions, acting somewhere between barely OK to truly awful, former movie greats fallen into rough times, no budget whatsoever, cameos by the director himself (not in the Hitchcock manner, more in the Ed "Glenn or Glennda" Wood way)... you name it.
Said that, this is one of his less crappy movies (we are talking about Adamson standards here though), mainly because of a really good director of photography (newly immigrated Vilmos Zsigmound, who later would shoot movies like Maverick and Assassins) and a gorgeous background scenery.
But be not fooled! There is still plenty of badness provided, starting with the mind numbing narration by Death himself, reaction shots that don't match either the scene before or after (most often then not not even the time of day!), gratuitous violence of the disturbing kind etc. etc. etc.
Watch out for appearances of B-movie legend John Carradine, the movies own screenwriter Robert Dix, 50s Western staple Victor Adamson and ubiquitous Scott Brady.
To see Adamson at the peak (or rather bottom ) of his art, be sure not to miss the unbelievable "Dracula vs. Frankenstein", a movie that puts Plan 9 to shame! Highly recommended for fans of Adamson is also David Konow's great biography: Schlock-O-Rama: The Films of Al Adamson
