If you're a spaghetti western fan, it's okay
19 October 2015 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

"And The Crows Will Dig Your Grave" has one of the best spaghetti western titles ever in the history of the genre, and was the main reason why I decided to give it a spin in my DVD player. The movie was okay, but it doesn't live up to its title. For the most part, it moves slower than your average spaghetti western, with a minimum of plot that is repeated over and over again until reaching the climatic action sequence. Speaking of action, that climatic action sequence is the only scene that could be considered an "action sequence". The few moments of action before that point at the most only last a few seconds!

But the movie does have some pleasures that help make it an okay viewing experience. It's a slow movie, but not boring. For one thing, under the direction of Juan Bosch, the movie does have some atmosphere, with a somewhat downbeat and cynical edge that has bite. The musical score by Bruno Nicolai is pretty good. And it's always a treat to see Fernando Sancho in a spaghetti western; his greasy bad guys are great fun to watch. This movie is far from a spaghetti western classic, but it's okay for fans of the genre.
