Storyline

Following the Civil War, Confederate Captain Justice Cain has retired to a quiet life with his young son and black wife. However, the men of his old outfit, known as Cain's Cutthroats, have turned to lives of murder, torture and robbery. They attempt to convince Cain to ride with them once more. He refuses, and the Cutthroats murder his family. Swearing vengeance, Cain teams up with a colorful preacher/bounty hunter, and hunts down his family's killers one at a time.

Trivia

The film was belatedly (and incorrectly) branded a former UK 'video nasty' following its inclusion in the 2000 book on banned UK horror films "See No Evil". In fact the film had never been prosecuted or listed as a video nasty during the 1980's. See more »

Quotes

Preacher Simms: Oh, excuse me, I didn't introduce myself. Sims, Preacher Sims, Servant of the Lord.
Justice Cain: A preacher, huh? With wanted posters?
Preacher Simms: Well, not ordained exactly, but close to it... sort of called to the cloth.
Justice Cain: Why the wanted posters?
Preacher Simms: Well, I sort of mix vocations - a shepherd of the flock... a hunter of men

Billy Joe Was A Bastard-Of-A-Crybaby!
19 October 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Yes. There are some Westerns out there that I find so bad that (hey!) they're actually good.

And then, there are other Westerns out there (just like Cain's Cut-Throats, in fact) that I find so bad that (p.u.!) they stink like a freshly dumped load of pure you-know-what.

This ugly, cheap, grubby Cowboy tale (from 1971), about rape, revenge and religious hypocrisy, certainly scraped the absolute bottom of the barrel when it came to its cheesy story, its z-grade production values, and its pathetic performances by one and all of its cast members.

Cain's Cut-Throats was such lousy Western junk that it had this viewer literally hating all of its characters with an angry passion, regardless of what side of the law that they were supposed to be riding on.

Of course, as a means of spicing up the story and attempting to appeal to all of the hot-blooded males in the audience, Cain's Cut-Throats underhandedly inserted some gratuitous female nudity into a number of key scenes. But this film's story was just too cruel-minded and sadistic in nature for a pair of ripe boobs to make any difference, one way or the other.

In a nutshell - DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS RUBBISH!
