A wagon load of convicts on their way to prison is being escorted through the mountains by a cavalry troop. They are attacked by a bandit gang, and only a sergeant, his beautiful young daughter and an assortment of seven sadistic, murderous prisoners survive, and they are left without horses or a wagon. The sergeant must find a way to get his prisoners to their destination while protecting his daughter, watching out for the still pursuing bandits and trying to determine which one of the prisoners was the man who raped and murdered his wife.

Spain is a country that isn't known for his flicks but now and then they have made flicks that people still are talking about. Cut Throat Nine is one of them. It even became a cult exploitation flick that they have decided to remake in 2011, and not with some B-actors but with Harvey Keitel and Mads Mikkelsen (Walhalla Rising). It was made in 1972, an era were the western genre was extreme popular and had some blockbusters like Once Upon A Time In The West and The Good The Bad And The Ugly. But all those classic were made in Italy (spaghetti western). Naturally other countries would like to earn some Yankee dollars too with making a good western.
Cut Throats Nine wasn't that good old western but it became famous due the gore used in it, a thing that wasn't done. Back then westerns only had some shootings and hangings or scalping of-camera. And even the actors weren't well known faces for the viewers. But it was released in the exploitation genre and in drive-ins and grindhouses and people started talking about it. If you watch it nowadays than it isn't that gory at all but for people not used to horror and only want to see a western I can understand that some will be offended. Some shots are indeed not for the squeamish. I can't wait to see the remake how they will do the chopping of feet, machete's going into bellies until the intestines fell out, stabbing, throat slicing, burning people, rape with nudity...Back then people were shocked when they saw it just like they did with Cannibal Holocaust. And with the gore in it it doesn't was comic or anything else, just straight in your face. Strangely it still hasn't seen a digital restoration and it's available on DVD but with the bad sound and scratches on the reel just like you should see it at a grindhouse.
