Offbeat Western comedy with a hero named Cemetery who looks exactly like Sartana
15 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Camposanto is an entertaining SW with lots of action, gun-play and fun ; however is slightly mediocre . This time the new hero is named Camposanto o Cemetery ( John Garco ) who looks exactly like Sartana , he is a tidy and rapid gunfighter . Camposanto protects a young pair of brothers , sons of a baron land whom is blackmailing some hoodlums (Ivano Staccioli). Cemetery join forces with Duke ( Austrian actor resident in Italy named William Berger who played several Western and unforgettable co-starring in ¨Sabata¨ as the banjo man) , another blond and long-haired gunslinger against nasties who are suborning cattlemen . The dark,elegant hero, a freelance gunman, named Camposanto ( Gianni Garco or John Garco) appears to chase the nasty gunfighter and discovers the rackets and killings . The confrontation will be inevitable between the town's despots , a cruel murderous and of course Sartana .

This first movie on Camposanto character starred by Gianni Garco is plenty of action, shootouts, tongue in check , double-crosses, twists and loads of violence . Camposanto is another hero of second class in the S.W. genre as Sabata (Lee Van Cleef ), Sartana (Gianni Garco ) or Providence ( Tomas Milian ). Cemetery character bears remarkable resemblance to Sartana . Giuliano Carmineo , alias Anthony Ascott, directed various Sartana with George Hilton who replaces to Gianni Garco , as Hilton played more natural and roguish than Garco who was cold and peculiar .This entertaining picture gets the humorous remarks from Western parody combined to features of Spaghetti . The movie gets the usual Italian Western issues, such as greedy antiheroes , violent facing off , quick zooms, exaggerated baddies, among them . It appears secondary actors who are habitual in Italian Western and Peplum genre , such as Nello Pazzafini , Ivano Staccioli and Rick Boyd . Special mention to androgynous Franco Ressel , Spaghetti's customary as powerful tyrant . Enjoyable musical score by Bruno Nicolai, Ennio Morricone, usual collaborator , full of guttural sounds and whistles . Average cinematography by habitual Stelvio Massi and atmospheric set decoration by Carlo Leva . The picture is regularly directed by Giuliano Carmineo or Anthony Scott , subsequently he directed another Spaghetti-hero named Sabata with Gianni Garco in the title role . Camposanto is clearly inferior to his entries in Sartana series .
