In 1700s Austria, a witch-hunter's apprentice has doubts about the righteousness of witch-hunting when he witnesses the brutality, the injustice, the falsehood, the torture and the arbitrary killing that go with the job.

The scene where the two plain-clothes cops are taking Ramrod to the precinct for booking of Ginger's murder. Ramrod manages to overpower them and causes Mendez(Pepe Serna) the cop driving to crash. We see the car crash from a side vantage point, then we see it crash from a head-on position. It is the same crash filmed from two different angles using two cameras. In a bit of economizing the filmmakers get two separate shots of the same crash so as not to have to set up twice for a matching crash shot. See more »

Wings Hauser, playing brutal pimp Ramrod, uses a wire coat hanger to beat the stuffing out of a hooker in a Hollywood Boulevard motel room. This scene, destined to be remembered by every lucky viewer of this solid, sleazy classic, perfectly captures the tone director Gary Sherman brings to this fine piece of entertainment.
The violence is glossy and sadistic and shot in neon-toned hues by ace cinematographer John Alcott.
Hauser goes on a rampage in an effort to bust the chops of a street girl who was partially responsible for his brief arrest.
The tension is thick, the atmosphere gritty, the entertainment values high.
Nail-biting and stomach-churning...in other words: heaven.
