24-years after watching this film in a cinema - this film still hasn't lost its touch. Who imagines a Sheriff beating criminals down with a whip? This film features fanned blood-spatters without showing the graphic details accompanied with elaborate special-effects make-up budgets.
This movie was released during a time when American culture was pushing the glam of punk rock rebellion. Watching this cult classic is like watching the rock bands Poison and Motley Crue fight side-by-side on crotch-rockets and swinging bats and chains through the air.
Inspiration for this film appears to have derived from combinations of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Indiana Jones", "Scarface", "Friday the 13th", "300" and "Walker, Texas Ranger". You don't even have to know Spanish to watch this film and understand what's happening. Chances are likely that you'll walk away from this film - feeling like "cracking a whip" on someone.
