An incredibly languid spaghetti western, Dead Men Don't Make Shadows goes on for about forty minutes before a plot begins to materialize. When it does, there's still elements that make little sense.
Technically, it's well made and atmospheric. Sets, costumes, photography, and direction are all adequate. The story is just too spare and too typical to be satisfying. I wanted to like this more than I ultimately did.
Director of photography Aristide Massaccesi, who also acted in it as well, is better known as the infamous Joe D'Amato, great director of countless seedy sex and gory horror films from the seventies to the nineties.
