Taking the identity of a dead postal inspector found on the trail, a stranger rides into a small western town and finds himself in the middle of a stagecoach robbery perpetrated by a gang of twenty ruthless desperados.

Another Tony Anthony Film
28 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Enjoyed the first film with Tony Anthony, "A Strange in Town" and this film is quite similar except there are women being raped and one shot dead while trying to hang out her laundry. There are a whole gang of laughing bandits who simply love to tease, torture and kill in cold blood. The Strange meets up with a rather crazy preacher who has all kinds of secrets to help the Stranger fight off this gang of bandits who are after a gold shipment and the Stranger assumes the identify of a murdered postal inspector. The Stranger is captured and given a good beating and was pulled by a rope behind a stagecoach and was then kicked and punched in the face constantly. The music in this picture added a great deal of sound effects throughout the entire film and I must say some of the gals in this picture were very good looking and sexy.
