Alternate Versions

THe original Italian version of this film has a precredits explanatory scene: the betrayal of the confederates, and their subsequent massacre. For the English dubbed export version, this flashback was moved later in the film, and this is the version of the film available on DVD in America (from VCI) and on VHS in the UK (from Aktiv). The Italian DVD release contains the original Italian version of the film, with the flashback positioned before the credits as the filmmakers intended. See more »

Creepy Spaghetti Western
20 March 2000 | by noahaxSee all my reviews

This unusual horror film is one of the best examples of the spaghetti western genre. The plot is the standard "lone stranger seeking revenge," but in this instance, it's not clear if the stranger is a man or just a ghost. This aspect of the story, which is heightened by spooky music and scenes in fog-filled cemeteries, really sets this film apart.

The soundtrack is also excellent, with lots of distorted guitars and sci-fi organ music.
