Storyline

After 10 years in prison, a man who was betrayed by his ex-lover and framed-up by his ex-partner seeks vengeance despite the fact that his former partner, now rich and influential, employs a small army of henchmen. Former Confederate officer Gary Hamilton has served 10 years in a hard-labor prison for a robbery that took place in the final days of the Civil War. A transport of Confederate gold was robbed by Acombar who then left Gary Hamilton's water-flask at the scene, in an effort to incriminate him. However, Gary Hamilton had an alibi as he was at his girlfriend's house that day. Nevertheless, during the trial, his girlfriend, Maria, corrupted by Acombar's promises of money, lied and said that she was alone that day. Gary Hamilton ended up in prison for 10 years while Acombar ended up with the loot and the girl. Maria married Acombar. Released from prison, Gary Hamilton returns to the town where Acombar and Maria now live. He plans to exact revenge but Acombar is surrounded by an ... Written by nufs68

Hell To Pay : Klaus Kinski Is Back In Town
20 September 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Pardoned and freed after serving ten years hard labor for a crime he did not commit, Klaus Kinski returns to his hometown for some well-deserved payback against the bigwig who framed him.

Overly talky at first, things pick up about a third of the way in, when Kinski blows into town ahead of a violent windstorm to wreak near biblical vengeance.

And God Said To Cain... is full of neat Gothic touches such as the howling wind, the dark secluded mansion, a ringing church bell, and the silent priest playing pipe organ. All the while, there's something akin to superstitious dread on the part of Kinski's nemesis and his hired guns as the silent Klaus hides and seeks his prey.

Director Antonio Margheretti made films in all genres of Italian exploitation films (horror, peplum, giallo, etc.) with mixed success. Not bad, this one lies somewhere in the middle.

This has a great opening theme song and a satisfying fiery climax.
