Very short budget Spaghetti Western with its ordinary elements, being lousily directed by Demofilo
5 February 2020 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This bottom of barrel Ravioli Western contains duels , brawls , crossfire and dragging a lot , balancing in ups and downs . The plot summary is plain and simple : a small town is besieged by a brutal band of cutthroats who kill and kidnap , while Sartana appears and takes expedite justice on his hands . Below average Sartana movie, in which various bandits kidnap young Susy : Simonetta Vitelli , niece of the Mayor mayor of Clayton City , Frank Clonny : Franco Rizzi . The reward to free her is 15000 dollars, then Frank delivers the money , and they free her, but the nasty band kidnaps again : a little boy in exchange for another large sum of money . As Sartana : Jeff Cameron , is hired to chase the outlaws.

This Pasta western packs thrills , go riding , noisy action , shootouts and several scenes with no much sense . It is an inferior Spaghetti Western in very low budget with usual ingredients : violent face off , ordinary zooms , greedy antiheroes and spectacular showdown with abundant crusty faces . Here Sartana thinks a plan which will permit to recover the rewards and take down the outlaws , this Sartana is lousily performed by the blonde Jeff Cameron , a Z-actor with whom director Demofilo Fidani worked in various films. Cameron interpreted in a great number of Spaghettis as a main actor and as a secondary , and he used to utilize varius pseudonyms as Glen Fortes , as he played : Nevada Kid , Sartana ..e vennero in quattro per uccidere Sartana! , Passa Sartana... è l'ombra della tua morte , Straniero... fatti il segno della croce! , Prega Dio... e scavati la fossa! , Django cut price corpses , Strange say your prayers , among others.

The picture was badly directed by Demofilo Fidani or Miles Deem, deemed to be the Ed Wood of Spaghetti Western and husband of Mila Vitelli, a costume designer and mother of actress Simonetta Vitelli , both of whom worked in several films directed by Fidani . Demofilo made films of all kinds of genres in short budget and exploitation pictures. He eventually had more pseudonyms that any working director in the world, similar to Bruno Mattei and Jess Frank. Fidani wrote and directed adventure : ¨Karzan jungle lord¨ , Thriller : ¨La legge de la Camorra¨, Sex comedy : ¨La professoressa di lingue¨, Giallo : ¨Masseusse good-looking offers her services¨, and Western : ¨Arrivano Django e Sartana¨, ¨Django e Sartana all ultimo sangue¨, ¨Passa Sartana¨, ¨Nevada Kid¨, ¨Django story¨, ¨Giu testa... Hombre¨, ¨Era Sam Wallash!¨.

Other Sartana movies are as follows : The first Sartana was ¨Gunfighters Die Harder" or "If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death" a trend-setting film by Gianfranco Parolini with Gianni Garco , Klaus Kinski and Fernando Sancho . The best Sartana are directed by Giuliano Carmineo , alias Anthony Ascott, he realized various with George Hilton who replaces to Gianni Garco or Gary Hudson . George Hilton played more natural and roguish than Garco who was cold and peculiar . The later "Sartana" movies directed by Anthony Ascott became increasingly cartoonish and humorous . It was followed by director Alfonso Balcazar with ¨Sartana non Perdona or Sonora¨ with George Martin , Jack Elam and Gilbert Roland . And ¨Sartana in the valley of death¨ by Roberto Mauri with William Berger as Sartana . Miles Deem directed four Sartanas deemed awful , lousy and cheesy . Furthermore , a string of sequels and rip-offs with other Z-series directors . Rating 3/10 inferior and embarassing Spaghetti Western. This is exclusively for Spaghetti Westerns hardcore fans.
