Good Looking But Too Slow
24 February 2010 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Ruthless bounty killer Hunt Powers rides into a town controlled by a very nasty mine-owner, in order to make the man face justice for his past misdeeds. Trailing the bounty hunter is another man who wants to do the same with Powers.

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.
