After a deadly confrontation with the racist local sheriff in the town's whites-only bar, the half-Apache, Pardon Chato, flees into the unforgiving desert. Hell-bent on making Chato pay, the famed former Confederate officer, Captain Quincey Whitmore, assembles an angry posse of blood-thirsty men; however, who is the hunter, and who is the hunted? Do Whitmore's toughs stand a chance of surviving in Chato's dangerous land?
What Chato's land doesn't kill, Chato will.

I've seen Comanches in Texas. And boy, I'll never want to see one again... I can tell you that.
Capt. Quincey Whitmore

The German R2 MGM DVD (which has an English language track) is the full uncut version including the horsefalls cut by the BBFC for the UK release (there are 4 cuts, 3 when Chato ambushes the posse early on to scare them off and 1 later when he shoots Victor French's horse). This also shows Chato's friend being set on fire and Jack Palance shooting into his blazing body as a mercy killing (cut for R1 DVD as described above). See more
