User Reviews

Pretty good Italian spaghetti western with some touches of giallo.
12 March 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"The Price of Death" by Lorenzo Gicca Palli is quite an unusual spaghetti western as it mixes spaghetti western sub-genre with giallo/murder mystery.Silver who is elegantly dressed and lives in a hacienda with beautiful senoritas is hired to find out if the accused Chester Conway,the black sheep of the town really is guilty of the murder charge that he is to hang for.By investigating clues and arranging a trap Silver discloses some respected citizens as the guilty parties."The Price of Death" is watchable Italian spaghetti western with some humorous moments and a bit of violence.The film is quite tame and there is no nudity.However if you are a fan of Gianni Garko and Klaus Kinski you can't miss it.6 preachers out of 10.
