Django, Kill... If You Live, Shoot! (1967)

Directors: Giulio Questi
Starring: Tomas Milian

Genre: Spaghetti Western


"Tomas Milian stars as a half-breed bandit double-crossed and left for dead who rises from the grave to seek his revenge in a bizarre town called "The Unhappy Place" where he's plunged into an odyssey of gruesome torture, graphic violence and sexual depravity. This is the landmark movie that fans and critics still consider to be the strangest-and most controversial- 'Spaghetti Western' ever made. This is Django Kill!"- from DVD Pacific

My oppinion:
I got this one through X Rated Kult DVD's Italo Western Collection (which I recommend for any spaghetti fan, even though one of the movies is in German only) This strange and unusual spaghetti starring one of the great actors within the genre, Tomas Milian, turned out to be just as interesting as I hoped it would be. The movie starts off as standard gold-robbing/revenge spaghetti, but soon enough several interesting sub-plots enters which makes this a very enjoyable ride. Milian does a good performance and so does the rest of the cast. There are some truly memorable scenes as well. One very violent scene in particular comes to mind: the "Gold-digging" inside a living man scene.. (This scene and at least on more violent scene has probably been cut out of some versions of the film as these scenes were in German language on the X-Rated DVD.).
I really enjoyed this one, and I recommend you check it out if you're a fan of the genre. Don't expect a Django movie though, as this is just one of many title spin-off's.

My rating:
