"Uncut. Uncensored. Unseen For Over
Having survived a vigilante slaughter, four
hard-luck strangers - gambler Stubby Preston (Fabio
Testi), a pregnant prostitute (Lynne
Frederick), the town drunk (Michael
J. Pollard) and a madman who sees dead people (Harry
Baird) - escape into the lawless frontier. But when
they meet a sadistic bandit named Chaco (Tomas
Milian), the four are plunged into a nightmare of torture,
brutality and beyond. In a land that screams with the pain
of the damned, can four lost souls find redemption and revenge?
Due to its graphic violence, Four of the Apocalypse
was banned or censored in many countries and never seen in
America. Meanwhile, fans - and Lucio Fulci himself - considered
it to be one of the greatest films of the maestro's career.

I was really intrigued with the thought
of a Fulci western, as I'd never seen any of those, and it
didn't disappoint. The movie is kind of slow paced, but that's
something I enjoy in westerns. The photography is very good
and the movie has a nice atmosphere. Some characters are also
cool, like the evil villain. You also get some nice action
sequences, and of course, Fulci adds some nice gory touches
as well. "Four of the Apocalypse" is a tragic story that worked
very well in my opinion even though it doesn't match Sergio
Leone's spaghetti westerns.
Highly recommended for Fulci fans and should be seen by fans
of the genre!
