"Horror maestro Mario
Bava (Black Sunday)
tries something new with this zany satire of Sergio
Leone's Dollars trilogy. Roy Colt
(Four Times that Night's
and Winchester Jack (Charles
Southwood) are two roguish cowboys
whose gang isn't very successful at earning a dishonest dollar.
Fed up with starving, the two friends decide to go their separate
ways, with Roy vowing to find an honest job. But he changes
his mind after arriving in Carson City where he is made sheriff
and entrusted with the replica of a stolen treasure map leading
to a fortune in buried gold! Who will reach the gold first?
Will it be Roy? The Reverend (5
Dolls for and August Moon's Teodoro
Corra), a Russian outlaw with a
fistful of dynamite? Jack and his gang? The Jewish desperado
Bernstein (Mauro Bosco)?
Or perhaps Mahila (Marilu Tolo),
the mercenary Native American seductress desired by the Old
West's Most Wanted? The answer may surprise you as the Maestro
of Italian Horror takes them all on a date with a skull and
an open grave in an ancient Indian burial ground!"

I didn't have high expectations to this
one after reading some bad reviews on the net, but I decided
to give it a shot anyways. After all, I'm a big fan of Spaghetti
Westerns. I ended up feeling pretty pleased with it. Sure,
it's not among the best spaghetti westerns out there, not
even close, but I found it to be somewhat entertaining nonetheless.
I especially enjoyed the reverend character and the scenes
in the brothel were crazy and fun. Some of the humour comes
out as pretty silly and dumb though.
All in all, I think it's worth seeing for fans of Spaghetti
Westerns and Bava fans, just don't expect a masterpiece, because
that it is not...
