The late Bruno Mattei
was a legend in Euro exploitation, best known for his horror (ISLAND
OF THE LIVING DEAD, ZOMBIES:
THE BEGINNING, et al) and sleaze JAIL:
WOMEN'S HELL, SNUFF
TRAP, etc). This 1987 production marked his flirtation with the
Spaghetti Western genre. Unexpectedly, it's also one of his five best
Mattei has never been so assured in his director's seat. Here are strong
characters punctuated by the nihilistic landscape of the West.
Cowritten by popular cult actor Richard Harrison, this is the ugly, mean-spirited
story of a lustful Confederate colonel who orders his soldiers to kidnap
the Comanche chief's daughter for his purpose of bedding her. After the
Calvary unit kills the chief and slaughters the tribe, the girl manages
to escape. Wounded, she finds safety at the home of a rancher (who's wife
had been killed by Indians).
The action accelerates into a maddening swirl of excessive brutality.
