Description

Box set featuring 4 classic spaghetti westerns including "$10,000 Blood Money", "Vengeance is Mine", "Find a Place to Die" & "Matalo! (Kill Him)".

In the mid-1960s, the success of Sergio Leone's 'Dollars' trilogy gave rise to an explosion of similar productions. Filmmakers sought to capitalize on this new, uniquely Italian take on the western, characterized by their deeply cynical outlook, morally compromised antiheroes and savage violence. This specially curated selection gathers four outstanding examples of the genre, all centered around the theme of blood money.

In Romolo Guerrieri's $10,000 Blood Money, Gianni Garko - best known for his portrayal of supernatural gunslinger Sartana - takes on the part of another beloved western antihero, Django, who is on the trail of bandit Manuel Vasquez (Claudio Camaso). But what started as a job for hire soon turns personal, with Django swearing vengeance against the unscrupulous outlaw. Then, in the film's spiritual successor, Giovanni Fago's Vengeance is Mine (1967; a.k.a. $100,000 for a Killing), Garko and Camaso once again star as estranged half-brothers - one a Confederate soldier now riding with renegade outlaws, the other a bounty hunter tasked with bringing him in alive.

Next, in Giuliano Carnimeo's Find a Place to Die, Jeffrey Hunter plays Joe Collins, a disgraced former soldier who assembles a ragtag band of scoundrels. They are lured into helping a woman to rescue her prospector husband, who is trapped at their gold mine cave-in - though in reality, they have designs on the gold strike themselves. Finally, in Cesare Canevari's psychedelic Matalo! (Kill Him), a band of outlaws, having holed up in a ghost town, set about terrorizing travelers Ray and Bridget - only to get more than they bargained for when Ray fights back, armed only with a bag full of boomerangs.

Featuring a wealth of key Euro-cult talent both behind and in front of the camera, Arrow Films proudly presents these four classic westerns in sparkling High Definition restorations alongside a plethora of bonus materials.
