Editorial Reviews

CUT THROATS NINE (90min)A band of cutthroat chain gang prisoners are chained together and on the loose as they play cat and mouse with each other in this violent and gritty Spanish thriller. Greed and Gold is the name of the game in this 1972 box office flop that eventually gained a cult following. Distributor Seafirm Kalalexis picked up the film several years later and re-shot some gory violence as a gimmick to bring in the audiences on 42nd Street. Another crazy gimmick they implemented was by distributing actual cardboard masks to theaters to be given out to the paying audience to wear so that they could avoid watching any of the violent scenes! The gimmick was a faliure to say the least but thanks to today's youthful audiences the film has now gained a cult following thanks to Kalalexis' added scenes. Code Red and Seafirm Kalalexis are proud to bring you for the first time the gory classic in its first authorized DVD release in the USA! JOSHUA (90min)Also included as a 2nd feature is JOSHUA with Fred Williamson. A band of dirty outlaws kidnap a rancher's young wife and kill the maid. Little did they know that the maid was Joshua's (Williamson) mother. Now the vengeance-filled rancher orders Joshua to find the outlaws and kill them one by one. Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: WESTERN Rating: R Age: 851740003062 UPC: 851740003062 Manufacturer No: WARD006

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 unique westerns of the era make for a good DVD January 24, 2012
I got this DVD cause I have heard a lot about Cut Throats Nine, mainly that it is one of the bleakest and goriest westerns of the era (which is saying a lot considering this was released the same time the Italians were really pushing the envelope in terms of violence with their westerns). And it is true, I was expecting scenes of people getting riddled with bullets or scalped by Native Americans but instead I got these long Fulciesque, lingering shots of the aftermath of mutilation and murder... it is really nauseating. The story is also very bleak and there is a constant feeling of hopelessness from the beginning to the end of the film. At the same time, I think the film is very well acted and the story is quite compelling, even throwing in a predictable but nice little twist. Another thing I liked a lot about the movie is the locations, it's mainly shot outdoors in some truly beautiful snow covered mountain ranges. All in all, though quite unpleasant, I do think Cut Throats Nine is a well made and intriguing movie.

The other movie that came with the DVD is Joshua, one I had never heard of. It's sort of a blaxploitation western starring none other than Fred Williamson who starred in many other blaxploitation flicks, including the totally cool Black Caesar. Here he is a man of few words, out for revenge against the people that murdered his mother. The plot is totally cliche but it works and even though Fred isn't as cool as he is in some of his other efforts, he still lends a lot to the movie just by sitting there on his horse and looking like a hard ass. It's not a memorable movie but it still manages to be an entertaining one. One question that kept coming up in my head is, "did blue jeans exists back in the old west?" cause almost everyone in this movie is wearing blue jeans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gory Horror Western April 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
I loved Cut Throats Nine! I bought this blind because it sounded interesting and I was shocked at how violent and gory it was. So much fun! There's a thread of horror running through the entire film and the gore effects only added to it. I don't remember Joshua as well but I remember enjoying it too. This is a fantastic double bill DVD and I highly recommend it. Cut Throats Nine is the highlight. My only quibble was seeing the horses plunge off the road while still attached to a rampaging stagecoach. I don't like seeing animals being frightened or hurt that way for a film.

If Cut-Throat Nine is a cult classic, cults must be getting more stupid. One of the worst movies I've ever scene. Despite getting 2 movies for the price of one, it still wasn't worth it !!!
