Having survived a vigilante slaughter, four hard-luck strangers - gambler Stubby Preston (Fabio Testi of THE BIG RACKET), a pregnant prostitute (Lynne Frederick of SCHIZO), the town drunk (Michael J. Pollard of BONNIE AND CLYDE) and a madman who sees dead people (Harry Baird of THE OBLONG BOX) - escape into the lawless frontier. But when they meet a sadistic bandit named Chaco (Tomas Milian of RUN MAN RUN), 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 director Lucio Fulci himself - considered it to be one of the greatest films of the maestro's career.
Nothing is said about this afterward, almost like it never happen.
This might seem like a pretty straightforward checklist of events, but the presentation and mood of the picture make it all feel like a fevered, surreal dream.
It's not gonna rank among the best westerns of all time, but it's decent and shows that Fulci had potential in this genre.
First off I'm a big fan of Tomas Milian - my favorite western is Companeros! With him, Franco Nero & Jack Parlance. It's just wild. "The Great Silence" is fantastic too. Read morePublished 24 days ago by SpaceCommander

This movie is an absolute mess. You thought Fulci's horror entries made little sense or were disconnected? Wait to you waste an hour and 45 minutes watching this atrocity. Read morePublished on September 20, 2012 by Muddguts

This Lucio Fulci directed spaghetti Western suffers from one thing, which almost manages to bring the whole thing down: hype. Read morePublished on January 24, 2011 by Dr. Geek
There is little in this movie to warrant watching it. It starts off as a kind of MAVERIC (remember the tv show) but then degenerates quickly to a confused kind of evangelistic... Read morePublished on October 24, 2010 by Kevin Meade
