Editorial Reviews

The Stranger's Gundown: With its horror-movie styling and ultra-violent nature, this perfect example of an Euro gothic western garnered an X rating on its initial Italian release. During the Civil War, three Confederate officers, leaders of a Confederate regiment, sell out to the Yankees, kill the sentries and allow the enemy troops to slaughter their whole company. One of their men, however, does not die... Left for dead, the Stranger (Anthony Steffen, Italy s answer to Clint Eastwood!) lies unconscious on the ground, severely wounded. Several years go by and, as though coming back from hell, the Stranger begins hunting down his enemies the men that left him for dead. Is he a ghost, or just a man hell-bent on revenge! 99 min / Color / 2.35:1 / PG / 1974. Today We Kill...Tomorrow We Die!: Bill Kiowa (Montgomery Ford) is released after a five-year prison term for a crime he did not commit. The bandit El Fego (Tatsuya Nakadai), who did the actual crime, also killed Kiowa s young Indian wife. Once free Kiowa raises a gang to go after the man who framed him. An Italian western in the "A Fistful of Dollars" mold with a better than average cast, which includes Bud Spencer in the debut of his heavy-handed character, later made famous in the "Trinity" series and the outstanding Japanese actor Tatsuya Nakadai, famous for his role in Akira Kurosawa s "Kagemusha". And uncharacteristically written by horror-meister Dario Argento. Digitally re-mastered from a 35mm print with the alternate U.S. title "Today It's Me... Tomorrow You". 95 min / Color / 1.85:1 / PG / 1968. Bonus Features: The Stranger's Gundown: Widescreen Transfer Enhanced for 16x9 monitors, Spaghetti Western Trailers. Today We Kill...Tomorrow We Die!: Anamorphic Widescreen Enhanced for 16x9 monitors, Spaghetti Western Trailers. Product Specs: 1-DVD9; Dolby Digital Mono; 202 minutes; Color; 2.35:1 / 1.85:1 Aspect Ratio; Year - 1968 & 1971; SRP - $14.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Double Fistful of Power May 17, 2010
Format:DVD
VCI Entertainment has combined 2 of their previously released Spaghetti Westerns into one volume. Both are essential viewing for fans of the genre. 'STRANGERS GUN DOWN' is actually the alternate title to 'DJANGO THE BASTARD' with an eerie performance from Anthony Steffan which may have given Clint Eastwood inspiration for his identical film 'HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER'. 'TODAY WE KILL...TOMORROW WE DIE' has a screenplay by Dario Argento and has a west meets east villain which predates the orient Spaghetti's 'RED SUN' and 'STRANGER AND THE GUNFIGHTER'. Brett Halsey and pre-Trinity Bud Spencer head a solid cast and has a catchy music score by Angelo Francesco Lavagnino which bounces around in your head long after the movie is over. Both films are in their widescreen aspect ratios and have great sound and picture quality. If you missed these when they were first released, grab them now and round out your collection.

STRANGER'S GUNDOWN: A unique combination of spooky Euro-Goth Horror combined with Spaghetti Western, this flick has the reputation of being the inspiration for Clint Eastwood's "High Plains Drifter". Anthony Steffen, the tall, lanky, somewhat wooden-faced Euro-Western veteran, was a co-writer of the script here; the picture is pretty much an ideal match for his particular skill. That is to say, it requires someone to be tall, imposing, bad-ass, and a little morose; with out any emoting or histrionics. He does a great job.

A mysterious figure arrives in town to seek revenge on the men responsible for a long-ago crime. The stranger, who was believed to have died, stalks and haunts the men, in and out of their homes, seemingly coming and going at will. For this reason, they come to fear that they are being trailed by his ghost, literally returned from beyond to avenge their crime.

The film is set in motion with a brilliant opening sequence, which has quickly become one of my favorite scenes from any Spaghetti Western. Allow me to break it down:

As the winds howl through the streets of a seemingly deserted town, we see a tall, black-clad figure stride slowly across the screen. First a POV shot of the Stranger's boots crunching down on the dirt with each step, then a wide-angle shot seen through the spokes of a wagon wheel, finally, a dramatic, panoramic overhead shot. The Stranger, wearing a hat pulled low and a black cloak, keeps his face hidden from the camera. Finally he comes to stop in front of a grimy saloon, and from chest-level we see him pull back his cloak to reveal a wooden cemetery cross bearing a name and a date. With a bold thrust, the Stranger plants the cross into the ground so that it is visible from the saloon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spaghetti Saturday Matinee Double Feature! September 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this due to Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die! Which the appeal of it was it had William Berger in a major role and he was a "good" guy. I loved it plus one of my favorite Japanese actors Tatsuya Nakadai was in it as the chief villain and Bud Spencer as his usual roughneck which for me is always fun. The film hit all the right notes and was 100% fun w/ out snaking into depravity. If you want all out fun this is the one to watch.
Strangers Gundown (Django the Bastard) was the surprise in this set. I expected next to nothing from it but it was very,very cool. I read somewhere it was a possible influence on High Plains Drifter, could be,there are some definite similarities but this one is very fun and is a far better movie than I ever expected. In fact it is a vastly underrated movie as it is fairly obscure. It was a fun creepy revenge western and Anthony Steffen had an emancipated William Smith vibe going for him. Highly recommended for fans of Spaghetti and EC comics style creep fests. Both movies are great for a Saturday afternoon. Enjoy 'em, I know I did!
