Fabulous Spaghetti Western Review

Death Rides A Horse
Released: 1968
Rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Length: 1 hr 52 mins
Genre: Western
Starring: Lee Van Cleef, John Phillip Law, Mario Brega, Luigi Pistilli
Directed by: Giulio Petroni
Death Rides a Horse contains almost everything a spaghetti western needs to be considered great, Lee Van Cleef, music by Ennio Morricone, revenge and some other stuff. What's missing? Clint Eastwood. Instead we get John Phillip Law, who wasn't bad per se, but his voice drove me insane. Like a little boy trying to talk like a man. Still, this is a quality western, and should be on everyone who is a fan of the genre's must see list.
8 out of 10 (Very, very good)
