I went into this not really knowing what it was about, glad that was the case as I was totally unprepared for the story about to unravel.

Can't say much without giving it away. Definitely worth a watch.

I posted this information elsewhere, but forgot to post here:

Koch Media, who are distributing this release, have added details to their website.
It seems it will indeed have Italian, English and German audio tracks, and English and German subtitles!
Special features will include an interview with George Hilton (the Freak-O-Rama website lists this as a featurette called "Back Home Someday"), an audio interview with Lucio Fulci, various trailers, a poster/cover gallery, and an audio commentary with Leonhard Elias Lemke + Jonas Erler (I assume this commentary will be in German, and won't be English friendly).

They have 2 different covers/releases listed:

Mediabook A:


Mediabook B:

Italo-western and more...: A filmic guide  :-X :) ::)


(Available also on paperback)

The American western launched great icons like filmmaker John Ford, or his namesake actor John Wayne, into stardom. The success of these films also reverberated in Europe. From the 1960s onwards, it was the Italians in particular who revived and renewed the western genre. Sergio Leone, specially, brought out true masterpieces. His Dollar Trilogy, which brought fame to the famous Clint Eastwood, caused such a sensation that in the following years the "spaghetti-western" trend would develop. Leone, Eastwood and Morricone (direction, acting and music, respectively) are the most prominent names in this European appendix of "cowboy" cinema set in the "wild west" but shot in the Old Continent.

The Italian-style western, whose pioneers had been Leone and Corbucci, would become even more popular than the original American western in some respects. For it was more violent, more raw, more direct, with less dialogue and more visual power, without so much idealization, without a clear distinction between good and evil. In other words: more realistic. For in the "Wild West", as its name suggests, there was not much room for scruples.

In this book you will find reviewed several of the most emblematic Italo-Western films. From the classics of Leone or Corbucci to lesser-known feature films, which, without matching the works of the masters, follow the storylines and stylistic patterns of the sub-genre, sometimes contributing some innovations.

In addition, we include as an appendix some western films that, without being Italian, have the same patterns of "spaghetti-western" (i.e.: amorality, violence, black humor...). Among those other films included in this guide, a special mention deserves "El Topo" by Alejandro Jodorowsky, which, besides being formally a western (clearly inspired by the Italian style), has a deep mystical-initiatic content.

The purpose of this book is to serve as a guide for Italo-Western fans, compiling the most important and famous films of the subgenre, and including, as a curiosity, others that are less known or that, without being strictly Italo-Western, have similarities with that kind of cinema in terms of stories and style.

That´s really a great movie. Personally, I like this "Tempo di massacro" much more than the other Fulci contribution to the genre ("The four of the apocalypse").

By sheer coincidence I came across a UK DVD of this just last week - I'd not heard of it before that.
