Just give MASSACRE TIME another go somewhere down the road. 4 OF THE APOCALYPSE was difficult to sit through. It felt like several years were shaved off my life watching that. Years I can't get back.  :P

Agree with you on FOTA.  And I only watched forty minutes of it!

I feel I should give Massacre Time a second chance since everybody seems to think it's quite good.

I remember my initial reaction to Massacre Time being one of disappointment.  I thought it was pretty bland.
I really like Massacre Time and think it's better than Apocalypse or Silver Saddle.

I had a Danish tape and i sold it to a Danish collector, unfortunately i forgot to do a dvd-r of it before i let it go.

It's an enjoyable film though.
The score by Bixio, Frizzi & Tempera has a song that the De Angelis brothers would have been proud of :-\

I just watched Massacre Time and thought it was rather good.

The storyline is nothing original, but the brutality sets it above the SW mid-card. The whipping sequence in particular is certainly a hint of what Fulci would do over a decade later.

It is a pity that the Italian DVD is the only real way to go with this film, but at least it is watchable, and in English.

I've read a lot of reviews of this stating how some of the action in MASSACRE TIME inspired John Woo, or informed his style rather.  Kind of funny, but I guess some of the action does seem like a precursor to the HK action film.

John Woo's style is taken from his mentor Chang Cheh. If you have seen any of Cheh's movies they are all about brotherhood, male bonding and lots of violent deaths which Woo uses in all his HK films and to a slightly lesser extent in his US movies.

The pigeons and Nero emptying his gun into Puppo's stomach made me think of Woo when I first watched it.

Woo was asked about the pigeons in his movies and he said it was his religious upbringing.

Surprised by some of the bad rap Four of the Apocalypse has received here... For my money, it is one of the best spaghetti westerns of all time - right up there with The Great Silence. It is built solely around atmosphere - brooding and melancholic - not action. Strong Italo cast with a great turn from Michael J. Pollard. The film also has to have one of the finest scores: haunting and personal yet epic (I don't even like folk per se!). It's without doubt one of Fulci's most accomplished works, along with Beatrice Cenci, Perversion Story and Murder to the Tune of Seven Black Notes - showing a more mature, reserved style of filmmaking. And it's all the more effective for it. Don't get me wrong... I love Massacre Time. It's a gothic masterpiece but it doesn't push the genre's envelope to the extent of Four of the Apocalypse. And as for Silver Saddle - it's a an amusing but lighweight macaroni western (if I remember rightly - need to watch my vhs again) with a great score but the least interesting of the three. I need to see A Bullet for Sandoval... What's the story behind the co-director credit and is it any good?

It's been awhile since I watched it, but I remember enjoying Four of the Apocalypse as well.  For a genre that at that point had first become saturated with clones and rip-offs, then in a perverse move turned to comedy, FotA is definitely a breath of fresh air.

I couldn't get into the movie myself (4OTA) and didn't see what was so special about it. I tried watching it again not long after and became disenchanted with the film yet again.
