Description by OLDIES.com:
Dead Men Don't Count is the work of director Rafael Romero Marchent (Garringo, also with Steffen) and writer Marco Leto (Pistol For A Hundred Coffins with Peter Lee Lawrence). The supporting cast includes Spaghetti Western favorites Pierro Lulli (Taste of Killing) as the sheriff and Raf Baldassarre (Blindman).
In Kill And Pray, the sole survivor of the massacre of his family and people for their land, a wounded boy is taken in by an itinerant preacher, his wife and their daughter. Years later, as a man, Requiescant (Lou Castel, A Bullet For The General), sets out in search of the girl, who has run away with traveling performers. His quest places him face to face with Ferguson (Damon in a rare role as a villain), the man who slaughtered his family.
This quirky Spaghetti Western is the work of film critic Carlo Lizzani, who also directed The Hills Run Red and a segment of the international spy thriller The Dirty Game with Henry Fonda and Robert Ryan.
The film is unique in the Spaghetti Western canon for its strange and vicious villain in the form of Damon's Ferguson. The character's racism, his homosexual undertones and his misogynistic sadism create questions about his relationships with virtually every character who inhabits his town.
Also included is an extensive and informative interview with Mark Damon. Both films are presented uncut and in anamorphic widescreen.
