Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 02/10/1995
"...Notably bizarre effects and superb surround-stereo..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/18/1995
"...Raimi's tasy homage to spaghetti-Western maestro Sergio Leone -- spiced with Raimi's offbeat humor -- goes down pretty easily..."
Variety - 02/13/1995
"...DiCaprio has fun..."
New York Times - 02/10/1995
"...Ms. Stone's presence nicely underscores the genre-bending tactics of Sam Raimi..."
A young woman seeks to avenge her father's death at the annual gunfighter's tournament in the ghostly town called Redemption, where an outlaw named Herod rules with a brutal, calculating precision. The film is set on the town's one dusty street as one fighter after another is fatally eliminated from the ranks until only two fighters remain: the young woman, and Herod, her father's killer.
