Synopsis

A family of ex-Confederate killers, led by a fanatical patriarch, massacre a Union Army convoy in order to finance an invasion of the North. Before the clan can reignite the Civil War, they’ll have to smuggle a coffin crammed with the stolen loot across a frontier inflamed by extreme vengeance.

Our take

This fierce spaghetti western from Sergio Corbucci (Django) shows Confederate fervor as savage violence, miles away from depictions in Hollywood westerns. Starring Joseph Cotten as a hellish killer, the morally-ravished American frontier is backed by a stunning score from composer Ennio Morricone.
