Anthony Steffen (The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, Killer Fish) stars as the mysterious stranger named Django, a ghost-like figure who walks into a dusty western town with vengeance on his mind. As he finds the men he’s looking for, he places a cross with the person’s name and death date in the middle of the street before enacting violent revenge! Is Django truly an unstoppable human army-of-one, or an avenging immortal angel of death?
An intriguing spaghetti western with gothic horror genre elements, Django the Bastard bears striking similarities to Clint Eastwood’s film High Plains Drifter, released four years later. This version of Django the Bastard is the alternate English language U.S. version titled The Strangers Gundown, remastered in high-definition widescreen from a beautiful original 35mm negative element.
