Did Fidani ever had the guts to show his face at a showing of one of his movies? I mean, running the risk of being spotted by a raging crowd asking for refund? Calling the police for help? I imagine this has happened more than one time, can't imagine people putting up with this sheepishly.
And while watching one of his movies, one ask himself all kinds of questions: did he realize how cheap he was? Did the main actors realize this? Were they payed?
But is the best (worst) of his movies under a financial pov: you see that he managed at a point to pull more than 20 people at the same time under the lens of his camera.
And the moving bushes sequence will leave an imprint on any viewer's brain.
The score is first class, wasted on the images (I think a score as cheap as the images of this is that of Django Kills's).

I'll let you know what I think in a few days as I have decided to cut my losses and finally view this , this very weekend.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

I'll brace myself.

entertaining but I'll never sit through it again.

I liked his "my name is Sam Walbash but they call me Amen" much better.

Not sure if more actors on screen constitutes as "bigger budget" because there were a lot of scenes that took place in the vast and barren countryside. He could have put family members to work for free as extras for all we know.

Then again...Kinski's in it.

His scenes are good.

The bush moving scene didn't leave an impression but the scene of Kinski breaking up the fight did.

I don't know what you saw in the soundtrack as I cannot remember one tune (and I saw it last night).
