No, the only relation they have is that Franco Nero stars in both. Django was such a success that the name was attached to anything and everything. If you get the Blue Underground DVD of "Run Man Run" (better than Django and Keoma imo), there's an interesting extra feature on spaghetti westerns that goes into that.

Yeah, I've got a version of that on the 10 movie brentwood collection that has "Hellbenders" on it. On there, it's called "A Town Called Hell". It's a really crappy transfer, but the movie's so bad I don't think it really matters.  :P

I liked it too. I've got the MGM DVD. The original ending has been cut though. :-\

I was surprised to find it new for $56 at a local shop. Well worth the price.

Here's how I rank 'em:

1. Bullet For The General: Lot's of fun with some great plot twists. Very well done. Gian Maria Volonté steals the show!

2. Companeros: Another fun one with great performances by Tomas Milian and Franco Nero. Any film with Jack Palance as a "pot-crazed sadist" has got to be good!

3. Four Of The Apocalypse: I'd read mixed reviews on this one, so I didn't know what to expect. I liked it! I am a horror fan as well though, so I can see why some don't care for it. Some scenes were hard to watch, but otherwise, it's a beautiful film and Milian and Michael J. Pollard really help.

4. Texas Adios: This one is okay, but suffers from some pretty poor dubbing. It's enjoyable enough, but nothing really memorable.

5. Keoma: I had high expectations for this one. I thought it'd be the best of the bunch. NOT TOO GOOD! The film was well directed and nice to look at, but the score killed it. Oh my god, the caterwauling! I wanted to like it. Oh well. ::)

Overall, I'm glad I bought this set and am looking forward to sharing with my friends if I can talk any of them into it! My poor wife is getting a little burnt on westerns to say the least!

There's plenty of good "forgotton" non-Leone spaghetti's. A good one with Lee Van Cleef that you can find fairly cheap is "Beyond The Law". I found it on a collection that included "Death Rides a Horse" (pretty cool), "God's Gun" (pretty weak I thought :)) and "Boot Hill" (unwatchable, but would like to see a restored version). "Death Rides a Horse" is the one you hear about the most, but I actually prefered "Beyond The Law". It was fun.

Another somewhat forgotten spag. is "Hellbenders". I got it on another cheap 10-movie brentwood collection. It's a fun film with a great Morricone score.
