I'd actually heard about the eyeball thing before seeing the movie, so I was actually braced for it to be much worse.
Yeah, the back of the DVD packaging said that it had "restored the now infamous 'eyeball torture' scene" or something like that, so I knew something like that would be in the movie. But I wasn't expecting it to involve the sun.

So if anyone doesn't have these yet and is interested, the price is $15.99. HERE'S the link for it on Best Buy's website.
I just saw where you can get this for a cheaper price, deepdiscountdvd.com

anyone who has seen it can maybe answer this question, i recently bought the dvd, and loved it btw, but the best quote in the whole movie(it was in the trailer made by the same company that put out the dvd) doesn't appear to be in the film.

'my name is in the wind blowin' over my fathers grave'... did i miss it or is it not in the movie? the back of the dvd also totes an uncut extended version of the film with some eyeball torture scene put back in... i don't recall any eyeball torture scene... just mannaja buried up to his chin with nails in his eyes, but no actual action of putting them in or anything... did I miss the quote and the eyeball torture or were they simply not there?

It's been a little while since I've seen Mannaja, but I think the quote is in there. I do remember it from the trailer.

The eyeball torture scene is there. What you described is the extent of it. Whatever it is that keeps him from being able to blink while being forced to look up into the sun. I'm guessing they must have cut out some of those shots in the past.

the quote is definatly not there. u mssed nothing. just for the trailer for whatever reason(whether deleted or otherwise)

as for the EYEBALL TORTURE SCENE again u missed nothing. i know kinda disappointing Cry
it last like 20 seconds.
and i found it stupid that CRAVEN pulls him out.but they made up for it later when he betrays him. that made sense, that was the plan all along. u would think he would have turned him in sooner though. Undecided

speaking of which what the hell does the singer say after " this here was youre fathers land"?


i think its something like
"looking back u cant pretend"(whatever that means)

(then after that it is clear as to what he says.)
"u love justice and u love peace... when the time has come to kill... to destroy who love to kill
(then more babble that goes something like)
and youre hand will fight the odds ...(then back to understandable) and youre conscience will be satisfied.



come to think of it, does anyone have the lyrics?

since you haven't seen it for awhile it is possible you are mistaken... there is in fact something along the same lines in the movie... mcgowan asks him what his real name is and mannaja goes on about his dead father, i don't recall the exact words but they aren't far off, just not quite as poetic as 'in the wind blowin over my fathers grave'

Is it any good? I'm going to be watching it very soon. I'll leave my review later (probably a pretty short one). Maybe I'll leave a review for the other spags I'll be watching soon (Sabata, Ace High, The Trinity films, Four of the Apocalypse).

Nah, didn't buy 'em. I discovered that NetFlix had a few more spaghetti westerns than I thought, so I put all those in the queue. I'm going to search around for any more that I didn't know about. I was shocked earlier because they had Lemonade Joe.
