I saw "Massacre Time", a western by Lucio Fulci last weekend. Fulci, who is more famous for his horror movies like "Fear In The City Of The Living Dead", "The House By The Cemetery" and "The Beyond", made this western in the 1960s and had Franco Nero as the main lead, before Nero went onto to do "Django", a film that made him an international star. Apart from the obvious inconsistencies that are innate to Fulci's movie plots, somethings stood out. Nero' character dress up like Clint Eastwood' from trousers to scarf to sheepskin vest sans the poncho. In the movie, his half brother, though acts like a complete loser, is actually far better in gun and shooting skills than Nero' character himself. Did Fulci deliberately "run down" Nero' character to make fun of "Man With No Name"?

Django was made before Massacre Time. In between he had already starred in another SW Texas addio, but which was released 3 weeks after Massacre Time.

Massacre Time was most likely already shot before the success of Django could have had an influence on the budget or the style.
