The summer burns long and the Westerns just keep on coming.
The latest double bill release from Wild East is an incredibly obscure pairing, but one well worth tracking down for genre fans. Made in the same year, by the same director and with many of the same cast, Kill or be Killed is a very traditional film, clearly showing its American influences – Kill the Wickeds is however a pure dose of Spaghetti – harsh, brutal and horror tinged. The pairing provides a fascinating look at how the genre evolved in the mid-1960s.
Wild East have done a good job with the prints here, although sadly KobK does have some audio problems – certainly not enough to stop this set being recommended to Spaghetti Western fans though.
