Bruno Mattei Westerns

Wild West Summer goes seriously esoteric with a look at two Westerns created by Italian exploitation veteran Bruno Mattei in the late 1980s.

A decade after the Spaghetti Western demised, these two films show a strange mix of influences, combining exploitation gore (and lots of it in Scalps especially) with some surprisingly enjoyable and well paced storylines and good looking direction.

Recommended to Euro-cult fans looking for something different, Bianco Apache (1986) and Scalps, venganza india (1987) are available on good looking Spanish DVDs, with English audio.
