What our staff has to say: “One of the most influential and important westerns of all time, directed by the legendary Sergio Martino and starring Franco Nero in the role that made him famous, the infamous loner Django, who drags a mysterious coffin behind him through the west. ESSENTIAL.” – Justin

In this definitive spaghetti western, Franco Nero (KeomaThe Fifth Cord) gives a career-defining performance as Django, a mysterious loner who arrives at a mud-drenched ghost town on the Mexico-US border, ominously dragging a coffin behind him. After saving imperilled prostitute Maria (Loredana Nusciak), Django becomes embroiled in a brutal feud between a racist gang and a band of Mexican revolutionaries…

With Django, director Sergio Corbucci (The Great Silence) upped the ante for sadism and sensationalism in westerns, depicting machine-gun massacres, mud-fighting prostitutes and savage mutilations. A huge hit with international audiences, Django’s brand of bleak nihilism would be repeatedly emulated in a raft of unofficial sequels.

The film is presented here in an exclusive restoration with a wealth of extras.
