Django the Bastard movie poster


A mysterious, vengeful stranger rides into town and creates all sorts of havoc in this spaghetti western. It seems there are a number of people on his list and before he metes out justice to each one, he places a cross with that person's name on it in the middle of the street. The burning question becomes whether these people are dealing with a one man army of flesh and blood or an avenging angel of death.
