Sod Tarantino! Anyone wanting a hardcore Western hero should look no further than the upcoming Arrow release of Django, Prepare A Coffin on Monday 14th of January.
The debut on DVD of Ferdinando Baldi’s film, Django, Prepare A Coffin is a long lost and previously unavailable sequel to Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 Spaghetti Western classic Django which will be available shortly before the arrival of another instalment in the series – Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated Django Unchained.
Originally known upon its Italian release as Preparati la bara!, Django, Prepare A Coffin stars a young Terence Hill (They Call Me Trinity) as the wandering gunslinger, Django… He is hired as executioner by a corrupt local politician who is framing innocent men, and sending them to hang in an evil scheme to take hold of their land.
Unfortunately for the politician, Django has other ideas and, cleverly faking the deaths of the condemned men, he assembles them into a loyal gang who’ll help him take down the boss, a man who had a hand in the death of Django’s wife years before.
Watch as Django gets his bloody revenge with a hail of bullets in this classic from a series of B-movie westerns that helped to define a genre. Prepare your coffin now!
The main musical theme in Django, Prepare A Coffin – a slow, mournful lament featuring a plodding bass line and souring trumpet – was sampled by Gnarls Barkley on their Grammy winning global smash-hit single “Crazy”.
The film comes out on DVD on Monday 14th of January. You can watch the trailer below:
