4.0 out of 5 stars Good, definitely worth buying 14 Oct 2011
"Cut Throats Nine" is a Euro western that I had been wanting to see for a long time so I was very pleased to see that Code Red have released this. As a big western and horror fan I was always curious about the description of this being the most gory western ever. I'm not going to argue with that as it's quite bloody and gory, however, is the film itself any good? Well yes I did enjoy this western and not just the violent parts. The story is of an Army Sergeant and his daughter who after their carriage is destroyed by bandits, then have to transport on foot 9 dangerous and sadistic criminals chained together through the harsh terrain to a distant fort. Set in a freezing snowy backdrop and wilderness it has an effective atmosphere and is always watchable (and there are many familiar faces here from Spanish horror films). The gritty look and feel is constant throughout and it has to be up there with the most bleak westerns ever made. There are not really any heroes or anti heroes here nor any fast gun play. Horror and exploitation fans might get more from this than traditional western fans, but I think there's much to enjoy for both. The infamous gore scenes are the type used to seeing in a Fulci horror, with bloody stabbings,entrails etc. Although it can never be compared to the best Euro westerns in terms of quality this is still an enjoyable watch.

Also on this DVD as an extra film is the Fred Williamson western "Joshua". The highly familiar story has Williamson gaining revenge on those who killed his mother. He tracks them across the country and picks them off one by one. This is an average film that for large parts is quite slow, but does have its moments. The cinematography is quite nice and Williamson does have charisma as the tough cool guy out for revenge. When the action comes it's OK but in all is quite a run of the mill western. However, it's certainly nice to have as a bonus film.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 unique westerns of the era make for a good DVD 25 Jan 2012
By Sethicus - Published on Amazon.com
I got this DVD cause I have heard a lot about Cut Throats Nine, mainly that it is one of the bleakest and goriest westerns of the era (which is saying a lot considering this was released the same time the Italians were really pushing the envelope in terms of violence with their westerns). And it is true, I was expecting scenes of people getting riddled with bullets or scalped by Native Americans but instead I got these long Fulciesque, lingering shots of the aftermath of mutilation and murder... it is really nauseating. The story is also very bleak and there is a constant feeling of hopelessness from the beginning to the end of the film. At the same time, I think the film is very well acted and the story is quite compelling, even throwing in a predictable but nice little twist. Another thing I liked a lot about the movie is the locations, it's mainly shot outdoors in some truly beautiful snow covered mountain ranges. All in all, though quite unpleasant, I do think Cut Throats Nine is a well made and intriguing movie.

The other movie that came with the DVD is Joshua, one I had never heard of. It's sort of a blaxploitation western starring none other than Fred Williamson who starred in many other blaxploitation flicks, including the totally cool Black Caesar. Here he is a man of few words, out for revenge against the people that murdered his mother. The plot is totally cliche but it works and even though Fred isn't as cool as he is in some of his other efforts, he still lends a lot to the movie just by sitting there on his horse and looking like a hard ass. It's not a memorable movie but it still manages to be an entertaining one. One question that kept coming up in my head is, "did blue jeans exists back in the old west?" cause almost everyone in this movie is wearing blue jeans.

The DVD from Code Red is nice, I like these double bill DVDs that they are releasing. There are not really any special features but there is the "42nd Street Experience" that plays both movies in a row with trailers before and in between. I recommend, if you are patient enough to sit through 2 movies, to try the 42nd experience cause it's how these films might have been viewed back in the day.

I guess of the 2, I thought Cut Throats Nine was the best but Joshua was definitely a more enjoyable watch. If you are into old grind house/exploitation/western movies I think this is well worth picking up. It's 2 movies for the price of one, neither are amazing but neither are bad either and I promised you will be entertained!
4.0 out of 5 stars Gory Horror Western 2 April 2014

I loved Cut Throats Nine! I bought this blind because it sounded interesting and I was shocked at how violent and gory it was. So much fun! There's a thread of horror running through the entire film and the gore effects only added to it. I don't remember Joshua as well but I remember enjoying it too. This is a fantastic double bill DVD and I highly recommend it. Cut Throats Nine is the highlight. My only quibble was seeing the horses plunge off the road while still attached to a rampaging stagecoach. I don't like seeing animals being frightened or hurt that way for a film.

If Cut-Throat Nine is a cult classic, cults must be getting more stupid. One of the worst movies I've ever scene. Despite getting 2 movies for the price of one, it still wasn't worth it !!!
