Django Kill Django Kill Django Kill
This is an Italian Spaghetti Western made in Spain, and one of the strangest made, with lots of violence and surrealism. Django is a member of a gang of outlaws who murder a dozen men in order to steal a fortune in gold, but he is betrayed, shot and left for dead by the gang boss for being a "half breed." But Django survives with the help of some Indians and goes to seek revenge, only to discover that the townspeople already strung up the rest of the gang, and that two of the most respectable men of the town have stolen the gold and are fighting over it. Meahwhile, the boss of the territory and his gang of black-uniformed gay cowboys are kidnapping, torturing, and killing men to try to get the gold for themselves. They put Django in jail, chain him to a cross and torture him because he knows where the gold is hidden. He won't give in so the boss decides to bring out the big guns - hideous monsters whose bloodthirsty violence can terrify and break even the most hardened men. That's right, I'm talking about a Green Iguana! Oh the horror! We don't see what agonizing torture the iguana commits on Django, but it must have been some Abhu-Ghraib-level-internationally-condemned-abuse because he finally talks. (They also tossed some vampire bats in too, so maybe the iguana just sat in the corner like they usually do.) There are only two shots of the iguana, which were probably filmed a thousand miles away from the set Django was on. One of the shots was so sloppy, you can even see some human hands holding on to it.
