Westerns

That noise you can hear is the gentle jingle of our spurs jangling. But don’t worry, we’re not here to collect the bounty on you. Yet. Just to let you know that you can tear down that WANTED: A SEASON OF AMAZING WESTERNS poster off the wall right now, because we have got you covered. Because this month: the Western is taking over.

Even if you already know your Django from your Sartana there’s still plenty to discover, and if this is the first Westerns bandwagon you’ve hitched your horse too you are in for a treat too! These aren’t your dad or grandad’s Sunday afternoon oaters, ‘Westerns Takeover’ is a collection of sadistic, super stylish epics packed full of anti-heroes played by the supercool likes of Franco Nero, Klaus Kinski, Lee Van Cleef and even a turn from the notoriously naughty director Pier Paolo Pasolini.

With plenty of revenge, stunts, fancy shooting, Morricone scores, angry bandits over-estimating the speed of their quick-draw and gruff pistoleros cleaning up crooked towns, ‘Westerns Takeover’ has all the sweaty, blood and dust-covered, six-gun action you’ve always pined for around the campfire. It's the horse-opera, ARROW style.
