Five Bloody Graves1970

  • 3.1
FIVE BLOODY GRAVES is a grim and downright gruesome western chock full of bloody gun blasts and violence galore. It stars the legendary John Carradine and 'B' stalwarts Robert Dix, Scott Brady and Jim Davis and features the cinematography of Academy Award® winner Vilmos Zsigmond. A renegade tribe of monstrous, murdering, bloodthirsty redskins are on the war path and every settler will pay with his or her scalp. The lone man who can stop them is Ben Thompson, who rides the desert high plains with Death and Terror as his only companions. Ben seeks vengeance on Satago, the evil Apache chief who butchered his wife on their wedding day, and he teams up with Satago's half-brother to track him down and string him up for the vultures. When the death-dealing duo come upon a wrecked stagecoach carrying prostitutes and a preacher, they battle to keep the survivors alive and in one piece in savage Indian territory.

With the same sleazy panache he brings to the biker flick, Al Adamson gives the western an oogie quality that revels in turpitude. Five Bloody Graves has that low-grade feel that all the drive-in/grindhouse fodder of the time had...but there is a charm to the proceedings.

Never mind the obviously non-Native American actors portraying all the Yaqui. Never mind the odd musical score that makes it seem that the Sands Hotel and the Rat Pack is right around the next mesa. Never mind the odd, prudish cutaways from most of the violence in the pic (these are supposed to be BLOODY graves, right?!). FIVE BLOODY GRAVES is a solid oater with (for the most part) good acting and a decent (if derivative) storyline.

If you like Adamson's other flicks — and how could you not?! — then 5BG should be right up your arroyo.
