Reviews: “A Town Called Hell” is a wonderful western that takes place in Mexico, circa 1905. Telly Savalas plays a memorable role as a villain looking for a mysterious man named “Augila”. There is some good footage of hanging people. Telly Savalas’s death scene is hilarious as it is brilliant. Martin Landau plays a jewish/mexican colonel who gets to wear a funny-looking brown mexican uniform, but no beanie. Robert Shaw, known for his classic performance as Quint in “Jaws”, plays a priest…. or is he? Stella Stevens, a has-been, plays a blond prostitute. There are some good action scenes and Johnny Horton’s “The Battle Of New Orleans” can be heard in the soundtrack in a flashback scene at a mexican dance party. A man hiding underneath a deck tries to obtain a fallen coin above with a stick. A satired attack on a church opens up the film. Everything in it is fabulous. This is a hard to find film, along with 2 other mexican western classics, “Blood and Guns” and “Villa Rides”. See it, you’ll laugh yourself silly. written by MovieMan-112
