There just isn't enough peyote, wooden coffins, or bullets on this earth to properly relate to the madness of grindhouse shoot-'em-up The Legend of God's Gun. This low-budget spaghetti western was created, and more importantly, scored, by Los Angeles' Spindrift—a band that thrives on the style and decadence of the wildest towns in the west.
Set in the fictional—and bordering on farcical—dusty town of Playa Diablo, the very loose storyline of God's Gun follows a slew of heavily armed folks who shoot, screw, and shoot some more amid the desolate tumbleweeds and saloons. God's Gun basks in the premise of taking place in a setting with no morals and plenty of weaponry, and while it's far from a cinematic masterpiece, given its grindhouse tag, you should know not to expect The Magnificent Seven. Instead you have characters like a creepy preacher and a callous sheriff, plus some campy '70s-style filmmaking, and enough druggy moments to get a secondhand buzz from the comfort of your theater seat.
Director Mike Bruce and actor Kirpatrick Thomas in attendance at the 9:15 pm show on Friday, July 18.
