Swiss label Explosive Media has informed us that it plans to bring to Blu-ray two classic Italian spaghetti westerns: Giulio Petroni's Death Rides a Horse (1967), starring Lee Van Cleef, John Phillip Law, and Mario Brega, and Gianfranco Parolini's Sabata (1969), starring Lee Van Cleef, William Berger, and Ignazio Spalla.
The upcoming releases will have newly produced special features, bonus DVDs, and illustrated booklets. Both will be available for purchase in Switzerland and Germany later this year.
Fifteen years after four bandits massacred his family, a young man (John Phillip Law) seeks revenge. Several of the men responsible now hold positions of power in the new West, but one of the bandits (Lee van Cleef) is due to be released from prison. Having been framed by the others all those years ago, he is ready to exact bloody reprisals, and so forms an unholy alliance with the vengeance-seeking man whose family he helped destroy. Original Italian title: Da uomo a uomo.
Gunslinger Sabata (Lee van Cleef) is not a popular figure in the town of Daugherty. When he discovers that the town's kingpins are behind a bank heist, he becomes a marked man, unable to trust even his own friends. Sabata is soon headed for a final shoot-out from which there can be but one survivor. Original Italian title: Ehi amico... c'è Sabata, hai chiuso!
