Audience Reviews for Cry Blood, Apache


Another Movie from the Mill Creek Mean Guns 20 Pack. Although I have seen some bad movies in my day this will certainly rank up there and could be the worst western I have ever encountered. The directing is poor and so are allot of the camera angles that were shot that are just flat out annoying. Another trait of the bad movie that they choose to over abuse here is the silly diabolical laughter that has to be doled out at every and any chance two characters come in contact with each other....I mean jeez, just say your piece and end the scene. The basis of the movie is this band of bad acting desperadoes party with a group of indians and discover gold. Believing they know were there is a serious stash of the stuff wipe out everyone, (with plenty of diabolic laughter) and take a hostage. Another Indian later shows up and upset by what he sees decides he is going to settle the score and provide some sense of revenge for us the viewer who's only crime was sitting down to watch the movie in the first place.
This movie if you can find it for a buck is worth a look if you are like myself that has to watch any movie he can find for a dollar. If your not then this is not for you. 1 1/2 Stars 2-17-14

Billed as a western, this is more of a 70's exploitation revenge flick. In this story, the band of awful, raping, greedy white folk have infiltrated an Apache tribe and want gold for themselves. Of course there's one in the band who just watches the atrocities and then decides to protect the girl - because why else - he's fallen for her. And as we progress she seemingly falls for him, but it's inexplicable why.
He brother begins stalking each one separately until the end where there's a big finale - one I can't buy for the life of me. The Apache woman makes a decision I simply cannot believe she'd make.

The dialogue is horrible, the acting just as bad and the editing is atrocious. There's also a lot of voice-overing that is really distracting. The music score goes from 70's thriller to love story in a blink of an eye. But the huge gaffe here is that these were Apaches, yet they spoke spanish. I googled and could not find any proof that they spoke any spanish even though they lived in Mexico to Arizona. Were they simply just---Mexican???
