A mysterious man trudges into town dragging a mud-stained coffin behind him. This man is Django (Franco Nero). After he saves Maria (Loredana Nusciak) from certain death, Django finds himself in the middle of a war between Mexican revolutionaries and a band of sadistic racists led by the fanatical Major Jackson (Eduardo Fajardo). In the face of overwhelming odds, Django has a plan: to exact revenge while pitting enemy against enemy. Featuring the addictively catchy title song performed by Rocky

Watch It Now
Sergio Corbucci's Django is trapped between two states (literally Texas and Mexico, more metaphorically life and death) even as he brings a new (a)morality and sadism to a gunslinging figure of old America.
Sergio Corbucci's film is notable not only for the artistry of its construction, but also for the underlying anger that fuels its political agenda.
Flavorful enough to convince us that its multitude of sequels was no fluke.
[VIDEO ESSAY] With an emphasis on gory brutality, Corbucci introduced a blood-soaked drifter closely modeled after Clint Eastwood's iconic character from Leone's films, but with one clear difference - Django drags a coffin with him everywhere he goes.
When Tarantino's bulging eyes first laid eyes on Django...one can understand his affection for the film's memorable iconography - the dragged coffin, the hand crushed by a rifle butt; stylisation that made a two dime plot more colourful, more memorable.
It's a simple story, but it sticks with you because of what it says about humanity shackled by the structures it built: government, religion, commerce.
One of the greatest of all Spaghetti Westerns.
- Django: That's all the help I need.
- Django: How many men you got left? Tongue tied....or too afraid to tell me?
