Movie Info

Not a sequel to director Alex Cox's quirky 1987 spaghetti western homage but instead a new version of the film featuring additional footage cut from the original release, a new color scheme, and some gruesome new digital effects, Straight to Hell Returns offers a cruel new vision of a quirky cult classic. In their exhausted bid to catch up on some sleep, black-suited hit men Norwood (Sy Richardson), Sims (Joe Strummer) and Willy (Dick Rude) miss their target, and realize their there will be hell … More

Critic Reviews for Straight to Hell

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5) | DVD (8)

It's a very weird vibe, and it requires one to not only accept, but also embrace, boredom. If the movie has one theory, it's this: if you stare long enough at a certain spot, something weird and cool is bound to happen.

Audience Reviews for Straight to Hell

If I can't say anything else good about this film I can say that it is a boldly strange trip.

"Straight to Hell" starts with three hitmen, Norwood(Sy Richardson), Simms(Joe Strummer), and Willy(Dick Rude, who also co-wrote), brutally murdering a bed, instead of their intended target. Fearing for their physical safety, they hightail it out of town with Norwood's pregnant girlfriend Velma(Courtney Love), but not before a little fundraising at the local bank. It's a shame they did not also buy a new car while they were at it because their old car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Eventually, they stumble upon a town full of desperadoes, two of whom they rescue from bounty hunters.

The quirky neo-punk spaghetti western "Straight to Hell" may have one of the strangest casts of all time(now, there's an idea for a list), made up largely of musicians that also includes Dennis Hopper, Grace Jones and Jim Jarmusch.(And somehow I missed Elvis Costello.) Of everybody, Joe Strummer makes the best impression. The eclectic cast and a certain chaotic energy are what makes this at least watchable, as director Alex Cox almost stumbles across a sign of intelligent life and thought.
