Movie Info

In the post-Civil War West, a young boy is rescued from a massacre by Protestants who instill the value of pacifism in the young boy. But it's only when he chases after his missing step-sister that he discovers a skill for gunslinging, takes on the name Requiscant, and re-enters the world of violence denied to him as a child. This spaghetti Western also includes a cameo from director Pier Paolo Pasolini as a renegade priest.

Critic Reviews for Requiescant (Kill and Pray)

All Critics (2)

  • Thanks to the power of spaghetti western conventions, you don't need to know the history to get the message, and you don't need to embrace the message to appreciate the brutal justice.

  • A luxuriantly brutal film with a thematic fixation on conflicting moral codes.

Audience Reviews for Requiescant (Kill and Pray)

  • Sep 26, 2010
    Starts strong enough, then it gets a bit too carried away with it's political agenda. Castel's character forgets about his initial reason to find Ferguson, and the speeches about aristocrats and the proletarian fill the second half. There are some great sequences, including a game of "rope", and Ortolani's score gives a good mood. Mark Damon's villain is cool, dracula cape and everything, more polishing in the story and this could had been even better.
