Outlaw George Montgomery, who wants to marry Ann Robinson and adopt orphaned Bobby Clark, vows to go straight. Trouble is, Montgomery's old gang would prefer that he remain on the wrong side of the law. To press the issue, the gang kidnaps little Bobby, refusing to release the kid until Montgomery agrees to help them rob a bank. Our hero goes along with the villains but only until the opportunity arises to turn the tables. This agreeable formula western was later released as Duel in Durango.
A psychotic criminal couple kidnaps a random teenage couple. The woman rapes the male captive, and lets him watch his lover being raped by the man. They then plan to sacrifice the couple. When Bigas Luna was due to direct the film, Madonna, Javier Bardem and Dennis Hopper were his first choices to play Perdita, Romeo and Woody Dumas. Madonna deserted the project and Victoria Abril was supposed to replace her as Perdita, alongside Johnny Depp as Romeo and Ray Liotta as Dumas. Then Bigas Luna abandoned the production and Álex De la Iglesia was set to direct with the definitive cast: Rosie Pérez, Javier Bardem and James Gandolfini.
