The Rider of the Skulls Directed by Alfredo Salazar

What are people saying?

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film The Rider of the Skulls

    The particular magic of Alfredo Salazar’s stories sees itself expressed into this; his first directorial effort. Even though many would question the value of its B-movie tropes, the film’s third episode has formally brilliant sequences. In particular the first fight between el Charro and el Jinete in which the montage creates a seriously dramatic tone, thrilling action, yet retaining the film's 'fun' spirit.
