Cult maestro René Cardona, Jr. (Night of a 1,000 Cats, Rock 'n' Roll Wrestling Women vs. the Aztec Mummy) enters Peckinpah territory with the 1974 blood-soaked western melodrama Guns & Guts, starring Jorge Rivero, Pedro Armendariz, Rogelio Guerra and Zulma Faiad. Guns concerns a hired gun (Rivero) determined to head out on his last mission and then retire with a prostitute. The job involves rubbing out a sheriff who conceals his whereabouts in an ancient monastery. Thus begins a wicked, prolonged cat-and-mouse game between the two men, leading up to an operatically violent finale.
