This graphically violent western features disturbing scenes of rape and torment. It was originally filmed in a triple-X version titled Hard On the Trail and later cut down to this soft-core version that still features much blood and nudity. The film stars the once popular western hero Lash LaRue, who made a sad comeback after a 19-year absence from films with this exploitative pile of road apples. The story centers on LaRue who plays a ruthless sadist hell-bent on learning the location of another cowboy's secret gold mine. To get the map, LaRue has his thugs torture and graphically rape the cowboy's daughter. Things look bleak until the heroic fiance of one of the daughters shows up and kills the thugs. His love is killed in the ensuing gun fight, so he takes the surviving daughter and they ride out for bloody revenge against the wicked gang leader. Tragedy for all ensues.
