Crudely made, but weirdly watchable
If it were possible to cross a typical spaghetti western with an independent American production of the same period made for the southern drive-in market, most likely you would get a movie like "Paid In Blood". As much as I love spaghetti westerns AND drive-in movies, I have to admit that this particular low (REALLY low) budget western has a bunch of shortcomings. It's unbelievably cheap, from the cinematography that looks like it was shot by an 8 mm camera to the minimum set decoration. (I can only imagine how worse it would look had the filmmakers not had access to sets built for other spaghetti westerns!) The scripting is often simple-minded, the acting often broad, the editing is crude, the dubbing is clumsy, and... must I go on? Sounds like a really bad movie, eh? Well, it is, but at the same time I was somewhat fascinated by what I was seeing. Seeing the filmmakers making their own spaghetti western with limited funds and resources is interesting. As bad as the movie gets, you'll keep watching to see how they got a finished product from start to finish. Don't get me wrong, this movie is definitely not for casual fans of westerns, but spaghetti western fans may find this of interest to see that not all spaghetti westerns were made with ample budgets and style. Although I definitely don't want to watch this western again, in a way I'm glad I did see it once.
