On the latest episode of Twitch of the Death Nerve, Charles, Jon, and Samm dive into a particularly beloved cult movie topic — the spaghetti western. We focus on one of the absolute masterpieces of the subgenre, Sergio Corbucci’s The Great Silence (1968), where two bounty hunters (Klaus Kinski and Jean-Louis Trintignant) face off in the snowy wilderness. The discussion also includes how this is a perfect western for the winter season, why it is particularly bleak, plus director Sergio Corbucci’s career more broadly and his unique approach to the genre.
