A Long Ride from Hell, in the original Italian known as Vivo per la tua morte (literally "I Live For Your Death!"), is a 1968 film directed by Camillo Bazzoni. It was based on the novel Judas Gun by Gordon D. Shirreffs.[1] The film was bodybuilder Steve Reeves' final film prior to his retirement. Reeves financed the film himself upon seeing the successful box office returns of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns at the time, but the film did poorly and Reeves retired from filmmaking that year. Reeves portrays cowboy Mike Sturges, who, along with his younger brother, Roy, are sentenced to Yuma Penitentiary on a trumped-up train robbery charge. Both endure cruel treatment before Mike escapes to exact revenge on their enemies.



Wild East originally released this in a limited edition R0 NTSC DVD in 2008. In 2011 Code Red, after settling a distribution rights dispute with Wild East, re-released the film with Wild East's special features, an interview with Mimmo Palmara and a feature with Steve Reeves. Both are out-of-print.
