  1. Finnish title "Näyttelijät" is some kind of mistake, it just means "Actors".

    "Verinen saalis" was Finnish theatrical title. Released as "Armottomat" on VHS.

    Robert Woods' hyperactive acting in this films must be seen to be believed. One of the most unbearable spaghetti westerns ever thanks to Woods' performance.
