After making a name for himself with a string of Blazing Gun Battles, The Stranger is hired by the townspeople to provide protection from three ruthless gunmen just out of jail. The Stranger quickly proceeds to paint the entire town bright red, rename it "Hell" and suppy divine retribution in a fiery, pulse-pounding climax of this acclaimed western shoot-em-up.
