I like this movie. According to the 2 films I have seen from Vari, he had some talent as director and obviously the ability to make something out of nothing, because Pray for the living... was made with a very small budget. The 2nd half cries for wide desert landscapes, but Vari had only a gravel pit.
Also one of Kinski's better contributions to the genre, and one of the few where he plays a lead.
No great SW, but entertaining nevertheless.
Another SW from him is The Last Killer, and it's even better.
