"This is a movie that was never supposed to be made. Cox was on his way to Nicaragua to document a music tour, but due to escalating political tensions in the region, the tour was scrapped. With nothing else to do, Cox and the musical acts from the tour made Straight to Hell instead. The end result is a manic, punk rock take on the western.In 2010, Cox restored his offbeat classic. In the process he added some new effects and inserted six minutes of footage that was edited out of the original. The product of these adjustments is Straight to Hell Returns, the film Cox intended" -culture mob
