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. The film was bodybuilder Steve Reeves' final film prior to his retirement. Reeves, who turned down the lead of A Fistful of Dollars financed and co-wrote the film himself upon seeing the successful box office returns of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns at the time. The film did poorly and Reeves retired from filmmaking that year.
