The second feature has a slightly weaker story but for some reason I liked it better (I'm not sure why)
I actually ordered this for a friend without an amazon acct. so when it arrived I opened it and watched it before I brought it to him. Although I'm not a big fan of westerns, I found this to be above average. John Aston has a field day as Evil Roy taking every chance he gets to go overboard. The second feature has a slightly weaker story but for some reason I liked it better (I'm not sure why).
For a good laugh at a great price I would say go for it.

Funny! Funny! Funny!
By Daniel A. Adams
If you are intelligent, love great humor and can appreciate subtle jokes, Evil Roy Slade is the funniest SPOOF of American westerns you will ever watch. "It's been weeks since I shot a woman," is just one of many sly winks at western heroes that will leave you laughing from the first minute to the last minute. Great script. Superb performances. Until recently, it cost $175 to buy a copy so as soon as I saw it for less than $10 I jumped on it. Will send it to other friends in upcoming months. If you love John Astin, you will love ERS. Haven't ever see the Brothers O'Toole and am looking forward to it. If you don't get anything else out of this review, IT IS HILARIOUS. Buy it. You won't be sorry

"Never trust a pretty woman or a lonely midget"
By James D. Crabtree
Evil Roy Slade had the feeling of a 1970s farce, although never quite reaching the level of Young Frankenstein. With its renditions of "Stubby Index Finger," lawman Bing Bell (was that the door?) and various deadpan lines the movie was fun. John Astin was great in this, playing a character much like Gomez Addams... except not as nice of course. The Brothers O'Toole was not quite as good, not quite as many laughs but still not a bad film. Brothers O'Toole had more of a feeling of "television pilot" written all over it.
