Matalo! (also spelled as Mátalo) is a 1970 Spaghetti Western film directed by Italian filmmaker Cesare Canevari.

The film is considered among the most original westerns ever produced in Italy. It is characterized from a greater weight given to psychology over action, an almost total lack of dialogues, an innovative soundtrack by Mario Migliardi and the use by the lead character of a boomerang as his only weapon.
