We’re getting Wild In The Streets with Umberto Lenzi’s gleefully exploitative 1974 crime thriller ALMOST HUMAN (aka THE DEATH DEALER, aka Milano odia: la polizia non può sparare). Featuring a stand-out slimy performance from Tomas Milian, the film follows small-time scumbag Giulio Sacchi as he goes on a spree of murder and mayhem throughout Milan while tough cop Walter Grandi (Henry Silva) is hot on his trail. It’s filled with chaos and bloodshed, but is it fascist? Let’s talk about it.

On this episode of Cinema Fantastic (a trip to the genre film festivals around the world) we’re traveling to the 2009 London Frightfest film festival in London, England to check out two ultra-violent heavy-hitters: Dario Argento’s GIALLO and The Mo Brothers’ MACABRE. The tenth anniversary of Frightfest, 2009 marked a big expansion in terms of the festival, which featured plenty of unique, international offerings. Was Argento’s Adrien Brody-starring thriller a return to form? Did The Mo Brothers (Killers, Headshot) succeed with their Indonesian spin on The Texas Chain Saw Massacre? Who reigns supreme? Let’s find out!

On a landmark episode of WE DO OUR STUNTS we continue our chronological look at the career of Jackie Chan with his first great movie: 1978’s SNAKE & CRANE ARTS OF SHAOLIN! Directed by Chen Chi Hwa (who would later collaborate with Jackie on POLICE STORY), the film is about a marital arts student (played by Jackie) who is guarding “Eight Steps of the Snake and Crane”, a martial arts manual. Filled with excellent choreography and a sarcastic sense of humor, we’re inching ever closer to the combination of kung-fu and comedy that would turn Jackie into an international star. Check it out!
