On this episode of WILD IN THE STREETS we’re getting back to basics with Tomas Milian in the revenge thriller EMERGENCY SQUAD from 1974. Milian plays Tomas Ravelli, an Interpol agent who is hell-bent on tracking down the criminals who (inadvertently) murdered his wife, and is – unsurprisingly – willing to break the rules in order to do it. He’s kind of a jerk! We also chat about the career of the late Ruggero Deodato, feel conflicted about all the fascist cops in Eurocrime movies and SO MUCH MORE. Check it out!

On a brand new episode of WILD IN THE STREETS, we’re going One Step Beyond with Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro in the sleaze-filled home invasion thriller MADNESS from director Fernando Di Leo. Featuring plenty of uncomfortable nudity and most of the soundtrack to Caliber 9, MADNESS has hunky Joe terrorizing a married couple (along with the wife’s seductress sister) while trying to uncover some stolen riches stashed in their fireplace. All that, a giant poster of John Travolta that looms menacingly over the proceedings. Is it any good? Listen and find out!

We’re getting WILD IN THE STREETS with Charles Bronson and Telly Savalas in the New Orleans-set Eurocrime classic VIOLENT CITY from 1970. The plot involves Bronson’s retired assassin Jeff Heston getting revenge on those who left him for dead, including the woman he loves (played, naturally, by Jill Ireland). Sergio Sollima’s VIOLENT CITY features some dynamite action sequences, some terrific performances and some disturbing misogyny that left us – wait for it – conflicted. It also features a wonderful soundtrack from Ennio Morricone, that the movie takes great advantage of. CHECK IT OUT!

We’re getting Wild in the Streets with Franco Nero in Enzo G. Castellari’s 1974 Eurocrime revenge thriller STREET LAW! Starring Nero as an engineer who finds his safety (and masculinity) threatened by a post office robbery and decides to take the (street) law into his own hands. Badly! More nuanced than one might expect, and featuring a rocking soundtrack, there’s still plenty of action and – of course – explicit violence. Check it out!

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 the PREMIERE episode of WILD IN THE STREETS: A EUROCRIME PODCAST we’re looking at the two films which kick off Roberto Curti’s essential book Italian Crime Filmography, 1968-1980: 1968’s Bandits in Milan, as well as 1968’s Bandits In Rome! The first film takes a documentary approach to a real-life incident that took place in Milan, Italy in 1967 while the second film starts John Cassavetes as a bandit with a heart of gold who is locked away while his partner goes on a violent rampage.
