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.

Let’s find out!

On HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? we look at the life and career of beloved oddball character actor Steve Buscemi, and on this episode we go all the way back to 1987 and Peter Ily Huemer’s neon-soaked noirish “thriller” KISS DADDY GOODNIGHT! Featuring Uma Thurman making her feature film debut, as well as forgotten Dillon sibling Paul Dillon, the movie is meandering, ugly and tedious, but manages to capture a uniquely grimy aesthetic at times. Also, STEVE BUSCEMI is in it! CHECK IT OUT!
