Description: Gianni Garko returns as the Holy Ghost, a supernatural gunfighter dressed in white and with a dove sitting on his shoulder.

Description: This entry in the Italian crime film cycle of the ’70s presents an interesting take on the format. Emergency Squad seems unusually postmodern for its time because it places an equal amount of dramatic focus on its hero and its villain. The hero part is fulfilled by Ravelli (Tomas Milian), a cop consumed with the desire to get revenge on the crook who shot his wife to death during a robbery. The crook in question is Marseilles (Gastone Moschin), who is trying to assemble funds for his own retirement. As the revenge scenario moves toward the inevitable confrontation, Emergency Squad retains interest because it paints both leads in a complex fashion — Ravelli’s obsessive quest makes him as scary as he is sympathetic and the seemingly icy Marseilles reveals some surprisingly vulnerable sides to his character.

Description: Released in Italy in 1977 as GODZILLA, but often referred to by fans and the director himself as “COZZILLA”— stands as a real oddity in the long and often bizarre history of the Godzilla franchise. The film is worth a look just out of pure curiosity value alone.Unfortunately, COZZILLA is a hard film to find… at least in decent shape. Many Godzilla fans in America first heard about Luigi Cozzi’s colorized version of GODZILLA from Steve Ryfle’s book Japan’s Favorite Mon-Star: The Unauthorized Biography of the Big G, which was published back in 1999. In the years since then, copies of this obscure film have been traded from collector to collector. But, sadly, Cozzi’s GODZILLA has never been released on home video in Italy (or anywhere else for that matter) and no longer plays on television, so the only options currently available to fans are blurry, distorted, and incomplete multi-generation copies sourced from a VHS recording of an old Italian TV broadcast. For now, COZZILLA remains a true Godzilla rarity.
Description: Dallesandro gives a shockingly good performance in this gritty, hard-hitting crime flick. He plays a hungry young buck who aspires to be a career criminal. He starts out working at a warehouse for a gangster where he helps to relocate illegal contraband, and because of his ruthlessness and dependability he begins to ascend the ladder of organized crime. Of course, the more powerful he becomes, the more “Climbers” come out of the shadows to take his place.
