By the way - an interesting bit of useless trivia is that Grindhouse Releasing was actually set up by Sylvester Stallone's son Sage Stallone!.

I found a very old Grindhouse release schedule from last year - some of the titles have since been released:

CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST - 2 DISC
AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL
COPKILLERS
MAD RON'S PREVUES FROM HELL
MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE
TOUGH ONES
PIECES

[Quote=Whirlwind]polly has been more than helpful with his recommendations in this genre,if there are some more Merli films in this league I`d be glad to hear about them[/Quote]

You're more than welcome mate. :)

I'd say that the next few Merli films you should try and check out are:

(He plays the same character of 'Betti' in these two)
-Violent Rome. 1975. Marino Girolami
-Special Cop In Action. 1976. Marino Girolami

and
-From Corleone To Brooklyn. 1979. Umberto Lenzi


Also, what's a nice little touch, is the kid who gets crippled in 'Violent Naples' is also in the (very) highly recommended[B] 'Weapons of Death' [/B]as the same character but supposedly a few months later, as he has a limp throughout the whole film. I like these little nods that the Italians give to each others films.

Bloody hell mate that's a superb lobby!
'Manhunt' ('La Mala Ordina') is easily one of my favourite films of all time. Adorf's performance is unmissable!.
Thanks again Whirlwind.

I loved big racket one of my top favourites of the genre, but get the us release as im told the uk version is cut. Besides im sure the R1 release is anamorphic.
Manhunt is avalible from most public domain download sites for anyone who is interested and i have to agree with you both in saying it is a top flick.

You're dead right Chop - the rubbish R2 Vipco DVD of Big Racket trims the nasty rape scene.
Quality film and if you like Testi, try and catch his performances in 'Vai Gorilla', 'Nada' and 'What Have They Done To Solange?'. Cheers Whirlwind.

I have 'Manhunt In The City' - I know a lot of people confuse it with 'Manhunt' as both films star Henry Silva & Luciana Paluzzi. The Lenzi film is pretty hard to come by. There is a Norwegian VHS that is dubbed in English.
Henry Silva plays the good guy in this and takes the law into his own hands when police fail to bring to justice the murderers of his daughter. He rallies together a group of vigilantes to go after the bad guys. The few comments I've heard about the film have been unfairly negative but if you're a fan of Lenzi or Silva it is well worth having in your collection, I think it's a solid film. The soundtrack is a good one too.

Whirlwind is Blazing Magnum a Chinese film or an English film?

I can back Whirlwind up here and say that this is a fantastic film and pretty essential for fans of the Euro Crime genre. An awesome car chase which gives 'The French Connection' a good run for it's money, Giallo elements and a top soundtrack. Usually found for about £8-10 on eBay - don't pass it up if you see it!

Nice stills by the way mate. ;)
