Anyone else like this?Just got a nice lbx upgrade from Lefteris which blows away the terrible fullscreen travesty i had before,it also appears to be fully uncut.Good soundtrack as well by the de Angelis brothers as Oliver Onions with one song which reminds me of their opening titles music to Castellari's western TEDEUM,anyone got the soundtrack cd/lp?

What's that DVD cover?

I really love the opening scene where they put that cop in the coffin! Great, inspired stuff  ::)
The music score is memorable. Some of the car chase footage was later edited into Alfonso Brescia's THE NEW GODFATHERS. I also like the finale of this one... downbeat, just the way it should be.

Just something i found on the net,think it's the LVFW boot.

Yeah you'd think he'd have had more sense then to go asking them to open up a coffin at a mafia funeral :-\
This opening also reminded me of CRY OF THE PROSTITUTE with the drugs being stashed/smuggled inside dead bodies.

We tried to license the soundtrack for a CD release, but apparantly a new German label beat us to it... don't know when it's gonna be out, but at least it's in the works!  ::)

Not sure as I only got the tape yesterday. I've backed it up to my DVD recorders HD so I'll check it out when I get home.

Just had a look at the VHS and it's slightly letterboxed, roughly 1.77:1, lovely copy as well.

How wide is your copy Stephen?
