Maestro of mayhem Umberto Lenzi (CANNIBAL FEROX, OASIS OF FEAR) takes you on a tour of Italy’s mean streets in this hyper-violent, white-knuckle 1970s crime classic. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, Shameless proudly presents ALMOST HUMAN…restored, uncut and unhinged!
Following their wonderful releases of The Church and The Sect, UK’s Shameless Films has announced that they will be releasing Umberto Lenzi’s Almost Human on region B Blu-ray on April 24th! This will be the world wide debut of the film on Blu-ray so if you’re a Lenzi fan (and who isn’t?!) and you don’t have a region free player you may want to look into getting one before April. Like other releases from Shameless, this will come with some solid special features including a brand-new interview with Lenzi. Best of all, however, is the fact that the film will be restored and uncut! Pre-order your copy today!
Tomas Milian stars as Giulio Sacchi, a sadistic petty crook who aspires to criminal greatness. With his gang of impressionable weirdos in tow, Sacchi shanghais the pretty young daughter of a wealthy businessman but hardboiled cop Grandi (Henry Silva – ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX) is in hot pursuit. The dogged detective is all that stands between Sacchi’s gang and the ransom money, and he’s the only hope their teenage hostage has got…
ALMOST HUMAN is a notoriously nasty crime thriller, with a stand-out score from Ennio Morricone, presented for the first time ever in glorious HD and restored from original vault materials. If you like your cops badass, and your villains even badder, this is one high-octane, edge-of-the-seat experience you’ll not want to miss!
