Rostron plays down-on-his-luck Rudy, a young man who decides to leave
the country when he gets into trouble with some local gangsters. After
visiting a buxom ex-girlfriend for a booty call and a 'loan,' Rudy
hops on a plane for Africa where he looks up his half-brother Franz, the
leader of a team of bloodthirsty mercenaries. Franz and his men are slaughtering
rebel natives, raping the women and pocketing as many diamonds as possible.
Rudy hopes to get his hands on the diamonds; however, his plans are temporarily
scrapped when brother Franz is captured by the rebels. In desperation,
Rudy joins the mercenaries on a rescue mission.
note: this movie is vile. It's a racist, sleazy piece of trash that
is absolutely jaw-dropping in its inhumanity. Here is a parade of nastiness
which features an inordinate amount of torture killing and sexual brutality.
It is quite a departure from other Mario Siciliano films.
He is better
known for his Spaghetti Westerns (TRINITY
AND SARTANA) and Italian horror films (EVIL
EYE). But none of them showed this level of unbridled nihilism.
After this project, he went on to dabble in erotica - or perhaps more
correctly, sexploitation - with a series of soft and hardcore titles like
LOVE (1982). Most of his sex films were signed as "Lee Castle."
Many of his films from the late seventies and '80s [like this one] starred
Karin Well who had gained some notoriety from her role in BURIAL
GROUND. Mr Siciliano died at age 62 in 1987.
Italian film in English language with burnt Finnish subtitles; widescreen
