the final days of the Vietnam War, someone is killing the U.S. officers

Italian films under his belt] died June 2016; Ragman Puppo died May
1994; cult actor Werner Pochath [best known for MOSQUITO
THE RAPIST and TERROR
EXPRESS] passed from liver cirrhosis in 1993 at age 54; director
Bruno Mattei, one of the European exploitation gurus with numerous
contributions to cult cinema, died from a brain tumor in 2007.
the late Eighties, American TV actress Candice Daly relocated to Italy
where she made this film and Claudio Fragasso's classic zombi movie
DEATH (1989) among others. She returned to the States ten years
later for a major role in the soap opera The Young and the Restless.
In December 2004, her body was found in an abandoned building in downtown
Los Angeles. She had died from "drug intoxication complicated by
severe steatohepatitus." Ms Daly was 38 years old.
