Giulio Sacchi is a psychotic small-time thief with a chip on his shoulder who’s leaving a slew of dead bodies all over Milan. Now he’s got a plan to make a quick and easy 500 million Lira: Kidnap the daughter of a local billionaire and hold her for ransom. And nothing is going to stop Giulio from getting his money – not even Inspector Walter Grandi, Milan’s toughest cop who’s hot on Sacchi’s trail. Now, the police are racing to find the kidnapped girl and stop the ticking time bomb that is Giulio Sacchi before he explodes and leaves more death and carnage in his wake.
ALMOST HUMAN is the gritty and exciting polizia thriller from director Umberto Lenzi (NIGHTMARE CITY, MAN FROM DEEP RIVER) and screenwriter Ernesto Gstaldi (MY NAME IS NOBODY, THE CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TAIL). Filled with tough, brutal and bloody action sequences, it contains powerful performances from Tomas Milan (TRAFFIC, BOCCACCIO 70) as the “almost human” Sacchi and screen legend Henry Silva (OCEAN’S ELEVEN, THE TALL T, and ABOVE THE LAW) as Grandi, with a memorable score from legendary composer Ennio Morricone (THE UNTOUCHABLES, ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST). Also starring Ray Lovelock (LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE) and Anita Strindberg (WHO SAW HER DIE?), ALMOST HUMAN is a tough-as-nails entertainmeant that’s almost human and always thrilling.
NoShame Films is proud to present ALMOST HUMAN for the first time on video in the U.S. in its original widescreen aspect ratio, digitally re-mastered from the original negative, uncut and uncensored, the only way it should be!
