"Get lost, you cheap harlot!
One thing that Umberto Lenzi (Seven Bloodstained Orchids, Violent Naples) knows how to do is make awesome crime films and Syndicate Sadists is no exception. What makes this film different from the tons of other flicks of its ilk is that it is actually fun and lighthearted (no rape scenes!). Tomas Milian (Almost Human) plays Rambo, a no-nonsense bad ass motherfucker who takes a stand against the thugs that killed his rent-a-cop brother. Familiar Italian faces include Luciano Pigozzi of Blood and Black Lace, Evelyn Stewart of Case of the Scorpion's Tail, and Joseph Cotten of Baron Blood. The ultra funkay soundtrack by composer Franco Micalizzi is truly a thing of beauty.
