Editorial Reviews

A SOUTH AFRICAN EXPLOITATION CLASSIC! ROUGHER AND TOUGHER THAN ANYTHING YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE! Master criminals meet violent death in Johannesburg, South Africa, a city wrought with organized crime. Steve Chaka (Ken Gampu), an ambitious news reporter, learns that these deaths are from the hands of an all-black vigilante group known only as War on Crime. Teaming up with Lt. Ben Deel (Nigel Davenport, CHARIOTS OF FIRE, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS) of the local police department, Chaka investigates anonymous tips regarding future hits and ends up fighting for his life to uncover the truth behind the vigilante killings!

DEATH OF A SNOWMAN is an action-filled South African grindhouse gem. Exploitation fans will enjoy the outrageous violence, erratic editing, funky disco soundtrack and jaw dropping dubbing. Also known as SOUL PATROL and BLACK TRASH.

Chaka (Ken Gampu) is a reporter who is phoned in crime locations. It seems a vigilante (who we later find out is the Snowman (Madala Mphahlele) and lookS like the guy on the DVD cover) is killing bad guys. Chaka writes stories almost praising the killer for cleaning up the scum. The police suspect Chaka is involved.

There is a lot of shooting, wide lapels, whack-a-da music but no Pamela Grier or anything that resembles her or Richard Roundtree.The film shows us a sexist NYC workplace, but that is about as far as the excitement goes. No swearing, or nudity. One implied early sex scene. The sound man did a fairly bad job too.

Bad picture and sound quality, and the plot not interesting like I expected, rather simple and boring. Didn't show any interesting big-city Johannesburg street scenes either.

In no way is this an exploitation or blaxploitation film. It has no nudity and no sleaze. For a movie made in the 1970's it alright. The acting isn't bad, Not a lot of ganster violence. The way the violence takes place, it doesn't really make the movie seem like a true gangster gem. Overall not a bad film to watch.
