Product Description

An extremely rare Italian action film available for the 1st time in the world on DVD(special 2 discs edition), uncut

A must have for all fans of Italian action film

SYNOPSIS

A doctor’s wife is slashed in a city park while thugs carry out smash and grab heists and a teenage girl is strangled by a seeming sex maniac. This is a job for "The Avenger" (George Hilton) – by day a decorated police detective, by night judge, jury and executioner for the scum of Turin.

DOUBLE GAME is a fully-loaded thriller in the vein of DEATH WISH and MAGNUM FORCE, depicting a world brimming with enough evil to ruin Dirty Harry’s day. Featuring a swank EuroCult score by Stelvio Cipriani.

NoShame presents this obscure title from the end of the poliziotteschi cycle for the first time on DVD in the US, uncut and in anamorphic widescreen in a 2 DVD collector's edition along with its rarest-of-the-rare 1980 sequel... for which all original elements no longer exist!
