DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING
NON SI SEVIZIA UN PAPERINO
1972, AGFA, 105 min, Italy, Dir: Lucio Fulci

Although best known for his ultra-gory zombie chunk-blowers, Lucio Fulci directed several superb gialli in the ’70s, many of which rivaled Dario Argento’s in style and aesthetic. When young boys start turning up dead in a countryside town, a news reporter (played by cult icon Tomas Milian) hopes to crack the case. With suspects ranging from a local witch to a nymphomaniac, the real answer may be even more shocking.


DJANGO KILL… IF YOU LIVE, SHOOT!
SE SEI VIVO SPARA
1967, 100 min, Italy, Dir: Giulio Questi

After climbing out of his grave, Tomas Milian finds things getting really weird: men clawing for the golden bullets in a still-breathing victim; torture by bats and lizards; death by molten metal... you name it. Prestigious documentarist Questi’s only Western. In English, with previously censored scenes in Italian with English subtitles.


COMPANEROS
VAMOS A MATAR, COMPANEROS
1970, 118 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Corbucci

Electrifying showdown between greats Franco Nero and Tomas Milian begins, but so does the flashback: Swedish gunrunner Nero has a trainload of arms, with his payoff locked in a safe that only pacifist rebel leader rival Fernando Rey can open. But joint-puffing Jack Palance and his flesh-loving falcon bear a grudge. In Italian with English subtitles.
