Massacre Mafia Style
Written & Directed by Duke Mitchell
I don’t know how many years I’ve been tracking down this particular trailers, but it feels like a very, very, very, very, very long time. I saw it at a midnight showing of Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond at the Sunset 5 and it stuck with me. Well, all the trailers that night really stuck with me: Dario Argento’s Deep Red freaked me out especially the puppet and Cannibal Ferox made me want to vomit and I want to believe they sandwiched Massacre Mafia Style in between Cannibal Ferox and Cannibal Holocaust. This trailer, for some reason, just stuck with me. Maybe it was the music or the rather simple style/story of the film: mafia guys or at least, we have to assume, mafia guys run around and shot people.
Upon further research of Duke Mitchell, the self proclaimed “Mr. Palm Springs” made another gangland film, Gone With The Pope:
Now, Gone With The Pope or at least the rights to the film are owned by Grindhouse Releasing….so who knows when it will be released on home video formats.
