Default SHAM032 - Almost Human

You’ve been asking for it for a long while now and Shameless have listened! On 18 July 2011, Shameless will be releasing Umberto Lenzi’s classic crime film, Almost Human for the first time on UK DVD!

Guilio Sacchi (Tomas Milian) is a small-time hood disillusioned with the crime syndicate for which he works. Looking to make some big money fast, he and some friends kidnap the beautiful Marilý (Laura Belli), the daughter of a billionaire and demand 500 million Lira as ransom. However, hot on his heels is Inspector Grandi (Henry Silva) a hardened cop who only becomes more hell-bent on catching Guilio and his gang with each corpse he finds! Director Lenzi reflects on the “Years of Lead” in Italy, a time when terrorists caused chaos and police action was judged as deficient. Casey Scott at describes it as “one of the best Italian crime films ever made.”

Almost Human is one of Umberto Lenzi’s (Oasis of Fear) best and most highly-regarded films, featuring a standout performance from Milian and score composed by Ennio Morricone. This Shameless Screen Entertainment release will be a must-have for all lovers of Euro-crime and polizieschi movies. So keep your eyes peeled for more info and artwork as it comes up over the next few months.

PS. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that this release skips SHAM031. This is because SHAM031 is a super-top-secret release which has taken longer than expected to organise, due to the hard work Shameless and the film’s creators are putting in. You’ll have to wait to find out what it is but, trust me, it’ll be worth it! Please note: I have set up this thread for you to speculate as to the nature of SHAM031 so please don’t discuss it in this thread which is for Almost Human.
