Mimi Miceli Jr. is, the son of a Mafia don who was exiled back to Sicily. He wants to get back into the family business and transplant it from New York to Hollywood. After the kidnapping for ransom of a West Coast Mafia boss, Mimi is back in the "life." With the blessing of the local clan, Mimi attempts to takedown a Hollywood pimp named Superspook, who turns out to no easy mark.
Along with the theatrical premiere for Gone with the Pope, Grindhouse Releasing also debuted a brand new, pristine 35mm copy of Massacre Mafia Style. The new remastered version is now in dispute over who owns the rights to the film. It quite possibly might not be shown again in any format (Since one company owns the prints but another owns the rights to distribute). See more »
Duke Mitchell's THE EXECUTIONER looks like it was shot for fifty bucks over a long weekend. That said, it is still one of the very best American gangster films ever made. Alternately mean-spirited, tragic, poetic and downright hilarious, it pushes the envelope beyond the bounds of acceptability and offers no apologies. This is about as raw and honest as it gets, folks. An absolute must-see.
