"Angels on the Run", 2 May 2002

This film is a superb oddity released by the master of the Exploitation genre Harry Novak.

God needs new help, and the small ad's dont yield up many takers, so he sends down a group to his best to kill and return with fresh Angels and to do it by any means at hand. They use cars, guns and all manner of gadgets to up the roll call "upstairs"

"People Die to become Angels" God says (and god is Black) and he is just helping them along, God in this case is a well dressed and well mannered young man, with a slight sadistic bent. But hey he is God and he can do what he likes, cant he?

A great role by Vincent Schavelli tops of this superb oddity that should not be missed, a highly neglected 70's classic
