Guilio Sacchi, an underworld leader in crime, is about to rise above the rank of mafia hit-man to the most savage killer in Milan. He kidnaps the daughter of a wealthy business man, planning to live a life of luxury with the ransom he collects. In the course of obtaining the money, Guilio finds it necessary to mercilessly slaughter anyone who gets in his way as the city's death toll increases by the minute. Walter Grandi is a frustrated police chief who's seen too many innocent people die by Guilio's hands. Determined to exterminate Guilio and his men, Grandi attempts to convict the vicious criminal only to realize he can never obtain the necessary proof. Finally, Grandi must transgress the rules of his profession to stop Sacchi's ruthless reign of terror.
Not since PSYCHO, CLOCKWORK ORANGE and DEATHWISH has there been a motion picture that will force you to sit through such stark brutality and moral abuse. You will be fascinated and spellbound by the bizarre terror of a man without a heart... without a soul... without a conscience.

was OK. Milian's conditions were reasonable so he got the part. See more
