New DVDs of IL TRUCIDO E LO SBIRRO (1976) and LA BANDA DEL TRUCIDO (1976)

Another two excellent releases for Euro cult film fans upcoming - Umberto Lenzi's IL TRUCIDO E LO SBIRRO (FREE HAND FOR A TOUGH COP) and Stelvio Massi's LA BANDA DEL TRUCIDO (DESTRUCTION FORCE), to be released on November 22. Directed by two of the most popular polizieschi specialists around at the time, both films star Tomas Milian and haven't been released on DVD anywhere outside of Italy until now. Anolis is the label responsible for these discs, which will be distributed through e-m-s, and if their past efforts (one of them being a fantastic release of Robert Hossein's CEMETARY WITHOUT CROSSES) are anything to go by, these titles will be must-haves for anyone serious about Italian genre cinema.

LA BANDA DEL TRUCIDO will definitely include an English audio track, sadly, I wasn't able to confirm the same for IL TRUCIDO E LO SBIRRO, but I'll post DVD covers and specs of both discs anyway. Read on after the jump.
