Welcome to the next instalment of our sub-set of show exclusively looking at the Italian Collection releases of 88 Films.

88 Films have, for the last 2 years or so, have been on a tear releasing a torrent of Italian genre classics in high definition. I have been purchasing them and it should be no surprise to anyone, I have left them pretty much unwatched (what can I say...I'm a compulsive collector).

In order to watch the movies I buy, and of course create some quality content for you all Under the Stairs, I will be running through each of the movies on this bonus series between 1-2 movies a month depending on the TPUTS schedule.

So strap yourself in for a rollercoaster ride of alleged plagiarism, zombies, gore, rape, genital mutilation, sexism, revenge, gialli, cops and robbers, cannibalism, sci fi & more bush and titties than an annual subscription to Penthouse magazine.

Disc 11 in the collection is rare entry in the Poliziotteschi sub-genre of Italian cinema, rare in that it is directed by the man synonymous with the depravity of cannibalism in celluloid, Ruggero Deodato. Live Like A Cop Die Like A Man (1976) might have been his only police crime thriller but that doesn't mean that the blueprints of Deodato's future exploits aren't bubbling behind the surface.

The grading follows the Netflix rating style of 1 = Hated It, 2 = Didn’t Like It, 3 = Liked It, 4 = Really Liked It & 5 = Loved It

Live Like A Cop Die Like A Man

Duncan: 3.5

Up next on the Italian Collection Series is Disc 12 - Man From Deep River (1972).
