A First Class Viewing Experience
We here at Fractured Visions adore the work of Sergio Martino: His films are unpretentious, unassuming and wholly entertaining! During his peak years of the 1970s his work was lost in the noise of the booming Italian film industry, his ability to adapt to different genres meant that his cinematic ‘voice’ was never cemented due to his chameleon-esque power to blend into to any given genre; unlike his more celebrated colleagues like Dario Argento.
We believe his work is long overdue re-appraisal.
HANDS OF STEEL
Paco Queruak (Daniel Greene, Deadly Intruder) is the product of insane industrialist, Francis Turner (John Saxon, Nightmare on Elm Street). 70% android, 30% human, Paco was created to serve one purpose; to assassinate an experimental scientist who has found ecological ways around much of Turner’s business. When Paco realises that the target is a good man, he’s unable to fulfil his mission. With the hunter now the hunted, Turner sends an army after his once prized creation, but it’s going to take more than that to stop Paco Queruak.
2019: AFTER THE FALL OF NEW YORK
After the bomb drops, the world is divided into two fractions; on the one side are the evil Euracs, and on the other, the Pan-American Confederacy. Parsifal (Michael Sopkiw, Blastfi ghter) is sent by the President of the Confederacy (Edmund Purdom, Absurd) into the wasteland that was once New York; in an effort to rescue the last fertile female on the planet, the beautiful Giara (Valentine Monnier, Monster Shark). Extracting the key to mankind’s survival will not be easy; as they battle mutants, treacherous Confederacy personnel and the lethal Euracs that infest the barren and brutal landscape.
Fracture Visions are pleased to bring two of Sergio’s 80s titles to the big screen for his work to be appreciated and discovered by a whole new audience, or established fans who may be unfamiliar with his 80s offerings when Sergio moved award from horror/thriller territory and slam-dunked into sci-fi and action – this is not to be missed!
