Studio: Kino Lorber

Still considered to be one of more shocking crime films in Italy’s giallo cycle, Andrea Bianchi’s 1974 crime drama Cry of Prostitute (Quelli che contano, in its native tongue) arrives on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber in an uncut, HD edition.

The story centers on  Tony (Henry Silva, The Manchurian Candidate), a sadistic, cold-blooded hit man who is sent to Italy to settle a war between two rival criminal gangs. Caught in the middle is Margie (Barbara Bouchet, Sweet Charity), a former hooker now married to a mob boss. A shockingly perverse relationship between Tony and Margie adds fuel to the local criminal fires, setting off an very, er, lively run of violence.
