Death PromiseBuy Tickets
Police rookie Dave Speed (They Call Me Trinity star Terence Hill) gains super powers after being exposed to a radioactive chemical. Able to catch bullets with his teeth, survive a drop from a high rise building and make a balloon from bubble gum, Speed becomes the craziest cop this side of Inspector Clouseau. Framed for the murder of a brother in blue, Sgt. Willy Dunlop (Ernest Borgnine), Speed must use all his new talents to escape the electric chair. Directed by New Bev favorite Sergio Corbucci (Django, The Great Silence).

In the vicious tenements of back alley NYC, landlords will raise your rent, cut your power, flood hallways with filthy rats and even commit murder. But this time they messed with the wrong renters and there’s gonna be hell to pay. 42nd St grindhouses were filled with grimy exploitation flicks in the 1970s, catering to a crowd of drug dazed burnouts, damaged Vietnam vets, Black Belt Magazine subscribers and various other soldiers of cinematic fortune. And Death Promise must have played like gangbusters with its brutal mix of blaxploitation badassery, chop-socky action and stick-it-to-the-man attitude. When a popular, peace-loving senior is killed, his martial arts master son vows bloody revenge. With his perpetually shirtless sidekick, he’ll smash through every door and punch through every hired thug to find the men responsible. Jam packed with a fist-pumping, brain-smashing energy that will keep you riveted to the screen, plus more classic kung-fu sound effects, actors looking into camera and visible boom mics than you can count, Death Promise seriously delivers! And once you hear the funky theme song, you will NEVER forget it – that’s a promise!
