Cop Killers - Retro Screening

SCREENING APPROVED BY PRODUCER/ACTOR BILL OSCO
SHOT ENTIRELY IN TUCSON, AZ
1973, USA, 93 Min
Exploitation, Action, Drama
Directed by Walter Cichy
Cast: Jason Williams, Bill Osco, Diane Keller
Two young longhaired drug dealers, one of them the extremely nasty and vicious Ray (Jason Williams, FLESH GORDON himself) along with his slightly more humane partner Alex (Bill Osco, who also served as producer), go on a killing spree after they run into a handful of cops at a roadblock.
Reportedly produced on an impossible $50,000 budget on location in Tucson Arizona, COP KILLERS is by no means a great or polished affair, but its generous portion of screen violence and the anticipation of what the immoral duo will do or who they will rub out next, make this appealing enough for followers of 1970s drive-in trash. Shot on Super 16 and later blown up to 35mm (much like LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, and DONT LOOK IN THE BASEMENT from the same period), this is pure entertainment gold. In one of his first film jobs, future Oscar winner Rick Baker supplied the gory make-up on the various victims, including gushing stabbings, flowing gunshots and mutilated body parts.
Limited tickets available.
