Fernando Di Leo's SHOOT FIRST, DIE LATER (1974) from Raro Video 5/28

Finally! Raro Video are back in action (thanks to new distributor Kino) and their first title out the gate is Fernando Di Leo's ultra-rare poliziotteschi, SHOOT FIRST, DIE LATER (1974)! Luc Merenda is a dirty cop who puts his father's life in jeopardy when he attempts to secure an evidence file for some gangster friends. It's a Di Leo flick, so things obviously don't go as planned, and soon enough Luc shows just how dirty he can get. Impossible to find in decent quality prior, Raro promise a new transfer from negative elements, supplemented with some cool featurettes.

Preorder:
DVD: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20
Blu: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20

According to Raro's facebook page, their second Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection blu ray set is coming the end of June, including this film along with NAKED VIOLENCE and THE KIDNAP SYNDICATE. I've canceled my preorder for this single disc and will just order the set.

Very cool! Thanks for the info Bruce. I'll definitely pass on the single release and get the box.

Same here, although the cover art for the single release is pretty badass...

It's Time for Crime as Raro Video (and new distributor Kino) release a second box of gritty classics with FERNANDO DI LEO: THE ITALIAN CRIME COLLECTION 2!

Kicking things off is the ultra-rare poliziotteschi SHOOT FIRST, DIE LATER (1974)! Luc Merenda is a dirty cop who puts his father's life in jeopardy when he attempts to secure an evidence file for some gangster friends. It's a Di Leo flick, so things obviously don't go as planned, and soon enough Luc shows just how dirty he can get. Impossible to find in decent quality prior, Raro promise a new transfer from negative elements.

Next up is NAKED MASSACRE (1969), where a group of booze-fueled young toughs are manipulated into the titular assault. A jaded police inspector is on the case, and through interrogations believes someone behind the scenes orchestrated the crime... but why? Susan Scott shows up for no good reason.

Lastly, the KIDNAP SYNDICATE (1975) swipe two kids off the street, one being mechanic Luc Merenda's son. When the parent of the other tyke tries to negotiate, things go bad real quick, and Luc is left with nothing but revenge on his mind.

Another must-have box set from Raro, with new hi-def transfers and multiple featurettes.

DVD: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20

My copy of "Shoot first, Die Later" shipped last monday, hoping it will arrive within the next two days

Though this is my first time ordering from RaroVideo, so so I donīt know how fast or slow their international shipping is?
