Legendary character actor Michael Berryman is coming to Portland, and we are pre-gaming with Ruggero Deodato’s ultra-violent jungle epic CUT AND RUN (1984)! Originally written for the screen by Wes Craven, INFERNO in DIETTA, as it was titled in Italy, is an absolutely unhinged mondo/action/thriller hybrid filmed primarily in Venezuela that leaves no taboo or offensive cinematic trope unmolested. An ambitious young journalist (Lisa Blount) and her cameraman assistant (Leonard Mann) uncover a bizarre connection between a messianic Jonestown massacre cultist (Richard Lynch), an escalating tribal drug war led by a silent assassin (Michael Berryman) and a TV executive’s missing son (Willie Aames). Claudio Simonetti of Goblin provides a perfectly jarring disco synth score that drives this sweaty cocaine-fueled grindhouse classic completely over the edge. Enter the green inferno…if you dare!
