It’s late at night. In the notorious Bois de Boulogne Forest just outside Paris, a group of transsexual prostitutes offer their services to passing motorists. Suddenly we hear the roar of a powerful motorcycle engine kicked into life. Headlights pierce the darkness of the forest. Two bikes appear, their riders dressed in black leather, faces masked, heavily armed with assault rifles.

The prostitutes scatter, chased by the riders who slaughter them in a hail of bullets before vanishing into the night. In the morgue, Inspector Gerard Lattuada of the Paris Vice Squad recognizes one of the dead as a police informant known as Dolores.

 He learns that a notorious crime boss called “The Greek” ordered the killing of Dolores to settle a grudge. As Lattuarda investigates further, he discovers that a psychopathic and sadistic hit man, employed by The Greek, is intent on taking over the Paris underworld by any means possible. Soon a violent and deadly gang war is in full swing. And soon Lattuada finds himself on a personal mission of vengeance when his sister falls victim to the psycho killer. One of the sleaziest and most violent crime films ever made in France, Death Squad gained much notoriety when it was classed “X” by the French censor.

 This is the first ever US release of the film and is fully uncut, so should not be watched by the easily shocked. Director Max Pecas made his name in the 1970s, with soft core erotica such as I Am a Nymphomaniac and Private Club. Here he returns to the crime films which began his career in the 1960s, but with a 1980’s twist of gore, mayhem, and relentless savagery.
