Part 2 of The Minikillers (Germany/Spain, 1969), a crime film in four 60m/200ft parts, directed by Wolfgang von Chmielewski. This tongue-in-cheek caper movie must certainly be considered as one of the holy grails of super 8 collecting. It was produced especially for distribution on 8mm, and at the time was never shown in cinemas or on tv. What makes the film extra special is the casting of actress Diana Rigg, of Avengers fame, in the leading role.
Even after almost 50 years, the production is still shrouded in mysteries. Two of the male leads, Jose Nieto and Jack Rocha, have worked with cult director Jess Franco, and according to some, Franco was involved in the project. The cooperation of Rigg is also surprising. Why would a famous actress agree to star in a low budget film with very limited distribution?
The film comes in a plain box; artwork shown is for reference only.
