Receiving a near-fatal wound from an iron gate, Mikos is taken to a hospital where the physicians declare him an incredible medical anomaly — and then promptly leave him unattended in the surgery room with only a small frail nurse to watch over him. Needless to say, the poor lass receives a long surgical drill through her head (shades of Fulci’s City Of The Living Dead). Soon enough, Mikos is out on the town, senselessly slaughtering one random innocent after another (one of whom is Michele Soavi, director of Dellamorte, Dellamore and who was in Fulci’s City Of The Living Dead). A passing motorist runs him over — making him even more upset than he already is — which leads him heading for the home of the Bennetts, an uptight “American” family.
Mr. Bennett (Ian Danby) is upset because he ran over Mikos earlier that day and just can’t seem to work up the nerve to say anything about it. Mrs. Bennett (Hanja Kochansky) is worried about her oldest daughter Katia (Katya Berger), who is confined to a bed with an unsightly brace around her neck (what, did they just have her fixed?). And then there’s the youngest member of the Bennett family: little Willy (Kasimir Berger), a really curly-haired kid who appears to be bipolar. The adults take off to go see the big football game (the Stealers vs. the Rams) at someone else’s house — where they all eat pasta. Yes, pasta. Apparently, this is an America from some weird alternate universe. Sorry, we don’t eat hotwings and drink beer in this reality: it’s pasta and wine.
So anyway, while all this exciting stuff is happening, our heroic priest is trying to explain the nonsensical backstory to the town sheriff, Sgt. Engleman, played to a hilarious degree of flamboyancy by Charles Borromel. Fans of Italian horror and sci-fi films will no doubt recognize Borromel from several god-awful Al Bradley flicks, as well as a few other D’Amato films, including The Blade Master aka Cave Dwellers. Yes, Mystery Science Theater fans, it’s the same Cave Dwellers that you all know and love — Borromel played “the really dull old guy” in that film, but here he’s a lively and as hammy as ever.
