Cosmo Carboni (Stallone) and his two brothers could take anything that Hell's Kitchen had to dish out but they had a dream of getting out and making it big. The exit signs point to Paradise Alley, a sleazy private club where raucous wrestling matches with big purses are the order of the day.

Marking the directorial debut of Stallone, co-starring Anne Archer, Joe Spinell, and Tom Waits, and featuring appearances by a roster of legendary professional wrestlers (including Terry Funk, Ted DiBiase, and Ray Stevens), Paradise Alley is "an upbeat, funny, nostalgic film populated by colorful characters", (Variety)!

US: Uncut and MPAA R rated for:

Promotional Material

A strikingly original spaghetti western with a unique elegiac tone, Keoma truly is a one-of-a-kind classic of its genre...

The legendary Franco Nero (Django, The Fifth Cord) stars in the titular role as a half-breed gunfighter who returns from the killing fields of the civil war to find his hometown riddled with the plague, its inhabitants terrorized (with the help of Keoma's own estranged half-brothers) by tyrannical gang leader Caldwell (Donald O'Brien, Zombie Holocaust). Keoma's father (Willian Berger, Sartana in the Valley of Death) welcomes his prodigal son s return, but when Keoma saves a vulnerable pregnant woman (Olga Karlatos, Zombie Flesh Eaters) from Caldwell's thugs, the stage is set for a violent confrontation. With the help of his father and his friend, the freed slave George (Woody Strode, Spartacus), Keoma prepares to take a savage revenge on Caldwell and his gang.

Directed with immense flair and virtuosity by veteran Enzo G. Castellari (who channels Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone in equal measure), Keoma is an epic film of Shakespearean and biblical proportions, which boasts compelling performances and thrilling violent action. Truly epic in scope, Keoma is considered by many to be one of the greatest spaghetti westerns. The film is presented here in a stunning new restoration with a wealth of informative and entertaining new extras.
