| The Banshee series DNA
I was very pleased to discover this small American film, which topic is very close to BANSHEE series, showing a man on the run who accidently takes a dead police officer's identity and then becomes in charge to do the dead cop's job, cleaning a small town from its mob. Gerald Mohr is impressive and convincing in this role, among the best he did. And you also have a terrific jazzy score nearly all long the film.
