Grindhouse Releasing is GONE WITH THE POPE (review)

Duke Mitchell's follow-up to MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE in which a group of ex-cons decide to kidnap the pope and ransom him for "a dollar from every Catholic" never saw the theater screens and sat unfinished in the care of his son musician Jeffery Mitchell until the nineties when Sage Stallone and award-winning editor Bob Murawski (THE HURT LOCKER) set about restoring the passion project over a fifteen year period.  Now it hits Blu-ray and DVD from Grindhouse Releasing with a bevy of extras to accompany this oddball exploitation film from the star of BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORILLA!
