A wild throwback to '70s grindhouse movies, Modus Operandi is shockingly violent and even more entertaining.

It tells the twisted tale of CIA black-ops specialist Stanley Cashay (Randy Russell), who lives in drunken depravity after the murder of his wife. He is called back into service when highly sensitive tapes are stolen from the President. With the help of his flamboyant fellow operatives Casey Thunderbird (Barry Poltermann) and Black Licorice (Nikki Johnson), he attempts to track them down, leaving a bloody trail in his wake. But the contents of the tapes are more explosive than Cashay could have conceived, placing the nation at the edge of catastrophe, with only the enigmatic and sadistic Director Holiday (Danny Trejo) in a position to stop it.

Director Frankie Latina took four years to direct this lovingly constructed ode to disreputable genre flicks, all of it shot in his hometown of Milwaukee. He mashes together Blaxploitation, gore, Italian giallo, Japanese gangster flicks and much more into an irresistible guilty pleasure.
