Mondo Macabro’s February 2020 Release of DANGEROUS CARGO – TVs
DALLAS’ Debbie Shelton in her most daring role ever!
In this wild and rarely seen example of Greek exploitation cinema, Deborah
Shelton - former Miss USA and star of TV’s DALLAS - plays the wife of a
ship’s captain whose vessel is taken over by pirates. After her husband is
brutally killed she is alone with a crew of rough, tough seafarers. When the
pirate leader takes an interest in her she has to use all her cunning and skills
- not to mention her sexuality - to stay alive and take revenge for the murder
of her husband.
The film is a tense and brutal
story of lust and treachery on the high seas. Set entirely on a huge ship
carrying an illegal cargo of dangerous nitro-glycerine, the film racks up the
tension to almost unbearable levels as cross and counter cross take place among
the warring parties. When a powerful cyclone threatens to sink the ship and kill
all aboard, the former enemies must collaborate to save themselves. Directed by
Kostas Karagiannis, the crazed genius behind such films as THE WIFE KILLER and
TANGO OF PERVERSION, DANGEROUS CARGO is exploitation cinema at its finest.
Deborah Shelton, in her raunchiest role ever, is by turns scared, seductive and
scheming as she takes control of the situation and springs more than a few
surprises for the viewer.
