Verbatim Box Synopsis
For ex-con Henry Silva this is the big one. The perfect crime. The scam that will set him up for life.
With meticulous planning, he puts together his team. The target is fixed. The fences are lined-up. The heist is on and the prize is gold.
But this is a robbery with a difference. The bullets are blanks. The cops are actors. Silva ends up with the money. For the mobsters fencing the bullion, it's a truckload of fake gold.
But the action is only just starting. Silva has been conned himself.
The scene is set for a bloody carnage.

Looking for The Killer on VHS? It's not readily available, but I did find a foreign DVD on Amazon. I don't know anything about this release, so buy at your own risk!
