A priest secretly leads rebels in their struggle against the corrupt military dictatorship of a Central American country.
From the fevered mind of cult director Jess Franco comes COUNTDOWN TO ESMERALDA BAY, a rarely seen, action-packed thriller produced by Europe's notorious genre film studio, Eurocine (FEMALE VAMPIRE, DEMONIAC)! In the sweaty, politically volatile South American country of Puerto Santo, there's a battle brewing. When an arms-dealing American (George Kennedy, COOL HAND LUKE) begins selling weapons to the local rebels, he stirs the ire of a hot-headed General (Robert Forster, JACKIE BROWN, ALLIGATOR) and raises the blood-pressure of the country's hapless president (Fernando Rey, THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE). As tensions rise, a Priest who has had enough (Franco regular Antonio Mayans, WHITE CANNIBAL QUEEN, ZOMBIE LAKE) takes command of the rebels and leads his people to the battle of their lives in Esmeralda Bay! One of a handful of now-obscure action films Franco made for Eurocine in the late 1980s (including the Christopher Lee espionage dramas NIGHT OF THE EAGLES and FLOWERS OF EVIL), TO ESMERALDA BAY is a colorful, pulse-pounding tale of revolution, a military gone mad, a government out of control and the grafters who profit from the chaos. Led by a first-rate international cast (that also includes Brett Halsey, Ramon Estevez and Franco's muse and regular star Lina Romay as Rey's mistress), COUNTDOWN TO ESMERALDA BAY Is an essential film for Franco completists. Full Moon is thrilled to bring this obscure action film to Blu-ray for the first time, uncut and remastered from the original camera negative.
