In 1985, a gang of mail-order assassins staged a string of murders-for-hire across the country - but this hitman story is less "John Wick" and more "Fargo by way of The Three Stooges." 

Sean introduces the sordid tale of Richard "Doc" Savage, a Vietnam veteran and strip club owner who arranged paid killings through an ad placed in Soldier of Fortune magazine. What followed was a whirlwind of slapstick misadventure and murder - and plenty of failure - with a team of miscreants who make Home Alone's Wet Bandits look like León the Professional.
