Selected cast[edit]


Wild East Productions released a limited edition region 0 NTSC DVD on 1 November 2004, preserving the film's original widescreen aspect ratio. The DVD has the English title Kill and Pray on the box art but the title on the print used for the DVD transfer is the original Italian Requiescant title. The 2004 DVD is currently out of print, but the film was re-released under the title Kill and Pray in another limited edition R0 NTSC DVD in 2011 alongside Dead Men Don't Count, also starring Mark Damon.
