BANANA MONSTER!

I wanted to hate this weeks webipod. For both the usual reasons and far more legitimate ones. I have always had a bit of a love hate relationship with John Landis. On one hand he made An American Werewolf in London. On the other hand there was the whole death of Vic Morrow and two children ... thing. Yet whatever sins Mr. Landis may have to live with one of them is not this film.

Schlock was a surprisingly funny, low budget, zany romp. Paying homage to early Hollywood monster films ... the type we grew up watching on MST3K ... and infusing a little Woody Allen comic timing. James broke his streak of terrible film suggestions with this one and we all found ourselves enjoying life for a few hours.

Don't worry fans ... I'm sure we'll both hate and question the very reason we do this next week!

In 1973 Britain was apparently very confused about the lifestyle of free wheeling motorcycle gangs. Or perhaps their young gangs of hooligans were very different from ours. You would think after the release of Easy Rider we'd all be on the same page. The Brits however felt a different approach was necessary ... thus this weeks webipod was born.

Psychomania!

Suicide, murder, eternal life, motorcycles, bobbies without guns ... frogs!

Does that freak you out square?!

Abby (1974)

Disco Godfather over-actor Carol Speed stars as Abby, a woman possessed by an African sex demon. Let's not mince words: this is the blaxploitation ripoff of The Exorcist, and yes, it's quite a bit more entertaining than the original, if not as prestigious. Although, White Exorcist (as it will now be known) doesn't feature the guy who played Blacula, so, take that, White Exorcist.
There's only one question we leave unanswered in this webipod: should this film be referred to as "The Blexorcist", or "The Blaxorcist"? We recognize that this is a personal decision that we each must make for ourselves, but we hope that you make the right choice, listener.

Day of the Dolphin (1973)

This is one of those rare films that has the ability to astound me. Astonishment based on the fact that it seems inconceivable it could have ever been made. Or that it was made in a pre-irony cinema landscape. Or that it starred "serious" actors such as George C. Scott. Or that they would use taglines to promote it such as:

"The most amazing outdoor adventure ever filmed!"

"Unwittingly He Trained a Dolphin to Kill the President of the United States"

UNWITTINGLY!

I feel like that just about sums up what we got ourselves into this week. I give you Day of the Dolphin my friends.

If there is a hell ... my own personal hell ... its what is seen and represented in this film. Well maybe that's a little hyperbolic ... but not much. This week we watched a blue collar comedy romp starring that guy from Airplane and some other people who cares.

Take This Job and Shove It.

A film almost entirely based on and inspired by a Johnny Paycheck song .............. just let that sink in.

Beer drinking ... monster truck driving and a complete lack of basic economic understanding. Yes mistakes were made.
