Episode 61 – Whatever Happened to Vic Diaz? – Savage Sisters (1974)

Beware! They are still at large! On this episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ it's 1974's SAVAGE SISTERS, a wonderfully cartoonish (sorta) women-in-prison film full of outrageous humor, double crossing and - of course Vic Diaz as ONE EYE. Gloria Hendry, Cheri Caffaro and Rosanna Ortiz play the titular characters, with Sid Haig, Eddie Garcia and John Ashley (who also produced) as their often ridiculous foils. What did we think? Listen and find out!Read more

Episode 60 – Forgotten Gems? – Bye Bye Monkey (1978)

On this episode of FORGOTTEN GEMS? we're looking at the winner of the 1978 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize, Marco Ferreri's BYE BYE MONKEY (aka CIAO MASCHIO) starring Gerard Depardieu! You might think a film about a grown (french) man adopting a baby chimp after finding it nestled in a giant animatronic King Kong would be loads of fun, but BOY is it not! It's cynical, often irritating and very unpleasant, so let's talk about it! Read more

It's a bizarre, and sometimes incomprehensible, high-flying martial arts epic, but it's still a lot of fun. Let's check it out!Read more

Let's find out! Read more

We continue our chronological look at the career of Carol Kane with the notorious 1976 flop HARRY AND WALTER GO TO NEW YORK!

Episode 51 – We Do Our Own Stunts – The Hand of Death (1976)

On this episode of WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS we're taking a step back from Lo Wei's attempts to launch Jackie Chan into superstardom and instead looking at the film that caught his attention in the first place: John Woo's THE HAND OF DEATH!

Check it out!Read more

HAPPY NEW YEAR! On our first episode of 2021 we're heading to the 54th Berlin International Film Festival to look at the Golden Bear-winning Turkish-German drama HEAD-ON from 2004.

Let's find out!Read more
