We’re still wondering WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? and on this episode we’re staying spooky.. kinda with 1978’s VAMPIRE HOOKERS! Starring John Carradine as a vampire hanging out in the Philippines with a bevy of bodacious lady vampires, it’s an extremely silly horror-comedy featuring an incredible theme song and Vic Diaz as a flatulent familiar. But is it any good? Let’s find out!

We continue to ask the question WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? as we look at the gonzo action/exploitation film WONDER WOMEN from 1973, featuring a very sweaty Ross Hagen, a very camp Sid Haig, a very mysterious Nancy Kwan and VIC DIAZ! Featuring cockfighting, buggy chases, mutants, KUNG FU and so much more!

Here’s the comic mentioned near the end of today’s episode:

On this week’s Whatever Happened To Vic Diaz? we look at Vic’s final film: the somewhat controversial Yamashita: The Tiger’s Treasure from 2001! Enjoy the exciting(?) exploits of Jobert and his grandfather as they track down trillions in gold hidden by the Japanese during WWII, while an aged Japanese general (played by Vic Diaz) is hot on their trail. Except it’s much worse than that sounds! Let’s check it out.

We’re once again wondering WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? in 1965’s OPERATION C.I.A., which features Burt Reynolds as Mark Andrews, an agent sent to Saigon (here played by Thailand) as the Vietnam war is heating up in order to stop an assassination. While this Bond-inspired spy film from director Christian Nyby is pretty uneventful, it features a great supporting villainous turn from Vic Diaz, and some two-fisted fun from a mustache-less Reynolds. LET’S WATCH!

FLASH! AHH-AHHH! On this episode of Whatever Happened to Vic Diaz we jump ahead to 1988 and this Eddie Romero-directed action movie (with quite a bit of broad comedy) starring Flash Gordon himself, Sam J. Jones. It also features some absolutely horrible audio, some unique computer hacking, and lots and lots of explosions. Also, Vic Diaz shows up! Check it out.

Watch the movie for free (with ads) on Tubi.tv.
