We discuss some of our other favorite chase scenes, Liam’s crime connections and SO MUCH MORE. Check it out!

On this episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? we’re discussing the obscure – and unreleased in the USA – action film SPYDER from 1988 starring kickboxing champion Blake Bahner as BRAD SPYDER, a cop on the edge who travels to Hawaii to find out what happened to his beloved (and very dead) partner. If that sounds at all familiar, it’s because Roger Corman bought the rights to the film and had it re-edited and released as BLACKBELT II! It’s an action-packed (and very short) COBRA rip-off. LET’S TALK ABOUT IT.

As mentioned on the episode, you can watch the “Gravetour of the Famous” YouTube video, featuring the graves of Vic Diaz and Teddy Diaz here:
