"Eighteen. I couldn't see it. Like i wasn't i was allowed to see sometimes allowed to see fifteen's never eighteen when i was a kid so i i just i kind of miss the boat on so it was in was in video shops a little bit later thinking about sort of like ninety one maybe maybe nine thousand nine hundred one of one of those weird movies. Actually they actually was released earlier in europe and stuff and it came out late in the in. America came and ninety one in america. I think as an awesome job you saying before. But this explains the reason. You're telling me multiple ways to watch this movie mahmoud available youtube sneaky but it's pro vhs quality nothing. Great if you try on amazon prime you said like oh if you call me what chip because it's dubbed in jamming but the reason why is because that was the first play. Zeke appropriately premiered. Yeah yeah it was in germany. So yeah the is gonna fast and it's and it was. He said he had pretty much a worldwide theatrical release apart from the us sweden and south africa. Apparently say and we'll go into the reasons. Why because it's kind of interesting. What happened last Yeah this is a movie that i only ever saw on television late night crossing through as a kid i know really show what it was because both for reasons will play later underneath even think. It was a movie for the longest time. So we'll go right into the punisher is a nineteen eighty nine mac. Max movie directed by mark goldblatt Which was starring. Dolph lundgren right. He's playing the titular character of castle aka punished like it's based off the mall with character of the same name but they were a few changes The film changes quite a few things about the character Do you know actually any of those instant changes before we kind of show you what happened. the biggest one probably his family is killed in a car bomb in this movie which was meant for him whereas in the comics that killed because they witnessed a gangland execution in the park in central park. that's that's how they re region so the completely transformed the origin of like how he becomes the punisher and doesn't wear the school logo it's all. es yes. Egypt has on the data doesn't it. That's the time you see. Yes these knives in school on the knife and that's the only real yes and also there's another minor one. The fact that inevitably rides a motorbike in the comic. But it's a massive thing to ride a motorbike in this movie you just because it looks cool but it's not what the point does he doesn't have a by can but also full on top of guys. Well frank castle is supposed to be They never really played off the whole expiries rain in this movie they accuracy push fall moldy idea that he was yeah anything else but he was an ex cop when really he was realistically the whole thing off thinking the original one. It wasn't really a call just came back from being an ex marine you witness the gang violence thing but above party is still now you. Yeah he was he was never called. It's all in the comic that i've just started that and if you read upon the synopsis of the movie it says ex marine frank castle but it never mentioned in the movie that he was an axe marie. Yeah he just looked just sounds like a disgruntled cop. So if you combine those together at the back of the punish is a motorcycle like a harley davidson The fact that the skull on the actual sheds which is his actual logos the fact that they never mentioned that. He's a marine all the facts that he's you know and also the the origin story of his family was different combined together. It doesn't sound like punish soon. Wonder when i was a kid. I'll browsing through. I didn't even know this was a punish. The look sound like it now. it also lives in the sewers. like teenage mutant ninja turtle. I don't know whether that was the thing in the comics think. Well i think he lived in the sewer. I lived in underground basis thing but it was actually in the sewer myth maybe details whereas time to give it back. Maybe thought gave me the tail thing. I've even the in the sewers. We got to talk about the su- when we get to it because what is even that will get to it in a minute. So yeah Was basically the the punisher as we all if we added one knows the punisher character. That's what it is and it's interesting. The movie didn't really stick with it when other twinkie. Mabul but when we do the cups. America said how we looked at how mobile didn't really do very well with face because they don't really they don't really know what to do with their property so because they because marvel was very broke quite a lot of the time They would sell. They would sell so like a whole bunch of stuff bunch of the characters in. Ip's over to sort of to anyone down with us for it is good. But here's an interesting one point. The company was actually a actually was with actually owned by production company. Cold newall pitches so new pictures Actually bought actually almost like to- owned marvel at artists Photronics folks. i'm trying to get movie. Productions activists rights who bought. They actually bought the company. The company the characters for a couple years prior writings actually bolted but a low of the agreements beforehand like recaps in america. A few others would dump beforehand. So that's why captain america happened. A whole bunch of wisdom happened in the eighties because again they would just frivolous like stanley and they were not going like you. You have a character you have a character. You have a character character but we don't have any leftover so that's when you will pictures came in the company i the characters and try to go for that so they say what can we do. Not yet okay. Well we're going to try the punish now. Honestly the punishers good idea especially jounieh tastes because the premise of the punisher in general just looks like a generic eighties. Action shooter yet. I think delve London even joked. It's like terminator meets meets batman and is like this laughing about too but it kind of is isn't it. This movie is like that. It's totally is because it's kind of feel labatt match with the whole i'll be back shoots on the terminator in practice won't point you. Could almost you can almost imagine dole flunkies like the leather jacket. And everything else you said. You are basically being terminator robot. You all recyclable. becauses Kind of matches it as well to be frank frank.

"Like a reality show villain before that kind of thing existed where he's giving all these interviews just trash-talking everyone around him and talking about how great he is and how much he messes with people and it's really fun but it also portrays again almost like a reality show villain and in a way that i think he would never portray himself now or has this beloved celebrity and politician. Who was the governor of california and is very careful about his image and he's careful about his image but in a different way in this movie You know that sort of brash cockiness but everyone else do no is is fun to watch and his whole weird dynamic with his father and lesser known. People like franco kalumbu. Who went on to do a bit of movie acting. And is this if you think this is just like oh. It's this kind of data documentary about bodybuilding. It's so much more than that absolutely. Yeah it's it's hard to imagine anyone nowadays putting themselves out there in that way you know especially with some of the shitty says and this is actually one of my honorable mentions. I loved it too. It was just totally ridiculous. And i don't know if it was at all what i was expecting like going in like i'd always heard of it and always knew that arnold made a bodybuilding documentary. But yeah it's a fun movie for sure. Yeah it is. And i think right. I also really didn't have the i didn't know what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise. So i go with my number ten which is one of five eighty s movies. I had to watch for a guest appearance on the binge movies podcast and it's called dead heat. It came out in one thousand nine hundred from director mark goldblatt and is one of the dumbest movies. I've seen it a long time as you know i do. I do like a movie every now. And then and it's essentially a buddy cop movie that's mashed up with zombie movie genre and in this movie..

"On the set, but because Vic Moro the actor whose character instigates most of these brawls was a notorious class, and had a very difficult time trying to look coordinated enough to pull off his fighting prowess effectively, so they had him have a gang of other people who would do the fighting for him Doug McClure. He had experience being a stuntman before he would have the action centered around him to try to minimize using. Using Moreover, much more than one well-placed kick during a brawl, both McClure and moral had their own issues during the filming of this, they both suffered from alcoholism, and they could get quite cranky if either of them either had too much or not enough of the alcohol, so they would have to ration them beers every couple of hours throughout the day to keep them from getting too dry or a little too tipsy to make it unpleasant for everybody else. Now during the shoot, Peters did get approved to return back to the directors guild. Expected her at that moment to quit this nonunion film to honor Heard Union, but she would not do that not midstream, and that subsequently caused her to get a fifteen thousand dollar fine from the DJ for making this movie, which really wiped out pretty much what she was making on it Corman. Did tell her that he would cover the fees, but he never did. Get around to it. Ended kind of on bad terms, so it was not something she felt comfortable asking for, but as for the reasons, why ended on bad terms? It's because it started with Peter's turning in her final. The film editor Mark Goldblatt. He was piecing all of this footage together. He was feeling like things were not really popping as they should. Certain coverages were not adequate. The set pieces that Peters had filmed lacked a certain excitement to them so Goldblatt took the footage that he edited together to Roger Cormon to have a look and Corman agreed. It just really was kind of lifeless, so he asked Goldblatt try to cut things. A little bit tighter tried. Tried to punch it up, but even with this the film just was a little bit too tame for the kind of movies that new world was used to putting out and also cutting it up. This much reduced the run time to less than customary at length for them so corman. He said that they needed to add more to this, so he initially told Peters that. They were going to change a few things to enhance not only the visual. Visual effects but to add additional scenes to make this movie much more of a feature length, but as he began to look more closely at what needed to be added, cormon started to zero in on this notion that it was the rape scenes that were too subtle, and that's why it seemed very tame. Peters was pulling away, and she was denying the audience the shock value that should be there, so he wanna Peters to add more footage of. Of the women getting victimized needed, they're close to get ripped off needed to see these creatures, actually going at it with these women but Peters being feminist, she refused to direct rape scenes or overt vehemence against women as part of this pure entertainment flake so Coleman told her that she's not going to do it. He's going to get somebody else to do it. And he laid her outrage in that moment by saying that she was going to be. About the footage that they were going to add to it before it was put out for release, so she consented to at least wait and see Korman immediately he promoted second unit director James Sparta Lottie. He went from the second unit director to the first assistant director, and he filled in these re touches that Corman expected from the film if you look at. There's another director that is credited battle beyond the stars director Jimmy team or a Commie that says that he directed additional scenes, but there's a lot of back and forth to which Jim actually this was aginst Bartolotti or Jim a commie. It depends on where you look somebody. One of them directed additional scenes that included the Salmon Queen. She gets her top ripped off and then attacked by these creatures. There's this assault and a tent, involving a ventriloquist and another. Another woman who would provide a little bit more nudity there, and there's these explicit inserts used for the rape of Peggy played by Lynch. He'll that were also shot and put into this film now Peters didn't actually get to see all of this footage. As it was coming out. In fact, nobody who was in the cast and crew, not involved with those scenes, even saw it until they had previous screening where peters and the rest of the cast solve this. Film and she grew livid at the amount of sex and rape that was injected into her feature, not only because what the added she felt was degrading, but it was also very unnecessary, and she further complained that the new footage doesn't even match a lot of the shots that she had put into her feature for instance in the rape scene of Peggy. She originally had a close up of Peggy just screaming, and then we would see her hand clutching. Clutching very futilely at the sand, so we don't see the actual thing and they made it much more much more graphic than that, so the graphics was the main complaint, but it was not the only thing that peters really disliked. More creatures were added to the first half of this film. They are shown much earlier much more often than they were intended to be. Because in the original script, these creatures will not going to appear until you see the. The final twenty minutes. In fact, the nature of what is killing everyone in the town is kept a complete mystery, and so it was going to be a big reveal that these creatures even exist at least until later in the film. She also did not like the fact that they changed the title beneath the darkness, was now called humanoids from the deep, and with his new title, and with the early appearance of these creatures. There is absolutely no mystery. Mystery no suspense that is afforded. It's replaced all by shock and sensationalism. The scenes that she had in this film. A lot of the character touches dramatic acting. That was being done by these very good set of actors they were all, but completely excised in favor of more horror and more action more mayhem, gratuitous ta all of the stuff that is not even part of the main plot. In fact, the plot is reduced to almost nothing but the bare. Bare essentials, but what upset Peters most of all as she finished watching, the movie was that her name was going to be attached to this Phil rendering film critics and audiences to attach degradation that is found in the movie to her has the person who put it all in there? She wanted her name to be removed or changed. She voiced her opposition to receiving credit for this movie. That would not only upset her fellow feminists, but it was also. Also potentially going to pigeonhole her into this career of just making exploitation films forever, this was what she was going to be known for. Peters was told by Corman. She could have her name removed, but that was only if she was willing to pay for the cost of producing all new credits, a peters decided to let her name stay on the film, but she was going to publicly denounced the objectionable scenes as not her doing when it was finally. Finally released and terkel. She also was outraged during that preview in which he screened it, she decided to join Peters by stating humanoids from the deep was not in any way, which she and the other actors had signed on for this was supposed to be a dark mystery thriller that revealed some science fiction elements in its climax and Terkel, who happened to be married to Richard Harris. They had already known of this happening to other established actors for instance. Instance Peter O'Toole who happen to be a friend of Richard. Harris he had the same thing just happened to him just a couple of years before when they signed on to do a film call Caligula that was made by Penthouse's Bob Guccione into a porno film. She felt that she was being similarly used. AMD betrayed because they were luring good actors in with this other script with a different title with the intent of trying to lend credibility to this. Pornography of sex and violence, and that's not what she originally signed on for g really wanted just to have a starring role that did not include her estranged husband Richard Harris, who by the way announced his intention to divorce terkel partway during the shoot, which was an emotional.

"Down, but you know that was kind of a trick to get them to accept the budget cut producer John Davidson. He speculated that Roger Corman had slashed the budget because he needed more money to make another project he was doing a big budget production of nineteen seventy-eight called avalanche that cost ten times as much as Piranha, and that's why they were being de funded now wants production was underway for avalanche. They hardly saw Roger Cormon again. He really wasn't keeping tabs on. Who is in the cast? He didn't come to screen the dailies. He didn't visit the shoot to see how things were going. He was much. Much more interested in what was going on with the avalanche, and ironically, though Purana in the end outgrowth avalanche significantly despite the higher budget marketing push for avalanche now with the slash budget and shooting schedule to be limited to twenty two days Donte to shoot as much as he could. As quickly as he could and invited sales to join in on the shoot, he was going to put them in the movie, a cameo acting appearance, and he wanted him to be around, so he could revise the screenplay on the fly to try as best as he could to hold the story together for the various changes that they might have to make because he didn't have enough time or enough money. As sales worked closely with the talent that they had on hand. He also rewrote a good deal of the the dialogue characterizations to fit the actors in their respective roles as he got to know them. They originally planned to shoot at a lake in the Los Angeles region, but there was a prolonged drought, the saw at just about dry, so they opted to move to Texas to provide the locales. The shoot in Texas was near Austin San Marcos and corn liked moving the shoot to Texas because Texas was a right to work. Work State so they do all of their work there without needing to worry about union costs and limitations, they could shoot as long as they wanted to. And they didn't have to deal with a lot of the rules and regulations that the actors union typically restricts him to the former Olympic. Swimming Pool in Los Angeles dove was used. It provided a location to shoot the underwater scenes, and they devised a an amusement park sequence to be shot in the San Marcos area at the Aqua Rena Springs Waterpark, but because that was A. A new location they needed an extensive rewrite to accommodate these specific locations there, and there was also this resonant pig that the became enamored with it could do a lot of tricks. Its name was Ralph and sales suggested that they could really incorporate this into the story. They suggested going to this Mexican market nearby to buy a pig's head that they could use for the aftermath of Parana attack on wral, but put a stop to that. He insisted audiences would never stand for pets dying especially when it's cute as Ralph now, they. They never got to film every part of sales script, and that left gaps in the narrative and continuity heiress that Dante would have to deal with later. The limited funds also made many of the intended effect shots like footage of the eating a variety of things, and then growing bigger, those all had to go by the wayside John Burke came in to do the special effects. Although the budget was very limited, so he couldn't afford to do a lot of convincing fish action Berg also strongly advise against this costly and time consuming. Consuming idea that John Davison had four using stop motion Piranha for the attacks instead many of the attacks that we have in the film are actually implied submerged actors. The emoting pain clouds of of this carro syrup us to resemble blood clouding all around them. They had planned to have swarms of hundreds of Harare on the screen, but they could not show any more than two or three in the frame because they needed to hand, hold all of these fish on Roz to simulate the action for the rubber fish were created with. With metal teeth for the close ups, and they shot all the footage at about eight frames second to simulate high-speed action was done into the film three times the speed really and to increase the intensity. They added sounds to the Parana. They please dental drills into a container of water that had a submerged microphone to simulate the sounds of the Parana on the attack. Now the use of carrow syrup they mixed out with milk and additional food coloring, and they put them into the swimming pool with plants and foliage and it all. All wreck havoc on the Olympic Pool at USC that they use to capture that underwater action wants to weather began the heat up there. In the Los Angeles region, a weird fungus spread all around the swimming pool of growths, became so odd and weird and disconcerting that you see they brought in several scientists from up north to come down to examine these exotic mushrooms to determine what exactly they were. The pool had to be drained and sandblasted at new worlds expense, before it can be used again by the USC swimmers and reportedly. Reportedly the incident, an uproar at USC ceased renting out the pool for future film companies during the editing phase, the rods and the wires that controlled these rubber piranha. They were visibly apparent, so they had to darken the footage. The frames used to obscure these attachments to the point where the piranha could barely be seen in the best it could do to make it exciting would be to offer lightning-quick disorienting editing to simulate the intensity of a product attack without showing off the artifice of these rubber Parana as he edited Dante felt. They were just making the worst movie ever. He contemplated during this editing phase that this film might ruin his career just as it was beginning, and because of the gaps in the narrative Dante struggle to piece together the existing footage into a cohesive story. John Sales Happen to be in the editing booth along with him? He looked over his shoulder to try to help, but he grew concerned that what he was seeing was falling far short of the story that He. He had developed in his original script, but because this was his first feature work sales, he stayed back and let Dante his Co. editor Mark Goldblatt figure out how to handle this jumble sales did contemplate this returning to writing novels rather than screenplays because he felt that maybe he was not cut out for the movie business, which relied on collaboration with others that did not share the same vision that he had in his mind, and how the story should precede. And despite all of these many many production issues, Donte, did get altogether and. Turned out to be a huge success, it earned about fifteen million dollars domestically, and became the most successful new world pictures released to that date. It also made about that much additional in international markets in fact in countries in south. America that are home to real life. Parana, it made more money than jaws there and it would become that biggest money earner for Roger Corman to that point, and that's despite the limited regional roll out the planned into theaters, but critically it was kind of a mixed bag as a lot of these movies tend to be Roger. Roger Ebert, specifically selected Piranha on their TV show. Sneak previews on PBS stations. It was selected as his very first dog of the week. And that's where they pick the worst movie of the week on their show really was, it was not that bad to be chosen for the week on that same show Gene Siskel pick cheech and Chong's up in smoke has the dog of the week, and that became another cult favorite for many people now Dante shows here with Piranha, a very good sense of maintaining comic tone to make the horror schlaug very tolerable for. That may not even be into horror films. This is very enjoyable on another level. As long as you can put up with a little bit of the dwarf. Now it's not exactly a good film by most measures, but it is a good movie. It holds up as well as jaws to I think it less than three percent of the overall cost, the tongue in cheek attitude these in jokes, the very fun character performances by this. This very solid cast makes what might otherwise have been a terrible movie without the awareness of its derivative nature as enjoyable as it is I, think the lasting element of Toronto that it put Joe Dante and John Sales at the forefront, becoming too prominent creative voices throughout the nineteen eighties. They've done a lot of very memorable and pretty good work in the nineteen eighties, and I'm sure I'll get into a lot more of their. Their work now although Joe. Donte had made only eight thousand dollars for directing Parana despite the fact that made you know many millions of dollars..
