1205. Killer Fish (1979)

Love this episode. I have a soft spot for crime trash in general, and in the context of that I sorta love the premise if the movie. But of course the execution is hilariously hammy, the print looks good, and the riffs are great. Plus it’s got that tune (posted above) by Growler & co.

Random note: this is the episode I threw on to wind down after the Kickstarter telethon, and therefore was the backdrop to the sound of my credit card screaming “WTF?!?” when the charge came through. :joy:

I rewatched Arachnophobia recently and it’s such a better movie than I remember. It doesn’t do anything mind bending, but it’s a tight script that’s well paced and nicely executed. It’s the kind of thing you could use to teach a commercial screenwriting course.

Casting was really good as well. Everybody, right down to Bunny the neighbor kid was spot on.

The assembling of talent is where the movie shines. How the people are used is another story. Nevertheless the personalities up the ante.

While we (specifically me) are on the subject of this movie, who wants the Killer Fish combo meal?

I’m in on the Stouffer’s Lasagna and the Kool-Aid. Exactly like Bill Murray, blood sausages is where I draw the line.
