Pinball Summer (1980), a movie that is supposed to be about harmless fun and teens enjoying a summer break is anything but. You want to lose your faith in humanity? Fire up Pinball Summer! What the hell is wrong with Canada?!
Steve and Izzy from Everything I Leaned from Movies (https://twitter.com/eilfmovies) join The McCollum boys, Bobby, and Mike for an epic episode of the Grindbin. In one of Cameron Mitchell's drunkest performances yet and certainly his best role on the bin, Killpoint is a Crown International action movie that is so bad it must be seen. Featuring action "star" Leo Fong in a deadpan performance that would make Chuck Norris grin.
The boys are joined by Nick (https://thecreaturecodex.tumblr.com/) to talk about a monster movie from Crown International! The Crater Lake Monster, not filmed at Crater Lake, and featuring some of the best day for night shots you'll ever see, is a fun throwback to the heights of Loch Ness fever.
The boys have finally reached episode 200 of the Grindbin and what better way to celebrate than by covering Supervan (1977). Thanks to all our wonderful listeners who've stuck with us and all the new people that have hitched a ride on the Straight Arrow along the way. Bobby, start the van!
The boys go back to school in great exploitation gem from a Grindbin all star director. A new teacher at a troubled inner-city high school (Perry King) soon ends up clashing with the delinquent leader of a punk posse (Timothy Van Patten) that runs the school. Featuring an appearance by a pre-Back to the Future Michael J. Fox!
