Salsa: The Motion Picture (Cannon Film Group, 1987)
Mr. No Legs (Cinema Artists Productions, 1979)
I haven't seen this one either - but wow do I want to! And I'm actively working on making it happen! This crazy exploitation flick is one of those 70's Florida oddities - directed by Ricou Browning - who was the swimming version of the Creature from the Black Lagoon - and starring Richard "Florida's nice this time of year" Jaeckal. It's also got Lloyd Bochner, John Agar, and stunt work from the amazing Joie Chitwood and his crew, who handled the automotive mayhem for Diamonds are Forever and Live and Let Die!
Barracuda (Republic Pictures, 1978)
Our random third pick almost forced us into a theme - as it's the second Florida-lensed flick this go-round! I think this was originally shot as a mostly land based pollution conspiracy thriller called The Lucifer Project - then reworked after the success of Jaws with a few new scenes involving angry barracudas attacking a couple of guys after being driven mad by the pollution over in the original movie. Consequently, this ends up a pretty bad Jaws cash-in. But you gotta love a cast that includes the incredible Wayne (Jake Speed) Crawford, Jason (The Brain That Wouldn't Die) Evers, William (Blood Feast) Kerwin, and Bert (Billy Jack) Freed. I saw this one on TV not very long after it was made - wouldn't mind a new uncut viewing to see if it's any better than I remember it.
And there you go! Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
