Season 2, Episode 7 (originally released on April 27, 2018)
This week Michael is going SOLO… and no, he’s not watching the new SOLO – A STAR WARS STORY. Nick is in Scotland for a wedding so Michael pulls from his stack of Vinegar Syndrome and Mill Creek releases to talk about a few.
On this ‘Moment with Michael’, Michael discusses the new Vinegar Syndrome release of BLOOD HOOK:
“17 years ago, Peter’s grandfather went missing under mysterious circumstances. Now, Peter and his friends have returned to the placid Wisconsin town to check out his inherited lake house and to partake in the annual ‘Muskie Madness’ fishing competition. Soon after his arrival, Peter begins to sense that something isn’t quite right, but none of his friends, nor the local sheriff, will believe him. But as townsfolk and tourists begin to disappear, Peter becomes determined to solve the mystery, as well as that of his grandfather’s disappearance, and soon finds himself facing off against a fish hook wielding madman! The feature film debut from director Jim Mallon (Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie), BLOOD HOOK is a distinctly comedic slasher that mixes copious bloodshed with wry satire. Never released domestically in its original version, Vinegar Syndrome presents this under-seen regional horror oddity fully uncut, and featuring previously censored gore and mayhem, on Blu-ray, in a fresh cinematographer-approved restoration from its original camera negative!”
Michael also discusses the Mill Creek release of WHITE LINE FEVER:
“A young Air Force veteran, Carrol Jo Hummer (Jan-Michael Vincent, TV’s “Airwolf”), starts a business as the owner-operator of a thirteen-speed, seven-and-one-half-ton diesel truck, which he “dresses up” and names “The Blue Mule.” With his bride, Jerri (Kay Lenz, Falling from Grace), he sets off to Tucson, Arizona, where his old friend Duane (Slim Pickens, Dr. Strangelove), the manager of a trucking company, gets him a job. But after Carrol Jo realizes he will be carrying illegal cargo and refuses the assignment, he’s beaten by a band of gangsters working for an organized group of criminals headed by Cutler (Don Porter, 711 Ocean Drive). When Carrol Jo’s commitment to staying honest results in even further violent retribution from the trucking syndicate, he has no choice but to team up with other independent truckers to break Cutler’s stranglehold and uphold the rights of the decent working man.”
