Austin Trunick is a film enthusiast and author of the two-volume series The Cannon Film Guide, soon to be expanding into its third volume. Austin and I spend some time talking about the history of the Cannon Film Group, and how their brand of cheap action films fit into the larger movie culture of the 80s. This involves a lot of comparing notes about early video rental places prior to the transition to DVD. We also dig drive-ins like the Mahoning Drive-In and the Circle Drive-In.
And seriously, can anyone tell me how A-Treat wound up in Raw Deal?
