JFD468: Adam at Six A.M., Cruising, Transylvania Twist
Greetings, Junkies. This week on JFD we've got three very different flicks featuring everything from bar fights with Joe Don Baker, leather daddies on the prowl and goofy vampire humor!
Up first, Michael Douglas plays a young California professional who travels to a small town in Missouri for a relatives funeral and ends up sticking around to do manual labor with Joe Don Baker, find love and maybe, just maybe, find himself in Adam at Six A.M. from 1970 directed by Robert Scheerer.
Then, Al Pacino plays a young cop who goes undercover in the underground BDSM subculture of New York City to find a serial killer who's targeting gay men in William Friedkin's Cruising from 1980.
And finally, Jim Wynorski directs a silly horror movie parody about a guy (Steve Altman) and a girl (Teri Copley) who travel to "the old country" to find a relative and magical book that could awaken ancient spirits in the slapstick Transylvania Twist from 1989.
All this plus witty banter between friends, Roky Erickson remembered, our thoughts on the new Godzilla movie, comic book movie crossovers, Robert Maplethorpe chat, and so much more.
