19 - Served Up Cold

Episode 19 of the podcast was spawned by a request from a listener for us to focus on revenge thrillers. The listener suggested 1980's The Exterminator and we chose 1988's Deadbeat at Dawn.
These are both low-budget but incredibly well executed examples of the revenge sub-genre.
The Exterminator stars Robert Ginty and Christopher George who both turn in respectable performances. Ginty is the eponymous character while George is the policeman who wants to end his vigilante justice.
Deadbeat at Dawn features the multi-talented Jim Van Bebber as writer,director,stunt coordinator, and star. It is one of the best examples of micro-budget filmmaking and is a powerful experience to this day.
