Ep. 49: Orca (1977)

Do you like the movie "Jaws"? Do you like Killer Whales? How about Dumbledore? Do you like him? What if i told you there was a movie JUST like "Jaws", starring Dumbledore AND Killer Whales?!? Well, there is, and we watched it! From 1977, it's "Orca", starring Richard Harris. Our voyage into the turbulent waters of 'Animal Antagonist' films continues!

CINEMA UNDER GLASS: ANIMAL ANTAGONIST had Las Películas Sábados Gigantes at The Cinemarijuana Theatre setting sail, AND going full steam ahead this week. Unfortunately, it was not for Cheddar Bay. But rather for Newfoundland, where we bore witness to Dumbledore committing heinous atrocities upon an aquatic family in this cinematic "fuck you" to Jaws: Orca. We don't know how they did it, but this film was somehow simultaneously progressive as well as offensively archaic. Kudos I guess? So what did we think of this Dolphinsploitation gem from the purported second greatest decade in cinema history? Only one path leads to that door...
