    Thanks for this episode!

    One other cool thing, at the Pinball City Arcade there is a rare Death Race Machine that is clearly visible.

    This arcade game was banned/blacklisted in a lot of places due to its ultra violent premise.

    Thank you for talking about Midnight Madness. More people need to know about this flick.

    Loved the podcast. I used to watch this movie all the time and you hit the nail on the head because I too was introduced to it as an “HBO Movie”. Another movie that immediately popped in my head when you mentioned the concept of the “HBO Movie” was Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas. They used to play that movie what seemed like every other day, and not being able to record it, HBO’s system made it just as good.

  4. Never heard of this movie before. I’m a fan of Fox and Deezen not to mention Scavenger Hunts so thanks for this episode.

  5. The Retroist says:

    Very happy to hear that you might check it out now. That is what I hope for when I put out the show.

  6. I just watched it on YouTube. While it’s not a great movie, there are some enjoyable moments, most of them involving Eddie Deezen. Great cameo by Paul Reubens also.

  7. The Retroist says:

    I am very glad you checked it out. Deezen always steals the show.
