Ep. 109 — CLIFFHANGER (1993)
After taking a couple of weeks off, we're ready to welcome 2019 with open arms! And not just any arms, but the big, bulging, sweaty arms of Sylvester Stallone!
This week marks the first week of our new series, "Try Hard," focusing on films that were inspired by DIE HARD and sought to mimic its premise (and box office success).
For the first film in this series, we're taking a look at "DIE HARDon a mountain," Renny Harlin's 1992 rock-climbing actioner CLIFFHANGER!
We'll discuss why this was such a pivotal point in Stallone's career, as well as the many unmade films that paved the road to this box office smash. There's so much to talk about here! Lithgow's English accent! Stalactites vs stalagmites! Michael F'n Rooker!
And most importantly: Is this a movie that's worthy of the Psychotronic Hall of Fame? Be sure to vote in our poll to let us know!
And be on the lookout soon for a link to vote in our annual People's Choice poll to help us decide yourfavorite psychotronic film of 2018!
