In the latest edition of Film Freaks Forever!, we head to the beach and to the swimming pools for summer fun! Slather on some sunscreen, grab your surfboards, and jump in your dune buggy as the Film Freaks, Mark Jordan Legan and Phoef Sutton, shine a light on four eclectic summertime films.
They discuss the origins of the whole subgenre with “Gidget” and the Frankie and Annette Beach movies to John Milius' cult surfer's film “Big Wednesday.” They also head to the trippy late 1960s Burt Lancaster flick “The Swimmer” and an amazing, campy 1980s horror film, “Blood Beach,” where the beach itself is attacking and killing people! Take that “Jaws!”
