Ep. 111: Hell Hunters
We wrap up our celebrated #febWARary with 1988’s Hell Hunters directed by Ernst Ritter von Theumer.  Hell Hunters follows a team of Nazi hunters – Maud Adams (Octopussy), Candice Daly (The Young and the Restless), and Romulo Arantes (Blame it on Rio) – as they attempt to stop a former Nazi played by Stewart Granger (King Solomon’s Mines) from unleashing a deadly poison that will turn people into zombies.  

Take away the Nazi angle and Hell Hunters sounds surprisingly similar to the John Stamos / Gene Simmons masterpiece, “Never Too Young to Die”.  If you thought that movie was horny, this movie takes it to a whole new level.  You see, the jungle is so full of life because it’s so horny and our team of Nazi hunters spend a lot of time in the jungle.  They also attempt to make sweet, sweet love under a gushing waterfall in what might be the best(?) sex scene we’ve seen since Crystal Heart.

Erica also makes a compelling case that spreadable butter is the ultimate aphrodisiac.  We talk a lot about spreadable butter and unibrow guy and loose airport security during the 1980s.  Like Hell Hunters, this episode goes to a lot of unexpected places.
