The Ozploit Cast – Episode 10: ‘1979 to 1980 Films’
Thirst, Mad Max, Felicity, The Plumber and The Chain Reaction
Welcome to our Podcast series from The Super Network with The Ozploit Cast! This podcast series is all about Ozploitation Cinema! If you don’t know what that is, it is exploitation films from the land Down Under! That’s right, Australia from the 70’s to now have been making exploitation films from all genres with horror, comedy, sc-fi, thriller, erotic and action to name a few. The podcast started with Wake In Fright and each episode covers five films in release order,
Bede Jermyn and Super Marcey are your hosts for The Ozploit Cast and are here for Episode 10 along with special guest Sam Inglis (24FPS & Hawke Talk Podcast) to take a deep dive into the next lot of five films from 1979 and 1980 – it is a good-bye to the 70s era of Ozploitation and a hello to the 80s era. The five films up for discussion this episode are Thirst (1979), Max Mad (1979), Felicity (1979), The Plumber (1979) and The Chain Reaction (1980).
Thirst Synopsis: The descendant of Elizabeth Bathory is abducted by a cult of blood-drinking, self-proclaimed supermen who want her to join them.
Mad Max Synopsis: In a self-destructing world, a vengeful Australian policeman sets out to stop a violent motorcycle gang.
Felicity Synopsis: Teenager Felicity studies at a remote Roman Catholic Church boarding school and seeks indulgence in popular erotic novels Story of O, Emmanuelle and in a lesbian love affair with her friend Jenny.
The Plumber Synopsis: A young couple, living in a campus apartment complex, are repeatedly harassed by an eccentric plumber, who subjects them to a series of bizarre mind games while making unnecessary repairs to their bathroom.
The Chain Reaction Synopsis: A holidaying couple is pursued by the thugs of a nearby nuclear storage facility’s boss, who is intent on covering up an accidental leak.
DISCLAIMER: Some of the films discussed in the podcast contain some much dated ideas, use terms that are offensive and mostly certainly not used today. Your hosts have done their best to be as respectful as possible when discussing these issues and have not intended any discussion to be offensive or harmful.

* Take a guess at who isn’t the biggest fan of Max Mad, but also guess who gives it the highest rating.
* Sam is a big fan of Felicity, but what do Bede and Marcey think about the film?

* Bede really enjoyed The Chain Reaction, do Marcey and Sam feel differently?
* All the films discussed have some great stand out performances.
