Raw Deal Redux – Episode 019
[Explicit Language and Content]
In 1985 Arnold Schwarzenegger came to the fair city of Wilmington, North Carolina to film an old fashioned rampage film called Raw Deal. Mostly mad cap and light-hearted, this film features some of the best and worst tropes of an 80’s action film.
Along with the ill-fated King Kong Lives, this is one of the last movies produced by the financially embattled De Laurentiis Entertainment Group.
Special guest Scott Holmquist returns this episode to discuss the movie, as well as Sean’s obsession with beefcake.
Raw Deal is currently 5.5 out of 10 on iMDb, and 25% on Rotten Tomatoes. Midlands Movies puts the film at 19 out of 29 Arnie movies. Scott gave this movie 7 out of 10 Scotts.
This movie and many more in Wilmington would not have been made without Dino De Laurentiis.
To prevent any Googling mishaps, here is the recipe to the Upsidedown Ground Beef Cake.
