Welcome aboard, Loyal listeners! This is Fin Flicks, a podcast about the horrors of the deep.

Today, we’re having a whale of a time (hardy har) with Dino De Laurentiis’ Orca. Richard Harris, Charlotte Rampling, Will Sampson and Bo Derek star as the residents of a Newfoundland fishing town. When fisherman Nolan (Harris) kills a pregnant female Orca, her mate wreaks havoc on him and the town.
