  5. Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema's icon

    Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. "Despite the often stereotypical notions of Bollywood, it’s not all weddings, wet saris and running around trees. In the 1970s, Indian cinema gave birth to a new breed of action movie, one that combined its own exuberant traditions with foreign influences like the gritty urban crime thrillers of the New Hollywood, Hong Kong martial arts cinema, and Italian exploitation fare. This was the domain of hard fighting he-men stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Feroz Khan and badass, whip-wielding heroines played by the likes of the gorgeous Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, and Rekha. Let world cult cinema fanatic Todd Stadtman be your guide through this world of karate killers, femme fatales, space age lairs, bombshells and booby traps with Funky Bollywood, a book with an attitude as freewheeling and feisty as its subject matter, bursting with colour and imagination on every vibrant page."

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. The weirdest, the strangest, the oddest cinema from the farthest reaches of the globe. No Ozu, No Godard, No Antonioni, nothing so respectable. Only sleaze, horror, action, fantasy, whatever. The undefinable, the unnacceptable, the unreal.

    Moviedrome (BBC)

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. Moviedrome was a series of cult files shown by the BBC with a short introduction from Alex Cox (or Mark Cousins in later years) beforehand that explained why it was important or interesting.

  15. Sleazoid Express: A Mind Twisting Tour Through the Grindhouse Cinema of Time Square's icon

    Sleazoid Express: A Mind Twisting Tour Through the Grindhouse Cinema of Time Square

    Favs/dislikes: 25:0. The following list is comprised of all films featured in the book Sleazoid Express. The book focuses on the Grindhouse theaters of Times Square and the exploitation films that were shown there. I've tried to only include films that were actually screened at a theater in Times Square during the time period depicted in the book. So films mentioned in passing as a reference point (The Godfather, Taxi Driver, etc.) were omitted since the intent of the list is to capture the sights and sounds of an era and not every film found in the index.
  16. Something Weird Complete DVD Catalog's icon

    Something Weird Complete DVD Catalog

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. Something Weird is a company specializing in the release of exploitation films of all varieties. This list will seek to list all the full-length films released on DVD by Something Weird. I will be excluding the extensive DVD-Rs, digital downloads, bonus shorts and Bucky Beaver stag loops, etc. For the bonus shorts and Bucky Beaver stuff, this is primarily due to most of them being unlisted on iCM. *Note: Not all titles were sourced from SomethingWeird.com due to the company's lack of a complete Catalog listing (They only list in print titles). Additional titles were sourced from Amazon and other online retailers. As a result, some titles may still be missing.

    USA Up All Night

    Favs/dislikes: 13:0. USA Up All Night (also known as Up All Night and Up All Night with Rhonda Shear) is an American cable television series that aired weekly on Friday and Saturday nights on the USA Network. The show aired from 1989 to 1998. The program consisted of low-budget films, bookended by in-studio or on-location comedy skits featuring the show's hosts. In addition to skits, the hosts would also provide sardonic comments about the featured film(s), and observations on various Hollywood- and/or New York City-area clubs and attractions (when the series was shooting out of studio). Including commercials, the program typically ran from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. [wikipedia]

  20. EXCEPTIONALLY STRANGE HORROR CULT CLASSICS by Zachar_Laskewicz on IMDB's icon

    EXCEPTIONALLY STRANGE HORROR CULT CLASSICS by Zachar_Laskewicz on IMDB

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. A simplistic definition of the horror genre assumes that it has to contain monsters and to follow a strict set of genre rules. I believe, however, that horror has the potential to work on a number of different levels, both metaphorical, existential and purely visceral. By its very nature it creates possibilities for expression of pretty complex questions about the nature of existence; more importantly it allows questioning film-makers to completely shatter any pre-existing ideas about what can be defined as normal. Here it is used to explore and criticise society in ways no other genre can, primarily because it is much maligned and misunderstood; film-makers have the freedom to create metaphysical spaces that would be otherwise impossible. In this list I'm interested in looking at those aspects of particular films which make them stand out from the others, which make fans of those of us who are attuned to what horror sometimes tries to communicate (and alienates as many). Horror is also an ambiguous zone of possibility that allows experimentation with forms of representation not allowable in anything outside the avant-garde. These days it's hard to find a horror film that really touches you deeply in the nightmarish kind of way true horror really should. The more recent Hollywood spectacles may look good but lack true depth, often providing a humanistic outlook frosted with a prudishly moral acceptance of empty concepts. In short, I rarely see anthing that more than skirts the edges of true horror. Sometimes you have to look really hard, both into the past and to films that aren't produced by the formulaic cemetery for cinema which calls itself an industry. The idea is to include some of them here. I'm going to try to suggest in short some of the reasons why I've added them to the list (with as few spoilers as possible); the ultimate plan is to include at my website more detailed analyses and descriptions which you can find here: http://www.nachtschimmen.eu/places/projects/ESHCC. My other lists contains films that follow the rules set by Hollywood and are not necessarily awful, but should in any case be avoided by anyone who expects something cogent from the genre. Any suggestions for this or my other list are welcome; I'd love to be made aware of more truly weird and exceptional horror films that may be worthy of this list. I'd also like to thank Frank Edelamn who is the sole creator of his astoudingly complete exploration of low-budget, exploitation and anti-Hollywood cinematic offerings in his extensive website, both well written and well-researched. He calls it, aptly, 'Critical Condition' and can be found at the following URL: http://www.critcononline.com. His site and advice helped me add many of the titles to this list.
