    Noirish: The Annex To John Grant's A Comprehensive Encyclopedia To Film Noir

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. "The purpose of Noirish is to act as an extension to the Encyclopedia -- an annex, if you like -- where I can add entries for movies that for one reason or another didn't make it into the printed book. In some instances, this is just because the movie concerned was released too late for inclusion. Most often, though, the reason was logistic. Although the Encyclopedia takes the broadest possible view of film noir, there were some movies that were either too obscure or too tangential to the theme to merit the use of precious page space: 800+ large-format pages -- nearly 700,000 words -- may seem a lot but, when you're trying to cover in excess of 3,000 movies, you soon learn to appreciate the constraints. That's why this enterprise has the title it has: Noirish. Many of the movies here are very borderline noir, and some aren't noir at all but have associational interest. Just because a movie's obscure doesn't mean it's lousy . . . although there'll be some lousy movies covered here. There'll also be plenty of movies that are, shall we say, undistinguished -- which is not to say they're without at least some points of interest, and certainly isn't to say they're not lots of fun to watch." -From John Grant on the site's "Modus Operandi" section *#641-687: Of Associated Interest - John Grant does not consider these films noir but has mentioned them due to similar themes, actors or influences. **The following are missing from IMDB: -The Twelve Shorts of Christmas #5: The Bloody Fish (2011) -Tango Silent Films: A Christmas Present for Hannah (2009), The Private Lesson (2010), Oh My, What a Night!

    Taste of Cinema's 25 Weird Animated Movies That Are Worth Your Time

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. "There is an odd perception among the general populace that animated movies are made for children. While there’s an obvious connection between children and brightly colored cartoons, adults by nature want to make things for themselves. The people that get into making animation are obviously driven by the desire to draw. But many times these people are driven by curious forces. The animation medium provides a level of creativity and freedom not seen in many other film genres. It’s only natural that a group of people would take that freedom and run with it. Like running off a cliff at high speeds, falling down into a vat of acid that eats your flesh and melts your brain. This list is collection of those decisions. It’s a list of animated films that are strange, eclectic, disturbing, or just plain bizarre. Most of the choices here are geared towards an adult audience. All of the choices here have been picked to watch while under the influence of strong self-assessment."

Given the author did much of his research at a local library in San Francisco, the possibility exists than many of the referenced films are super 8mm home movies and other amateur productions that make it difficult to determine the source of.

    FrightFest Guide: Monster Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. "Monsters have been a part of human culture since we first gained the ability to tell stories. They represent everything from our deepest fears to our feelings of alienation and estrangement. From its beginnings, the cinema has provided a venue to visualize monsters in all their fearsome and sometimes strangely sympathetic glory. They have become some of the movies' most unforgettable, enduring and popular characters. And now the entire spectrum of screen creatures is gathered in one volume. In The Frightfest Guide to Monster Movies, celebrated writer, editor and critic Michael Gingold starts in the silent era and traces the history of the genre all the way through to the present day. From Universal Studios legends such as Frankenstein's Monster and the Mummy, to the big bugs, atomic mutants and space invaders that terrorized the '50s, to the kaiju of Japan and the ecological nightmares of the '70s and '80s, to the CG creatures and updated favourites of recent years ― they're all here. 200 of the greatest creature features from across the globe are reviewed, with fascinating facts and critical analysis, all illustrated with a ghoulish gallery of remarkable monstrous imagery. Cult-favourite filmmaker Frank Henenlotter, creator of some of the screen's most idiosyncratic and bizarre beings, contributes a foreword, A whole world and grisly galaxy of creatures great and small, spawned from space, the supernatural and strange science, the beginning of time, beneath the sea and beyond imagination, await in this book. Dare you confront the beasts within?"

One of the more interesting genres appreciated by anime connoisseurs is the horror anime genre. The fact that it is drawn art makes it very easy to introduce some disturbing, fantastical, and implausible themes without stretching a budget or running into similar issues. There is a huge variety of horror anime out there today – it even has a few subgenres of its own. If you are looking for a new show to watch, you might want to consider an anime.

Over the past century, a diverse pack of lycanthropes has manifest on the silver screen – in big-bucks blockbusters and zero-budget B-movies – each revealing a little more of the nature of the beast. Within these colorful pages we encounter reluctant wolfmen and shapeshifting sadists, big bad fairytale wolves and lycanthropic nymphomaniacs." --Not on IMDB: -Attack of the Indian Werewolf (2010)
