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

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

    Favs/dislikes: 35:0. 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.
  2. Vinegar Syndrome's icon

    Vinegar Syndrome

    Favs/dislikes: 24:0. The following is a list of all films Vinegar Syndrome has released to video in some format (Blu-ray and/or DVD) to date. This includes all films released under the VSA, VSU and VSP banners. Also included are partner label releases actually produced and overseen by Vinegar Syndrome (Etiquette, Peekarama, Mélusine, Quality X, Distribpix) but does not include partner labels only distributed by OCN Distribution through Vinegar Syndrome's or Mélusine's websites (Pulse, Utopia, AGFA, Fun City, Command, etc.).

  3. Michael Vaughn's The Ultimate Guide to Strange Cinema's icon

    Michael Vaughn's The Ultimate Guide to Strange Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. From the back cover: "It isn’t every film that features man-eating zombie sushi. But for those searching for just that and more strange things in their viewing queue, this film guide is for you. Organized by genre, including comedy, horror, action, drama, fantasy, and sci-fi, this title offers 300 reviews of genre films from all over the world, 160+ photos, and exclusive interviews and quotes from the people behind some of the most offbeat films ever made."

  5. Jared Auner's WorldWeird Cinema's icon

    Jared Auner's WorldWeird Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. "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."
  6. Something Weird Complete DVD Catalog's icon

    Something Weird Complete DVD Catalog

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. 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 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.
  7. Pete Tombs' Mondo Macabro: Weird & Wonderful Cinema Around the World's icon

    Pete Tombs' Mondo Macabro: Weird & Wonderful Cinema Around the World

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. "Think you've seen it all? Then maybe you should try: *The Turkish version of Star Trek *Indonesian torture scenes in which the victim sniffs smelly shoes *The Curious Dr. Humpp or Bruce Lee Versus Gay Power *kung fu-fighting gorilla flicks from Southeast Asia *a song-and-dance version of Dracula from India Mondo Macabro features the same thorough(ly twisted) insights into cinema's most bizarre elements as were to be found in the author's book on European films, Immoral Tales. Lavishly illustrated and painstakingly researched, Mondo Macabro boldly goes into the exotic, erotic eclectic and essential international film scene...and the results are amazing." -From the back cover of the book The book is divided into the following sections: #001-030: Crazy Kung Fu!: Hong Kong Part One #031-071: China Blue: Hong Kong Part Two #072-139: Ghosts Galore: Hong Kong Part Three #140-195: Shoe Queen of Blood Island: The Philippines #196-218: Mystics From Bali: Indonesia #219-241: The Bare Facts About Bollywood: India Part One #242-283: From Myths To Monsters: India Part Two #284-351: Dracula In Instanbul: Turkey #352-378: The Strange World of Mr Marins: Brazil #379-431: "Meat on Meat!": Argentina #432-525: Masked Men and Monsters: Mexico #526-534: When the Kissing Had to Start: Japan Part One #535-602: Thinking Pink: Japan Part Two #602-666: Bloodthirsty Eyes: Japan Part Three Missing from IMDB: Meiwaku-Daibatsu (1989)

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

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

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. "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! (2011), Pornography (2012), One, Two, Three! (2012), Sadie’s Song (2011) -La Moglie (2007) -Peekaboo (2014)
  10. Taste of Cinema: The 30 Best Non-English Horror Films of the Past 25 Years's icon

    Taste of Cinema: The 30 Best Non-English Horror Films of the Past 25 Years

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. Summary from the site: "Non-English language horror cinema has always been an important part of the genre film landscape but never more so than the past quarter-century. The American film industry may look at foreign horror films primarily as targets for remakes but non-English language horror is a vital part of a genre that would be severely if not fatally diminished in quality without it."
  11. The Bad Movie Bible's icon

    The Bad Movie Bible

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. Based on the book by Rob Hill, it seeks to catalog the best of the worst films of all time. It's comprised of four sections: #1 - #25: Action #26 - #51: Sci-Fi/Fantasy #52 - #76: Horror #77 - #102: The Rest
  12. AV Club's The 25 Best Horror Movies Since 2000's icon

    AV Club's The 25 Best Horror Movies Since 2000

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. From the intro of the article: "Sixteen contributors submitted ranked ballots of their favorite horror movies released in the United States since the year 2000, including a few that opened internationally before then. These are not the scariest films of our new millennium, but simply the greatest that happen to occupy the horror genre. As such, we tried to be fairly strict with the definition; films that feel like horror but wouldn’t necessarily be classified as such by IMDB or Netflix—like David Lynch’s two post-2000 magnum opuses, or Pan’s Labyrinth, or Requiem For A Dream—were excluded. (The only film that would have made the list had it not been deemed ineligible after ballots came in was Under The Skin—and even then, just barely.) Conversely, we felt little need to inclusively cater to the major horror trends of the period: Just as it’s possible to love ’80s horror without loving a single slasher movie, one can appreciate where the genre has gone these past 15 years without citing the Saw series, defending the endless string of modern Exorcist clones, or apologizing for the ongoing found-footage movement."
  13. Eurotrash Palace's 100 Eurotrash Movies to See Before You Die!'s icon

    Eurotrash Palace's 100 Eurotrash Movies to See Before You Die!

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. "Recently over at the Yahoo Group EuroTrash Palace the members took it upon themselves to compile a list of the '100 Eurotrash films to see before you die'. This was started as an exercise to create a quick listing of the movies beloved by fans of European Trash to hand to newbies that might point them toward the highs (and lows) that were possible. "
  14. Fangoria 300's icon

    Fangoria 300

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. "300 of the greatest fright films ever unleashed as chosen by Fango staff, friends and some of the highest-profile figures working within the genre, and around its pop-culture-soaked peripherals." Taken from Fangoria Issue #300, January 2011.
  15. Porno Noir: A Curated List's icon

    Porno Noir: A Curated List

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. What is it about noir and neo-noir infused with adult film elements that fascinates me so much? Honestly I have no idea. Regardless, I've sought to compile a list of all known films of the XXX variety that bake in elements of classic noir such as Dixie Ray Hollywood Star, gritty neo-noir like Sex Wish and even proto-noir pastiches like Gangland Bangers. This is almost certainly not a complete list but I'll try to keep it updated as I discover additional films that fall into this ludicrously specific sub-genre.
  16. Fragments of Fear: An Illustrated History of British Horror Films's icon

    Fragments of Fear: An Illustrated History of British Horror Films

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. "Fragments of Fear examines a wide range of British horror films and the stories behind them. The early melodramas of Tod Slaughter right through to Hammer and their rivals Tigon and Amicus, plus mavericks like Michael Reeves, sex/horror director Peter Walker and more recent talents such as Clive Barker, director of "Hellraiser", are all discussed. Films studied range in scope from the sadism of "Peeping Tom" to the mutant SF of "A Clockwork Orange" and the softcore porn/horror of Jose Larraz' "Vampyres". Lavishly illustrated throughout, author Andy Boot unravels a tangled history and discovers many little-known gems amid the more familiar images of Hammer, including a wealth of exploitational cinema. Fragments of Fear establishes the British horror movie as a genre which can easily stand up to its more lauded American counterpart in the depth and diversity of its scope." --From the back cover
  17. Horrorpedia Worst Horror Films of All-Time's icon

    Horrorpedia Worst Horror Films of All-Time

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. "The following is a work-in-progress – many more titles are being added – but is not intended to be damning; in fact some of these atrocious movies are our favourites and just because a film is ineptly made it doesn’t mean it isn’t still entertaining, or even bizarrely endearing. This listing of the Worst Horror Films of All-Time is not intended to mock or denigrate the efforts of earnest filmmakers, amateur wannabes or even opportunistic hacks. does not condone the supposedly amusing Golden Turkey, Razzie or riffing approach to mocking cult cinema, even when its clearly the lowest of the low. Smug comedic critics can easily deride the efforts of inept moviemakers as its easy pickings but that adds no value to a genuine awareness of the limitations of budgets, or the ambitions of would-be movie-makers, or the fact that some bad films are simply fun anyway." *Missing from IMDB: -Clown Around (2010) dir.

    Psychedelic Celluloid: British Pop Music in Film and TV 1965-1974

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. Written by Simon Matthews. "After The Beatles stormed America, every Hollywood and European production company descended on London to be part of the new swinging scene... and they didn't leave until they'd signed up every able-bodied pop group or singer to appear in one of their films. A unique and carefully researched cultural history of UK film, TV and music in the swinging 60s. A time when no film or TV programme was without a group, singer or fantastic soundtrack - and London was briefly the film capital of the world. Containing individual summaries of over 120 films, covering everything from John Barry to Pink Floyd via Blow Up, the Electric Banana, Serge Gainsbourg, Magical Mystery Tour, David hemmings, Kubrick, Godard, Jodorowsdky and the London cast of Hair.

  21. Giallo Meltdown's icon

    Giallo Meltdown

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. "There’s a right way to approach a film genre and then there’s the Doomed Moviethon way. Richard Glenn Schmidt dove into the giallo by having weekend-long moviethons with sometimes up to 20 films crammed into a very short amount of time. Armed with only a very understanding wife, a disturbing amount of caffeine, and a seemingly limitless supply of junk food, Richard pushed his eyes and mind to the brink of madness and beyond. Seven years in the making, Giallo Meltdown: A Moviethon Diary lovingly covers 215 films in thirteen chapters with all the black-gloved killers, fashion models, gay stereotypes, psychosexual subplots, hooker bonfires, inheritance schemes, and gallons of fluorescent blood that the giallo is known for."

    Wikipedia List of Banned Films

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. "This is a list of banned films. For nearly the entire history of film production, certain films have been banned by film censorship or review organizations for political or moral reasons or for controversial content, such as racism. Censorship standards vary widely by country, and can vary within an individual country over time due to political or moral change. Many countries have government-appointed or private commissions to censor and rate productions for film and television exhibition. While it is common for films to be edited to fall into certain rating classifications, this list includes only films that have been explicitly prohibited from public screening." *Missing from IMDB: Ghaire aze Khoudo Hitch Kass Naboud Zahari's 17 Years Female Games Dr Lim Hock Siew Kumasowe

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. "Halloween and blood go together like Jason Voorhees and Camp Crystal Lake. And while the aforementioned are pretty terrifying, the anime movies listed here will scare both the living daylights and nightlights out of you. Movies that stay with you after you’ve watched them are are a true hallmark of a great spooky anime. So, here are some anime movies that fans and non-fans alike should watch this Halloween."
  24. FrightFest Guide: Monster Movies's icon

    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?"
  25. Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema's icon

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

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. "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."
