Following discussion on the What Films Have You Been Watching May Edition thread, setting up this to specifically discuss favourite/recommended b movies, horror or otherwise of course!
I’ll have a think tomorrow and the next few days.
Off the top of my head Dr Terror’s House of Horrors is great fun…and Carnival Of Souls.
So mine are probably Shanty Tramp, was blown away by that. There’s one I forget the name of where a group of people wash up on an island run by Nazi’s holding girls in cages to do experiments
Favourite is probably the Dennis Hopper mermaid film, Night Tide. Absolutely love that
Also feel unlike noir, b movies still have a place today. Soderbergh has done so good ones (Side Effects, Unsane)
I mean… so, so many. And defining a b movie is a minefield.
But… watched reanimator for the first time today, and that’s marvellous.
Carnival of Souls is one that comes to mind for me too. Like you, I need to have a think and come up with a list.
Oh reanimatior is brilliant isn’t it!
Q: the winged serpent
Absolutely loved it. Really ramped up after the spade decapitation
Got Re-Animator on record to watch soon
If you have Mubi, Nicolas Winding Refn did a curation which was all b-movies really
Faster Pussycat Kill Kill!
Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama
I could list a hundred, stupidly easily…
Recently watched They Live. Brilliant.
Obviously the good carpenter:
Escape from new York
Assault on precinct 13
60s/70s British horror
Night of the demon
Blood on Satan’s claw
Quatermass and the pit
Oh Faster Pussycat is so good too
Actually, the tingler is American isn’t it.and 50s. Oh well.
i hate john carpenter’s films
