Hallmark Channel Christmas movies: over the past decade such films have become mainstays on the Hallmark Channel cable network
Having written about the subject for the past 20 years, I can discern what marks out cult films, and the following, I believe, are all prime candidates
THE WIZARD OF GORE is a fairly typical H.G. Lewis production, meaning it probably won’t ever win any awards but is great fun for vintage gore fans
Extremely stylish and refined nineties sleaze, headlined by then up-and-coming starlet Julia Stiles
This trashy “comedy” is a good example of just how shitty eighties movies got
An early effort from the aptly named Asylum B-movie outfit, involving a giant shark, a giant octopus and eighties teen queen Debbie Gibson. Need I say more?
Trashy straight-to-video fodder, nominally about the Marquis de Sade
Sex and psychedelia merge in this supremely silly late-sixties freak-out about an acidhead stripper on a killing rampage. It’s stupid as shit but fun nonetheless!
This 1982 outrage is said to be one of the craziest movies by Spain’s late Jesus “Jess” Franco. That, however, doesn’t mean it’s any good!
If you like trashy exploitation this 1981 German jaw-dropper is ideal viewing, being a hilarious and appalling spectacle that must be seen to be disbelieved
