    Default Soulio's Cult Film Sanctum

    Yeah, we already have a movie thread, but some times it gets bogged down in pages upon pages about the latest Harry Potter movie or whatever other retarded shit is firing up the megaplexes. So here's another, specially designed for lovers of all things cult: midnight movies, b-movies, roadside pictures, exploitation, sexploitation, blaxploitation, foreign oddities, experimental pictures, underground animation, cheesy horror and gore flicks, over the top action movies, camp, educational/scare features, queer cinema, dark comedies, epic failures, rock operas, giallos, women-in-prison films, kung-fu, cannibal movies, mondo movies, cruelty and revenge films, X-rated features, and everything else that gets marginalized by the "respectable" mainstream movie world.

    We can celebrate the (non-)talents of filmmakers such as John Waters, David Lynch, David Cronenberg, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Terry Gilliam, Joel & Ethan Coen, early Peter Jackson, Russ Meyer, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Ed Wood, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, George Romero, Roger Corman, Tod Browning, Lloyd Kaufman, Paul Bartel, Hal Hartley, Jack Hill, Jim Jarmusch, Harmony Korine, Gregg Araki, Guy Maddin, Ken Russell, Jan Svankmajer, Nick Zedd, Richard Kern, William Castle, Paul Morrissey, Stuart Gordon, Alex Cox, Larry Cohen, John Carpenter, Pedro Almadovar, the Kuchar Brothers, Paul Verhoeven, and countless others.

    So tell us about your favorite cult films, some memorable movie going experience at a seedy theater where you got mugged, weird releases you're looking forward to, a bizarre movie you caught on basic cable while you were half asleep at four in the morning, cult celebrity sightings/meetings, throw around your favorite quotes, or share anything else related to the strange and exhilarating world of cult cinema.

    I'll start off by giving a book recommendation for anyone interested in cult film but aren't sure where to start:



    It's full of useful information and is as fun to read as the movies are to watch. These two are also pretty good references:

    I once shook Tura Satana's hand. Then I went to the bathroom and masturbated.

    There was a time when I loved the movie Velvet Goldmine so much I wish it got midnight showings and play-acting like the Rocky Horror movie. My friend and I dressed glam to work for a couple weeks.

    Midnight showings with play acting of Rocky Horror make me glad I got out of doing theater when I did. I enjoyed it and everyone thought I had great presence and crap like that, but I don't think I could live with myself after doing one of those. People take it waaay too seriously. It's camp, it's fun, it's not be-all-end-all.

    I do not support the use of the past tense in this statement. I still watch that movie constantly. My favorite boy is the star, of course, and several others I adore are in it. And I have to admit I like some of the covers of old glam songs in the movie better than the original. Brian Molko as a Bolan-esque rocker? Yes please.

    Hot (and NSFW):

    Yeah, I agree. I'd rather just watch it at home by myself or with friends without all that audience participation shit. Those people get way too pissed off if you don't "have fun" their way.

    As for Velvet Goldmine, I've never been able to finish that damned movie. There's some great scenes and all, but it loses steam about half way through and just keeps going and going and going with the same annoying mopey bullshit. My favorite thing Todd Haynes has done is probably Safe, but as far as cult movies go, Poison and Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story (made with Barbie dolls and struck with a cease and desist order!) are good fun.

    I like campy horror movies, especially when I'm trashed.

    Ewan's interviews about his gay sex scene are hilarious. But I've already posted those before.

    Edited: I mean the one with Bale. Not the ones with JRM. There is a lot of gay sex in VG.

    I just watched "The Brain That Wouldn't Die".

    Hadn't seen it since I was a kid. I'm good now.

    Ha!...a few years back there was an issue with some company that accidentally put this movie on a DVD (or possibly VHS?) that was supposed to be a children's movie...and shipped them off to Walmart.

    I was perfectly fine with this until you decided to jack the following filmmakers from my thread:

    Hey now. No need to fight. You can have them on weekends and alternating Tuesdays, OK?

    I forgot how much I absolutely love City Of Lost Children. It may be my favorite film on a purely visual level ever. It's perfectly constructed, from the sets to the camera angles to the casting choices. Someone needs to give obscene amounts of money to Jeunet & Caro to do whatever the fuck they like with it. If anyone hasn't seen it, seek it out immediately.

    Also, this is what a trailer should look like:

    Due to the opening scene, my wife refers to this as "Too Many Santas!"

    Also, in the winter, she often requests for me to be her "Heeeaterrrrr".
