I recently read a review on a personal favorite film of mine Alex Winter and Tom Stern's "Freaked". For those of you who don't remember freaked... it's a movie version of MTV's AWESOME SHOW Idiot Box.

Entertainment Weekly called it "The Greatest Cult Classic That No One Has Ever Seen"... that seems about right?

What are some other films that have cult classic potentionality but just haven't gotten out there for one reason or anything?

For me I'd put Some Indie Favorites out there like "Dear Wendy", "Brick", and "Chumscrubber" not to mention the gross out comedy "Slackers"

(Expanded from my just posted addition to the "What 50 Films Need to be on DVD" thread)


NIGHT OF THE DEMON (1980) THe ultimate killer bigfoot movie! Banned in England!

Bigfoot rips a biker's dick off onscreen and in closeup (blood spurts from his crotch as he staggers around), rips a fisherman's arm off, rapes a mentally retarded hillbilly named "Crazy Wanda" and gets her pregnant, swings a guy in a sleeping bag around and around and impales him on a tree branch, and forces two girl scouts to stab each other to death with their scout knives! Also contains several flashbacks within flashbacks within flashbacks. There's also a cult of hillbillies who worship Bigfoot and bring him local virgins to rape.

The only movie I've seen where the opening credits roll over a blood-filled bigfoot foot print.

See, Freaked is a film that quite a bit of people have seen...atleast in my experience.  It's one of those films that when explained to someone, they look at you like you are crazy.  Once you show them the first five minutes, the normal reaction is "Hey, I saw this on HBO years ago!".  I've had that happen numerous times.




Raffine,

I must own a copy of that film now.  Ebay, here I come!

I think my favorite "movie that no one else has seen" isn't the cheesy fare that I usually fall for, but Luc Besson's 1983 post-apocalyptic b&w flick The Final Combat. I have to give it up for a movie with absolutely no dialogue that still keeps me not only interested, but savagely entertained. A little VHS gem I first discovered in the dusty recesses of my favorite mom & pop video rental establishment shortly before they closed down in the wake of the world's progression to an all DVD society. I miss that place, and my only regret is thinking of all the other great unknown titles that I'll probably never see now that they're gone...  Bluesad

Here's where I got my uncut (except that biker! BounceGiggle) copy of NIGHT OF THE DEMON:

http://www.revengeismydestiny.com/index.htm

SHOCKING VIDEOS! is one of the best resources for obscure titles I've seen, and check out those genre categories like "AMERICAN TRASH" "NUNSPLOITATION" "AUSSIE TRASH" and "PEPLUMANIA"( Question).

It can take quite a while to get your order, but the guy who runs the site explains why in very clear and easy to understand language on the "ABOUT US" page.  Smile

Seen it.  Back in my rent-everything-in-the-video-store-days.  We laughed! and grimaced! 

Anybody see THE FURIES (1950) with Barbara Stanwyck, Walter Huston, Wendell Corey, Dame Judith Anderson and Gilbert Roland???  Rarely shown and unavailable for sale, including unjust lynching, family betrayal, scissor throwing tantrum, and a "dainty" derringer, how that fun-filled fantastic over-the-top potboiler is NOT a cult classic is beyond me!   Thumbup

Criterion has finally released Sweet Movie on DVD.  It falls along the outrage-the-audience (but make it artsy so nobody can be the wiser) exploitation lines of Andy Warhol, Luis Buñuel, Alejandro Jodorowsky, (maybe even Jess Franco?).  Think Fellini with a vengeance!  From start to finish everything is symbolic and surreal, and there are mutes, midgets, golden penises, pedophiles selling candy from a boat, song and dance numbers.  It has all the trappings of a cult classic, yet I've never had an actual conversation with anybody who has seen it.

 TRUTH or DARE - A Critical Madness(1986)- dir./w/pr/ by Tim Ritter. 
 I first saw this on a rental in the early ninties....WOW! Basically, a no budget film,but fun as hell. Some poor shmuck catchs his old lady screwing around on him and goes crazy...he meets some weird chick who then plays a bloody game of  Truth or Dare. He ends up in the funny farm and plays truth or dare with the other loony's one who blows his own head off with a grenade(how do you get a grenade in the cracker factory,anyway?) He ecscapes,wearing a cooper mask,kinda like on the cover of theold  Quiet Riot album covers! He kills babys,old people with a machine gun,a kid with a chainsaw,and even runs over a baby in a carriage! The whole thing is an insane bloody mess...but almost hilarously funny!
  Two sequels(!!!) followed,neither that iv'e seen called TorD2-WICKED GAMES,and TorD3-SCREAMING for SANITY.

I've never seen the sequels, but I second RCMerchant's comments on Truth or Dare.  That is indeed an entertaining film that seemed to come from nowhere.

Ha! That clip managed to show some priceless bigfoot mayhem I didn't even mention.  Cheers

Pulling the guy's guts out and swinging 'em around his head is pretty much what I figured bigfoot would have done to me if he'd caught me in those woods behind my parent's house, despite all the "Benevolent Bigfoot" propaganda in movies back then.

Sorry, I thought this was going to be about "lost" cult classics (like the Lon Chaney film London After Midnight) or films rarely seen due to legal hangups or such (like the Jerry Lewis Holocaust film The Day the Clown Cried).

The best one I can think of off the top of my head would be the uncut verson of The Klansman starring Lee Marvin, Richard Burton, and OJ Simpson. Just a nasty hateful film with three rapes scenes, racist dialogue that makes your skin crawl, and lurid over the top violence that just screams 70s. There are plenty of cut versions floating around from the cheap tape days. But I rarely encounter anyone IRL who's heard of it, much less seen it. When I point out all the things in the film involving OJ that give the movie a weird after the fact dark humor, people crack up and want to see it. I have a cut version on tape, but I saw it uncut on the local independent/Fox station years ago when they would air uncut movies in the late night "safe harbor" hours.

The KLANSMAN with OJ??? DAM!! I saw this at the flea market on vhs a month or so ago...and bought some kung fu tapes instead-boot,boot-that's the sound of me kicking myself in the a$$)...
 As for LOST classics...saw this on youtube a while back-now the 1920 version of the GOLEM was discovered in the 60's sometime,but they found a print of the 1914 version ! I would LOVE to see the whole thing...but I got this little teaser off youtube...

 Perhaps there is still hope in finding LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT or FW Muranu's DER JANUSKOPH ( with Conrad Veidt as Jekyll and Hyde and Bela Lugosi as his butler!).

i own it and alot of people, to my surpise, have seen it or at least have heard about it. most of my collection they have never heard of though. as far as cult movies are concerned entertainment weekly doesnt know dick IMO, only the more famous ones such as freaked and evil dead. i mean doesnt that not make them cult classics anymore? cause now everyone knows about them, or mabey im just talking out of my ass, its early and im grumpy.

Here's where I got my uncut (except that biker! ) copy of NIGHT OF THE DEMON:


From the site:
This Hair Beast not only rapes women, he also rips a biker’s dick off while he’s taking a p**s, forces two knife-wielding Girl Scouts to stab each other to death, tears a guy in half and flings his guts around and more, more, more! You know you’re in for a good time when the opening credits roll over a bleeding arm stump!


it says its on there, and if it isnt like you say well then that sucks. i hate that its so hard to find fully uncut versions of movies im still questioning my "uncut" evil speak dvd.
