For me it's The Game (AKA The Cold).  It's not talked about very much, even though it IS included in the Mill Creek Chilling Classics 50 Movie Pack.  I really enjoyed it; the cheesy characters, the clichés, the vague ending.  It's perfect.  TongueOut

At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul.  I believe it's the first movie in the Brazilian-made Coffin Joe series.  Really quite good, especially for its time (1964).

Yes that is a good series, and really like the depiction of Hell in the 2nd one Tonight I'll Possess Your Corpse. Literally it is "hell frozen over". There is a really good chapter on Jose Marins in Pete Tombs Mondo Macabro from 1995, a book I highly recommend that explores weird cinema around the world. It is also where I first learned about the infamous Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam AKA Turkish Star Wars.

I second the "Mondo Macabro" recommendation.  Quite an influential book, as when it came out not many people were into Mexican wrestler movies or the Marins movies, and now they are quite easy to find and have cult followings.  Pete Tombs, the writer, also started his own distribution company to release rare films like GIRL SLAVES OF MORGANA LE FAY and FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY.

Good movies:

The Shooting (1967): B-movie western starring Millie Perkins, Jack Nicholson, Warren Oates and Will Hutchins. A mysterious woman hires two men to accompany her across the desert. As we watch, we see them being tracked by a black-clad gunslinger who seems determined to kill them all. Good, suspenseful B-movie western.

The Man with the Golden Arm (1955): Just getting released from a six month drug rehabilitation program and having served his time for dealing cards in illegal games, Frankie Machine (Frank Sinatra) has high hopes for going clean and finding a new life as a drummer. However upon his return to his old crime-ridden Chicago neighborhood, he soon finds the pressure mounting from those around him, including his wheelchair-ridden wife Zosch (Eleanor Parker), to return to the old money-making “Dealer” lifestyle that first got him started on the path of self-destruction that is being an heroin addict.

The Undead (1957): a whimsical delight. (some might well place this in the Bad Movies section, it certainly has B-movie qualities but I consider it quite, quite good.)

Dark Journey (1937): dreamy unusual film noir set during World War I starring Conrad Veidt and Vivian Leigh.

Bad Movies:

To Kill With Intrigue (1977): A fun kung-fu film starring Jackie Chan (speaking of Chan, I also really liked his first two Police Story films as well) with many bizarre supernatural elements thrown in albeit perhaps a bit confusing. I suspect it may be better in its original language.

The Shaolin Invincibles (1977): Two young girls rescued by a Shaolin monk and trained in the art of Shaolin fighting seek vengeance upon an evil King who ordered the death of their families...however the King has some nasty tricks up his sleeve including some Kung fu "gorillas" (guys in ratty ape suits) and their bizarre long-tongued trainers at one point. This one is a must for B-movie fans. Trust me.

The Angry Red Planet (1959): just for all its monstrosities.

The Bill Rebane flick?  Smile

One movie that I love is Messiah of Evil (aka "Dead People").  Actually I think it's in the public domain and you can download it for free.  Or "Silent Night, Bloody Night".

Real fans would recommend the awesome Code Red DVD  Wink



Beautifully remastered and restored with a clean 2.35:1 anamorphic print and audio commentary.
That's the only way to view this great film in my opinion.

I have the Code Red DVD of Messiah of Evil it is awesome, definitely one of my favorite films. The weird New England atmosphere gives it an almost HP Lovecraft feel, and the infamous super market and movie theater scenes are great. I also love the house with its unique murals and suspended bed.

I didn't even know Code Red released it.  I guess I've been out of the loop for a while.

Code Red also released (or will soon be releasing) an updated and somewhat nicely remastered version of Beyond The Door that looked pretty good from the clip I saw.  That was a nasty movie..

I don't know if it's little known or not, but one of my favorite film noire's is "The asphalt jungle" starring sterling hayden.
Great caper flick.  It's well known, and includes the great LOUIS CALHERN, and SAM JAFFE, later on TV, "Dr. Zorba..." but that's before my time.  Wink Smile

Are you kidding me?  MESSIAH OF EVIL?  Are you kidding me?  Also known as DEAD PEOPLE!  I saw this in a drive-in double horror bill 30 years ago... and own a cheapo 50 Horror movie pack of DVDs mainly because this film was on there.  This film is not well regarded at this website, and apparently not well thought of pretty much anywhere.  But, I too, see the sneaky kind of greatness in MESSIAH OF EVIL...  I really love that movie...

I remember MESSIAH OF EVIL as a dull movie overall with a great scene or two.  The supermarket scene has really stuck with me over the years.  Maybe I should give it another chance.

GODf**kINGDAMMNIT I LOVE THAT ONE!!!!!! Got it from Code Red (AWESOME). Saw it years ago and it really stuck in my head. Seemed impossible to find outside of a VHS copy, but Code Red released it a couple years back, gawd bless 'em. Now I'm practically peeing myself waiting for Rituals (1977) to come out (November, i think?) - then all will be right wih the world.  TeddyR
