NC-17 | 104 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
An aging porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.
Serbian Film lives up to the hype.
2. Naked Blood: Megyaku (1996)
Unrated | 76 min | Horror, Sci-Fi
A scientist taints his mother's scientific experiment with his own drug that transforms pain into a pleasurable experience. Unfortunately for the three women involved in the experiment, the drug works a little bit too well.
A scientist develops a new chemical called ‘MySon’ that can turn pain into pleasure. He decides to put three girls who attend the experiment held by Ethe scientists momma in the test. Meanwhile, he has a crush on one of the girls, Rika. ‘MySon’ influences the girls gradually. The gluttonous woman wishes to have the best food in the world, but she ends up eating herself. The vain woman wishes to have the thinnest and most beautiful body in the world. However, noticing body hairs and pores, she also tries to mutilate herself. Rika does not seem to be influenced by ‘MySon’, but there's a damned interesting reason for that and once discovered, the *beep* hits the fan. This is def worth digging through internet land and finding people, really it is.
3. Blue Movie (1978)
81 min | Horror, Thriller
A woman escapes from being raped only to find herself trapped by a sado-masochistic photographer who, among other nasty things, gets off on consuming fresh human excrement.
If you’re looking for old school weirdness, look no further. Warped genius Alberto Cavallone (who eventually went on to do gritty underground porn under the pseudonyms Baron Corvo & Mr. X) pulls out all the stops in this twisted tale of a brutalized rape victim who unwittingly takes refuge in the home of a *beep* up fashion photographer who eats poop and keeps a subservient model in the attic. This fine Italian sleezefest was made in under a week but is loaded with symbolism; a veritable A to Z of taboo breaking for its day.
4. L'ultima orgia del III Reich (1977)
Not Rated | 92 min | Horror, War
Lise Cohen is taken to a special prisoner-of-war camp for female Jews, a camp run as a bordello to entertain the German officers and troops going in to battle. The camp is run with an iron ... See full summary »
Um yeah! This one's Italian so you all should KNOW right from jump this is gonna be major, as they pull no punches misogynisticly or gross out factor wise. Yes we get a dose of the expected, titties, whippings and rapes, but we also get coprophagia (a la Salo), cannabilism, infanticidevia baby soup and much more. Want an example? OK, the SS are sitting down for a meal with a side helping of Nazi theory discussions and debate, right? One dude expresses how eventually there will be Jewish farms so that they can be used as a food source (so right there we all should know the Germans were innovators in recycling and sustainable living). This idea totally turns everyone on sexually, resulting setting a live prisoner on fire with booze. SO if you wrote this one off as just another in the SSploitation dept, think again.
5. Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
Not Rated | 117 min | Drama, Horror, War
In World War II Italy, four fascist libertines round up nine adolescent boys and girls and subject them to one hundred and twenty days of physical, mental and sexual torture.
A very loose adaptation of 120 Days of Sodom where 4 fascists libertines round up a bunch of teenage boys and girls and subject them to months of physical, mental, and sexual torture. More afflicted coprophagy from Italians who believe they are intellects and not pervs.
6. The Holy Mountain (1973)
R | 114 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
In a corrupt, greed-fueled world, a powerful alchemist leads a Christ-like character and seven materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment.

Jesus comes back and his best friend is a quadriplegic. Then he gets stoned and passes out with a bunch of Romans who drink him under the table. While passed out, the Romans make a plaster of Paris of his body and then they proceed to make hundreds of Jesus. Then it gets really wild when Jesus wakes up and destroys every likeliness of him in a manic type rant. We also have birds flying from bullet wounds, the conquest of Mexico as reenacted by frogs and iguanas, the Virgin Mary handing out crucifixes under a sign that says Christs For Sale and more. Interest peaked yet? I hope so, because there is a lot more going on here than I could ever explain in this surreal, unforgettable, psychological smorgasbord chock full of more symbolism than one could shake a stick at. An underrated masterpiece.. Now I love all Jodorowsky’s movies but this is my fave.
7. Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS (1975)
R | 96 min | Drama, Horror, Thriller
Ilsa is an evil Nazi warden at a death camp that conducts "medical experiments". Ilsa's goal is to prove that women can withstand more pain and suffering than men and therefore should be allowed to fight on the front lines.
If you haven’t heard, Ilsa is the big breasted ruthless leader of a Nazi medical camp who subjects her patients (mostly naked women) to some serious brutality in order to prove the superiority of the female gender to her high commanders. She also really enjoys *beep* up men also though. There are quite a few Elsa movies out there but this original one takes the cake.
8. The Baby of Mâcon (1993)
Not Rated | 122 min | Drama, History
A movie about the corruption in all levels of society. A baby is born from a supposed-to-be virgin woman, so a chain of hysteria about divine intervention in the birth takes place.
OK, I will try and make this short. It’s the 1600’s and all women are sterile except one old and really repulsive woman who ends up pregnant. The crazy older sister decides to exploit the situation by pretending she and her brother are the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus and selling blessings to religious folks, and some wacky incest ensues in a stable complete with animals and a manger. The sister is declared to be an unfit mother because the Church sees some serious money making potential here so the church prospers by selling the kid’s pee, phlegm and blood. In revenge the sister kills her bro and she’s condemned to death but since there’s a law that says virgins can’t be executed, the church has to find a good loophole. Here’s where Christianity gets awfully creative; if they throw her in jail and the bishop gives the military permission to *beep* her 12 ways from Sunday, she will no longer be a virgin and can them be executed and declared a Martyr to cover their guilt. Got all that? WHile this nativity story told by Agnostics should in theory make for one genius movie, its a little snorish in all honesty. But hey, its worth a watch!
9. Antichrist (2009)
Not Rated | 108 min | Drama, Horror
A grieving couple retreat to their cabin in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.
Votes: 98,164 | Gross: $0.40M
While I didn't think this one lived up to its Cannes "audience members fainted" rep, it was beautifully done and had its cringe worthy moments. There's a lotta metaphorical allegorical "birth, death, vagina, forest and nature" blah blah going on here though so just a warning.
10. Trouble Every Day (2001)
Not Rated | 101 min | Horror, Thriller, Drama
Two American newlyweds in Paris experience a love so strong, it almost devours them.
Votes: 5,854 | Gross: $0.01M
Trouble Every Day (2002) Pretty good French cannibal movie that generated a certain amount of controversy for its intense blend of sex and blood. This movie is suggestive more than blatantly narrative, more metaphorical and slow moving than most would expect. Trouble everyday is indeed disturbing, graphic, and jarring, with some scenes here that will indeed make even the most schooled horror fan cringe....Trouble Every Day is a pseudo mainstream artsy pleasure and pain movie which all in all, is really well done.
11. Sweet Movie (1974)
Unrated | 98 min | Comedy, Drama, Mystery
The intercut story of two women: a nearly-mute beauty queen who descends into withdrawal and madness, and another who captains a ship laden with candy and sugar, luring men and boys aboard ... See full summary »
Its the future and the year is 1984 (stop laughing). The miss world Virginity Pageant is being televised and this year the winner gets to marry the richest man in the world as her prize- provided she is actually is a virgin. A gyno exam shows that miss Canada is the winner (ok you can laugh now) but the wedding night doesnt go too well when her hubby pees all over her with his golden cock. Yeah, thatÂ¿s right. ... Sweet Movie is not American or Asian, its Swedish, meaning it was made with the arthouse intention of sending deep messages to viewers. Of course, all of this underlying Euro intellectualism (socio-sexual politics, blah blah blah) is somewhat negated by immense amounts of bodily fluids and other debauchery. The plot is a bit incoherent, but so what? If Jodorowky, Miiike, Paul Morrissey and John Waters had a 4 way and one of them had a Uterus, Sweet Movie would be their less talented love child.
12. The Baby (1973)
PG | 84 min | Horror, Thriller
A social worker, still reeling from the loss of her architect husband, investigates the eccentric, psychedelic Wadsworth Family, consisting of a mother, two daughters, and an adult son with the apparent mental capacity of an infant.
It’s still hard for me to believe a mainstream media company decided this movie was a good idea in the early 70’s but hey, I’m glad they did. Here we have a nifty little ditty about infantilism staring an overgrown man-child named Baby who sleeps in a crib, wears diapers, and breast feeds. This one is pretty true to the era, but it rocks in my book nonetheless. I love the fact that when Ted Post (of Magnum Force and Hang em High fame) directed this one he didn’t notice the social worker actress has a majorly sinful case of lip herpes going on that POOF!, disappears about 20 minutes into the film. Awesome stuff.
13. Bad Boy Bubby (1993)
Not Rated | 114 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama
Bubby has spent thirty years trapped in the same small room, tricked by his mother. One day, he manages to escape, and, deranged and naive in equal measures, his adventure into the modern and nihilistic life begins.
I do not even know where to begin with this one... If Forrest Gump was a low IQed European psychopath, he would be Bubby. And we would have had an entirely different movie conversation all together back in 94, but I digress.... Here we have the story of Bubby, a mentally challenged dude who lives with his crazy incest minded Mom and shes got him convinced the air outside the house is poisonous. Well, when at age 35 Bubbys deadbeat dad returns kicks and him out of the casa, he goes on a one hell of an adventure where his hidden talents (such as speaking quadriplegic, rocking out and murder) come out. Admittedly, I did not find BBB to be quite the life altering movie that so many others do. However, I thought it was dark, funny, and sickly twisted and brutal, which I love in a movie. There were moments in which I cringed, while other parts had me screaming WTF man?!,followed by hysterical laughter. I give mad props to Rolf De Heer for creating a character which on the surface we should loathe, yet he brings out our sympathies (a la Hannibal, Anthony Wong in the Untold Story, Chuckys son Glen in Seed of Chucky), for that is the mark of a darn good director.
14. Happiness (1998)
Unrated | 134 min | Comedy, Drama
The lives of several individuals intertwine as they go about their lives in their own unique ways, engaging in acts society as a whole might find disturbing in a desperate search for human connection.
Votes: 59,307 | Gross: $2.81M
A great twisted indie oddity with outrageous characters and some seriously cringe worth moments, especially at the end. The best work of Todd Solondz so far.
15. Kids (1995)
Unrated | 91 min | Drama
A day in the life of a group of teens as they travel around New York City skating, drinking, smoking, and deflowering virgins.
Votes: 63,927 | Gross: $7.42M
A lot of folks say this one is somewhat passe but I tend to disagree; the overall creep factor here will never undue itself IMO.
16. Vulgar (2000)
R | 87 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
A man who performs as a children's birthday party clown tries to piece his life back together after being gang-raped.
Votes: 3,692 | Gross: $0.01M
Anyone up for some inbred clown rape? As if clowns were not scary enough, here is the story of a struggling professional alcoholic clown named Flappy (Brian OHalloran aka Dante from Clerks) who is determined to make a living performing at kids parties. Downtrodden in every respect, he ends up reinventing himself as Vulgar the transvestite clown improving his financial situation with his shock performances at bachelor parties. Until he is brutally raped and seeks out revenge with a big gun. Another one of those see it just to say you did type fiascos, for sure. But definately worth viewing if your into shock cinema.
17. The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)
R | 92 min | Horror
A mad scientist kidnaps and mutilates a trio of tourists in order to reassemble them into a human centipede, created by stitching their mouths to each others' rectums.
Votes: 63,179 | Gross: $0.18M
Admittedly overhyped but no list is incomplete without it.
18. Vase de noces (1974)
Not Rated | 80 min | Horror, Romance
A mad farmer falls in love with his pig and has mutant piglets with it. When the "piglets" prefer their mother over him, he hangs them all and the sow kills herself.
This was one of the first oddball movies I ever purchased way back when, you know the kind: it arrived in a plain brown rapper. While its certainly not the greatest, the director tried. Its about a farmer who falls in love with his pig but he ends up very jealous and... Well, its French I think so let's just call it a misunderstood art film.
19. Begotten (1990)
Unrated | 72 min | Fantasy, Horror
This gory and entirely visual film tells the surreal tale of the death and rebirth of gods.
A lonely god disembowels himself and it gets way to pretentious from here. I think there is some kinda deeper artsy message going on here, although I am not really clear as to what that is. BUT its got rad visuals so I had to list it. Plus it makes me feel smart when I watch it and being that I am a sheep in the universe and not a leader, I need people to know how cool I am and my reference to this movie proves me as such.
20. The Taint (2011)
75 min | Action, Comedy, Horror
The water is tainted. The Taint poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists: monsters who want nothing more than to crush women's heads with rocks (or other objects). ... See full summary »
Best utilization of blood, misogyny and fake c@cks I have seen in a while. Not the best but was certainly entertaining.
21. Rape Me (2000)
Unrated | 77 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
Two young women, marginalised by society, go on a destructive tour of sex and violence. Breaking norms and killing men - and shattering the complacency of polite cinema audiences.
Votes: 15,379 | Gross: $0.01M
I love a good revenge story, and this one fits into that category nicely. Though Baise Moi has been somewhat overhyped in controversy IMHO, its still pretty darned good- well, good enough to make this here list! This French thriller is about a rape victim and an emotionally scarred prostitute (Karen Lancaume) who embark on a rampage of murder, robbery and violent sex across France, enacting their revenge on a heartless world. Eventually their vengeance simply degenerates into afree for all mayhem, and anyone and everyone falls victim.
22. Most High (2004)

Set against the backdrop of crystal meth abuse, Most High is a painfully intimate examination of a young man in crisis. Drugs are incidental. Nonjudgmental yet brutally honest, Most High ... See full summary »
This is an incredibly eerie and well done flick about one mans descent into Meth. Not at all cheezy like it sounds- watch it.
23. We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)

Kevin's mother struggles to love her strange child, despite the increasingly dangerous things he says and does as he grows up. But Kevin is just getting started, and his final act will be beyond anything anyone imagined.

Fantastic and well done movie about a psychotic child (turned school shooter) from the mothers prospective. One of the rare instances when I can say a movie is better than the book.
24. Mysterious Skin (2004)

Amazingly moving flick here. I cannot even begin to explain it.
25. Johnny Got His Gun (1971)
R | 111 min | Drama, War
A World War I soldier, rendered blind, deaf, limbless, and mute by a horrific artillery shell attack, finds a unique way of communicating with his doctors.
First things first: Screw all the tards who get there references of this movie from Metallica, ok? I mean, it actually wouldn't incise me so if it were connected to Kill Em All, Ride the Lightening or Master of Puppets but And Justice is their first entryway into suckcockformoneydom. Sorry, its true ya *beep* poseur. Ok, onward... Based on the novel by Dalton Trumbo, this disturbing antiwar film chronicles the tragic fate of a World War I soldier who survives a mortar shell only to have lost his arms, legs, ears, eyes, nose and mouth. Initially, he doesn't know whether he's dead, alive or dreaming. And though he can't hear, see or speak, he learns how to communicate his most fervent wish: to be taken on tour as evidence of the horrors of war. Totally amazing and forgotten work here! One of my all time faves.
26. Emperor Tomato Ketchup (1971)
72 min | Drama
A subversive short film from director Shuuji Terayama.
A highly conceptual flick about a world where children rebel against their oppressive parents and create a new society made up of role playing, sex and violence. Sort of a French Lord of the Flies.
27. Benny's Video (1992)
Not Rated | 105 min | Crime, Drama
A 14-year-old video enthusiast is so caught up in film fantasy that he can no longer relate to the real world, to such an extent that he commits murder and records an on-camera confession for his parents.
I actually really dig this movie. Hence why its listed here... Anywhoo...Fourteen-year-old Benny (Arno Frisch) is a video freak whose life consists only of school, videotaping what he sees outside his window and spending hours watching violent action films. Benny becomes obsessed with amateur footage of a pig being slaughtered, and soon, his passion for videotaped death leads him to commit a heinous act of his own. Austrian director Michael Haneke helms this postmodern exploration of emotional disconnection.
28. I Stand Alone (1998)

Just released from prison, the butcher struggles to find employment but is met with one closed door after another. Angry and frustrated, he lashes out at those around him with horrific force, aching to be heard. This is a great dramatic work from Gaspar Noé (Irreversable, Enter the Void).

This is a mind bending celluloid oddity, but its also a dramatic sort of action movie in a lot of ways... Its suspenseful, brutal, bloody and chock full of dark humor, and is often seen compared to Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Strawdogs-which isn't far off the mark...Calvaire is a French shocker about a struggling singer who is working the wedding circuit in Belgium when his car breaks down in the boonies. He's taken in by a kindly innkeeper who, at first, seems eager to please but later reveals himself to be a psychopath
30. Audition (1999)
R | 115 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery
A widower takes an offer to screen girls at a special audition, arranged for him by a friend to find him a new wife. The one he fancies is not who she appears to be after all.
Based on a the novel by Ryu Murakami, which in reality, the movie ended up being better than... A longtime widower decides it's time to marry again. But how will he find a wife? When a friend suggests he hold a fake audition to pick the right woman, he takes him up on it -- only to realize that his choice may be a better actress than he bargained for. Audition is about reality and perception. It is a horror movie and also a love story. Like all Takeshi Miike films, he pulls out the carpet from under viewers psyche and they stumble-hard. Audution felt a little different to me in regards to what I am used to in a Miike film -I got a David Lynch and Kubrick vibe for some reason (still not sure why). Audition is one of those movies in which people either love or loathe- really there is no in between. One must be patient to watch this one, but the payout is worth every moment.
31. Bijitâ Q (2001 Video)
R | 84 min | Comedy, Drama, Horror
A troubled and perverted family find their lives intruded by a mysterious stranger who seems to help find a balance in their disturbing natures.
I cant even begin to describe this tale of disfunction from the ultimate master, but I will try. A failed former television reporter tries to mount a documentary about sex and violence within the youth culture. By some twisted illogical artistic psychosis he pays to have sex with his prostitute Daughter and films his son being humiliated and hit by classmates. Put theres more- beyond the drugs and violence there is a ton of psychologic warped-Ness happening here, as only Miike does it. Matter of fact this may be his best gore noir yet
32. Mo tai (1983)
84 min | Horror
A woman becomes possessed and dies after a monster is released from an antique vase she had purchased. Twelve years later the monster is re-awakened. First he possesses the family's dog, before moving on to the woman's nephew.
Another Hong Kong gorefest about a demonic statue that rapes and impregnates women. There are masturbating zombies and nasty partiers gobbling up worm filled cake and it just gets better from there. A battery of cheap and sleezy special effects that will hurt you. I really like this one, total classic in my book- even though its straight up chock full of passe effects, when you consider it was made in 83 you can really appreciate it.

34. Yi boh lai beng duk (1996)
Not Rated | 98 min | Comedy, Crime, Horror
A restaurant employee wanted for murder contracts Ebola by raping a woman in South Africa and starts an outbreak there and in Hong Kong when he returns home.
An insane murderer spreads the Ebola virus all over Hong Kong just for kicks, screws corpses, jacks off into frozen chicken parts and more.Um....An insane murderer spreads the Ebola virus all over Hong Kong just for kicks, screws corpses, jacks off into frozen chicken parts and more. Just figured I'd better throw that in their to either sway or disway potential viewers, depending on their mental states and stomach sensitivity. Don't be fooled- there's nothing mind bogglingly deep going on here, its pure trash shock value stuff. At least in comparison to other Asian flicks of the same genre (The Untold Story, Human Pork Chop and the like). Nothing but oodles of gore and major depravity going on here so if that's your thing and your one of those people who must watch certain shockers just to say you did (I know I am), you shouldn't miss this chance to view it and add another well deserved notch on your sicko belt. As for all others who still have a shred of innocence left in em, I'd stay away.

To keep the zombies from returning and eating everyone, families are urged to kill their daughters by chopping them up and leaving them in garbage bags for a government sanctioned pick up before everyone succoms to zombiedom. A great zombie flick (think it has been repackaged as/under the name School Girl Zombies).

On the way back they get lost and end up having to stay all night at a house they stumbled upon, but unbenounced to them the house and area is haunted by a perverted ass force. Best part? A tortured and raped young girl mutates into a penis-headed demon and mutilates her captors. Wosh! This movie is pretty out there and the pervo sex blood seems to be endless. Pretty good for the mid 80's, I gotta say.
38. Pang see: Song jun tin leung (2001)
88 min | Crime, Horror
A group of men brutally torture and murder a prostitute, who was caught stealing from them.
This movie is based on the true story of 3 Hong Kong gangsters sent to prison for torturing and killing a young mother slash hooker named Fan Man Yee. They kidnapped and tortured her for a month straight because she owed them $2,500 bucks. They dripped melted plastic on her, beat her with iron bars, poured chili in her wounds, pissed in her mouth, made her eat crap, strung her up by her hands with electrical wire until this bored them and they then took breaks to play videogames. When she finally died they put her in the bathtub, chopped her up, boiled her body parts and stuffed her skull into a hello kitty doll (ah, those Asians!). So that’s basically the story in all its true crime glory; there’s actually another movie about this crime called There’s a Secret in My Soup. Anyhow, its not subtitled or anything but like so many others the plot is easy enough to decipher. I admit, this movie wasn’t as great as I had hoped but its still a rare gore treat that should be viewed by horror connoisseurs.

A guy was imprissoned, druged and tortured for nearly a decade, but he has no recollection as to how or why. He wants revenge, and plans and exocutes it well, with the help of a waitress friend. This is directed by Chan Wook Park, of Lady Vengeance and 3 Extremes fame, who is also a former philosophy student and Hitchcock worshiper.

Not Rated | 105 min | Drama, History, Horror
Japanese troops round up Chinese and Russian prisoners of war and take them to a place called Squadron 731, where they are grotesquely tortured and experimented on to test new biological weapons.
Men Behind the Sun tells of a remote Japanese outpost used for human experimentation in the waning days of World War II. Hoping to turn the tide of the war, officers at Camp 731 create biological weapons and, in a series of horrific experiments, test them on prisoners. This is the first in a trilogy, but its the best one. Sort of an extreme drama slash horror?

Here we have drag queens, bar room brawls, shootouts, and a hit man with no legs traveling in a motorized wheelchair decked out with Chinese throwing stars and double barrel shot guns.

Add generous helpings of lesbian lust, bestial perversion and some very extreme violence. Then mix in a jaw-dropping performance by the film's controversial director as a degenerate white slaver. Previously banned outright in the UK and available only in heavily censored versions in America, Sadomania is of course, by Jess Franco (Eugenie, Marquis De Sade's Justine). This is one of my all time faves!

A wrong turn on a jazz singer's road trip results in her car breaking down near an isolated lodge run by a faded starlet and a young, homicidal Elvis impersonator.
Some serious sleez-o-rama about a black female singer whos car breaks down in the middle of a small all white town where she meets an Elvis impersonator who rapes her and holds her hostage. This is the worse racial stereotyping I have ever seen in a movie (other than Darktown Strutters), totally un PC. And the acting is horrible, but it does not matter in the end, because check out this all star southern fried trash line up: Shelly Winters, Slim Pickens, Ted Cassidy (Lurch from Addams Family), Dub Cannonball Taylor, and Lesley Uggams (Roots).

The Peabodys are about to assemble every one from the clan, including that snobby, well-off urbanite, cousin Prudence. The true fun really begins when the merry family from the mountains will actually pay Pru a visit.
Bethel Buckalew’s (Sling Blade) hixsploitation masterpiece is one of the most exploitative, racist and stereotypical films ever made about crackers who are dumb as a friggin’ stump. Get ready for this one kids . . . There’s a family reuinion, right? Because Granny wants to make some good memories with kin before she dies (tee-hee yee haw!) . . .

This is the story of four jewel thieves on the run who decide to hole up with a hillbilly couple until the search for them slackens off.
Votes: 421 | Gross: $0.38M
This is the king of redneckery Don Davisons bigger budget follow up to his 1968 masterpiece Moonshiners Woman...Honey Britches opens up with some excellent lines being screamed by Harlon to a hooker buying moonshine in Ga. After spouting Biblical dribble to the above-mentioned ho, theres some pretty funny stuff continuing throughout- a recently purchased bride and a chick with big knockers fighting, a headbashing with a moonshine jug and a great pitchfork through the head scene. Not the greatest hicksploitation flick I have ever seen but still, nothing short of Hillbilly bliss,provided you are drinking while viewing.

All hail Don Davison. This was his first flick and he also plays the hillbilly protagonist Brad who kills a moonshiner and perfects his po-dunk pimpin’ ways by drug dealing and promising to make hayseed Lorilee a “showgirl”. There are also some pretty oddball occurrences, such as bad trips and deadly magicians.

76 min | Comedy, Horror
When Luther's mother is killed, what's a boy to do? Why, put on a dress and slaughter many, many people as the world's first 300 pound, retarded-redneck transvestite serial killer.
I know I know, I have a soft spot for really terrible redneck horror made on a budget that's lower than my Daughters allowance when she was in the 4th grade. This one is certainly far from the best but its still a must view if you like all which is cheesy.
64. The Spook Who Sat by the Door (1973)
PG | 102 min | Action, Drama, Crime
A black man plays Uncle Tom in order to gain access to CIA training, then uses that knowledge to plot a new American Revolution.
Insanely awesome book turned controversial yet virtually unknown movie and I feel kinda weird about sticking it in the category of Blaxploitation because its good like Across 110th St or Dead Presidents good. . . but since its got the whole racism=revenge on whitey thing going, I suppose it will do for now . . . A White Senator starts a campaign for the CIA to recruit Black agents to increase black votes thinking no one will ever pass the test. But in comes an unemployed Korean war vet who much to their dismay, passes. He plays the game to work his way up but of course no one is gonna allow that. Getting pretty bent out of shape and tired of all the racist treatment, he quietly resigns without divulging his master plan- by day he works for social services and by night he trains a street gang in guerrilla warfare and all the other stuff the CIA taught him for an upcoming race war.

R | 96 min | Drama
An all-black inner city school has to become an integrated school. Few dozen white kids are transfered there, but the black students are aggressively opposed to this. The school then approaches a tough black teacher for help.
Hip hip hooray for another blaxploitation drama with stars galore! White kids are getting bused into a ghetto high school and you would think they would know their place but ya know how them suburban crackerjacks can get. So when dumn ass Rob Reiner starts to get jungle wood over some luscious ethnic ass then uses the N word, a cafeteria ghetto riot ensues and teen race war is inevitable. This is actually a really good movie but of course there are some bizarre moments, like when a teacher uses porn to teach illiterates to read and so on. Besides meathead we have stellar performances by Jeff Bridges, Ed Asner, and Calvin Lockhart (Wild at Heart and also blessed us with appearances as Cousin Raymond on Good Times).

A rich white couple is anxiously awaiting the arrival of their precious bundle of joy. Till it comes out black that is! Gee, what could have happened?! Does it have something to do with the black musician they hired for a mansion party? Is wifey gettin' her curiosity on? Did someone put a voodoo curse in their mayo jar? These are the thinks I was wondering at least... This flick is actually really strange and has a pretty odd ending. What else could be expected from Hallmark Films (The Last House on the Left)?.
67. Street Sisters (1974)

Young woman quickly realize that prostitution is a harsh reality.
Holy Mother of stereotypes! Here we have (why of course) a black hooker who's Daddy is a preacher and her son is all white like and can pass. Well, the son of the painted lady is a product of client/whore relations and he ends up being raised by his grandparents.

69. Black Devil Doll from Hell (1984 Video)
Not Rated | 70 min | Horror
A woman buys a doll at a magic shop. Unbeknownst to her, the doll is possessed by an evil spirit, and it proceeds to take her over.
You know its gonna be good when the main character won’t shut up about how she’s saving her virginity till marriage because, well, umn, it’s a set up to the fact that’s definitely NOT gonna be the case! And no disappointments here in this super low budge flick ever an uber religious gal who buys an angry anatomically correct perverted little possessed doll who looks kinda like Woopie Goldberg.The best part of course is the really lengthy (but excellent) scene where angry rasta doll ties her up, rapes the *beep* out of her (well not really, she loves it and he makes her beg for more), and calls her a bitch over and over. Although this flick is chock full of great one liners the best is when puppet boy overpowers her with his magical bad breath and also when he gets his oral on. Trust me, there’s a lot more to it than this, a hilarious and enticing must see for sure. I mean common, angry Muppet sex? Not to mention there are no existing original copies of this movie (so the gritty copies add to the aura), rad puppet to little boy stand in scenes/cuts, add in the no-budget and horrible Casio keyboard soundtrack and you’ve got yourself a true masterpiece from Cheesy unknown Chester Novell Turner. Puppet Master meets Trilogy of Terror meets Meet the Feebles meets Mannequin, I promise.

PG | 102 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
Upon moving into a bigoted neighborhood, the scientist father of a persecuted black family gives a superpower elixir to a tough bodyguard, who thus becomes a superpowered crimefighter.
Blaxploitation Sci-Fi? Ya don’t say! This high concept, no budget one of a kind obscurity follows a black scientist who moves into a white neighborhood. He’s welcomed with threats from a racist honky which motivates him to create a potion that turns Abar into a superhero with infinite mind power. Abar takes on the suburbs like a true mofo- When Abar finds a black family laughing about the folks they have left behind to rot in the ghetto, he turns their food into slimy worms. He also uses his powers to make police docile and inspires hookers to beat their pimps. But things really get crackalakin when Abar unleashes an apocalyptic hurricane on the white folks causing their entire race to disappear. Yeah! In your face whitey! But the piece de resistance is when the racist neighbor admits she’s actually a light skinned black gal suffering from sickle cell. This *beep* should be required viewing in every 2nd grade classroom. Side note: Ron Garcia (Twin Peaks) is the Cinematographer if that says a damn thing.

No, its not a remake perse; the new version is more like a tribute, or perhaps a sequel. Regardless, it pays homage to the amazingly bad but great original. But other than the puppet doll twin and all the sex and cheezy violence, there's absolutely nothing else these two have in common. Well, other than great viewing fun that is! Here we gotsa sixties black militant revolutionary Mubia Abul-Jama set to be executed by electric chair until a big breasted young woman dabbles with a Ouija board, releasing his spirit into the body of a ventriloquist doll. But this is starting to get boring to the little man made of wood, so he gets her to throw a party and invite lots of hot chicks for him to get with and partying, sex and death ensue. Um yeah, how awesome is this? And the best part? BDD is from OAKLAND! I so did not know this throughout all those years of worshiping the original.

A black version of the Exorcist which effing rules. In fact, Warner Brothers sued over similarities between their blockbuster and this low budget schlocker. Blaxploitation starlet Carol Speed (the Mack, the Bird Cage) plays a God-fearing preachers wife who becomes possessed by an ancient African spirit. But instead of turning into the devil, she just turns into a whore.
73. The Black Klansman (1966)
Not Rated | 88 min | Drama
After a black man's daughter is killed by the KKK, he seeks revenge by becoming a Klansman.
From the opening credits and masterpiece theme song, you know your in for a hellova ride. The plot is pretty standard to its era- black man looses a loved on to the Klan and decides to infultrate. The funniest part about this fact is of course that dude (who's white in real life) basically gets a shave and a haircut and viola! He's white. A pretty obscure one here with more usage of the N word than you can shake a stick at.

Are you ready for this one? A ghetto pusherman gets busted, nearly castrated and sent to the slammer. Traumatized by his experience, he spontaneously sprouts a mystical and murderous 15 foot cock which he uses to hypnotize the ladies and strangle 5-0. Admittedly, the concept is waaay better then the actual movie but a must see nonetheless . . . Plus there’s a rad soundtrack of unknown funk tunes and big props to the cast for employing every single person who lives in Watts. FYI: I bought this movie for 50 cents at the Oakland fleamarket.

Not the greatest movie in its genre, but how can you not love the concept of a black army formed to defend and protect the people of Watts from Mafia influence, with 2 generals at odds because one is influenced by peaceful justice a la MLK while the other is influenced by the leadership skills of Hitler. Not to mention this is probably the only blaxploitation film I have ever seen which contains actual footage of the mustached madman? Oximoron anyone?

Karen Carpenter's battle with anorexia nervosa and the cultural influence of the Carpenters in the 70s.
Todd Haynes never relaeased docudrama about America’s favorite bulimic- I first say this one when it came out and have gone through like 4 copies since then.

Naw, he was a polygamist with 12 wives, a thief and drug trafficker, and an American Indian AND a cop. He was a jack of all trades, seeing as how his death cert states his occupation as a pirate.

Yup that's right, here we have Eve Plum as a runaway who ends up in Hollywood, and we aren't talkin' tv set here! She's a teen hooker who keeps getting called a honkey or cracker (I can't remember which, probably both), and we get some VD, gay dudes, pretty swank disco hoe fashions, and a beyond awesome soundtrack by Shaun Cassidy AND The Runaways (hehehe, how ironic). Oh yeah, also starring Bo Hokins (American Graffiti, Midnight Express) as Swan the pimp, Leigh McCloskey (some dude who always does soap operas) who apparently did so well he got the sequel The Other Side of Dawn, and Suzanne Crough (Tracy Partridge hahahaha!) as a hooker.

98. Don't Touch the White Woman! (1974)
108 min | Biography, Comedy, Western
A highly stylized surreal farce about the events leading up to Custer's Last Stand anachronistically reenacted in an urban renewal area in modern Paris.
while far from the best movie on earth, this Western set in Paris is a must see for any of us weirdos and the satirical translation of this movie is amazing in concept, let alone how awesome this movie in title alone will look in your movie rack! Here we have a very un-America take on the classic western, wherein support lies with the Indians not the cowboys. And here the Battle of Little Big Horn rages at the demolished site of a formerly thriving marketplace in Paris. Sitting bull defends his people’s homes which happen to be apartments. One of the best concepts? White women working in sweatshops to create native American artifacts for sale. SO if this hasn’t convinced one to watch, no clue what else would.

If Footmen depicts, in docudrama fashion, the possible consequences we as a nation may face if we don’t give our hearts and minds fully to Jesus Christ- for it is the lord who will protect us from the coming of communism! Children get their eardrums punctured with bamboo sticks by godless communists so they cannot hear the word of the lord, large groups of southern brethren are gunned down like cattle all because they refuse to denounce their lord and savior, and one boy is even decapitated because he will not stomp on a picture of good ole J.C! The most unforgettable religious scare film ever conceived.
100. Rock: It's Your Decision (1982 Video)
Not Rated | 52 min | Drama
The parents of a young man force him to go without rock music for thirty days, and as a result, he discovers how rock music is a tool of Satan to control people.
An amazing Christian propaganda film focusing on the evils of really bad cock rock. Apparently rocking out leads to all things bad including suicide, drug use, and terrible fashion choices. Awesome religious scare film.
