Since 2013, I have been writing a cult movie blog on WordPress. There I have reviewed over 1,000 unusual, odd and outlandish films from around the world, from the early years of silent cinema to the home rental video explosion of the 1980s.
For the most part, I have avoided the breed's most well-known 'classics' (such as 'Plan Nine from Outer Space', 'Manos the Hands of Fate' etc.) and focused on the more obscure and neglected. The orphans of weird cinema. I believe this decision led to my blog's addition to the 'Critics Section' on the Internet Movie Database, where my name sits alongside Roger Ebert, The New York Times, Screen Rant, and many others.
Ok, so if you tap the 'Critics Section' of a particular film on the iMDB, you're not likely to see my name in a list with any of the famous examples listed above. But it's not my fault if they want to spend their time reviewing the latest vacuous Hollywood blockbuster, is it?
I'd much rather be acknowledging the (somewhat dubious) artistic merits of films such as 'The Incredibly Strange Creatures who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-up Zombies (1964)', 'Kalimán in the Sinister World of Humanón (1976) and 'Captain America and Santo vs Spider-Man (1973)'.
Below are just some of the things you can expect to find if you dare to enter the blog!
