1. Last House On Dead End Street (1972)
The original title was "cuckoo clocks of hell" and was 180 minutes long. Nobody has ever found a complete version of it, So it is considered the 'Holy Grail' to collectors.
Roger Watkins was a very talented filmmaker, Reportedly he had an $1,800 budget but spent it all on meth to stay high during the entire three-week shoot; So this seminal grindhouse movie had a total budget of $0 dollars!
Although it was made in 1972, It wasn't shown in theaters till like 1977 and Watkins didn't find out till 1979, And he waited till 2000 to actually come forward and admit he was the writer, director, and star.
So, For a very long time, it was a total mystery where the film actually came from or who made it.
When it was originally cut down to 73 minutes and shown in theaters, it was called 'Fun House', But was later changed to ;Last house on dead end street' to capitalize on the success of Last house on the left.
They even stole the catchphrase 'It's only a movie..."
And, It had one of the creepiest teaser trailers in history!
All in all, This film is one of the most brilliantly nihilistic and hateful movies ever put on film. It was even accused of being a real snuff film.
Phenomenal but no fun to watch.
2. Clownhouse (1989)
This movie has been OOP(out-of-print) for a long time now, And it is very doubtful it will ever be reissued.
It will forever be stigmatized by the actions of the director. But, I saw it as a kid in the early 90s without knowing anything about all that, And it is a very good movie and stars a very young Sam Rockwell playing the dickish older brother beautifully!
This extremely gory and totally visual experimental film tells the tale of the death and rebirth of Gods. It has no dialogue, Just occasional weird ass background noise.
Some seriously blasphemous and disturbing sh*t!
This is a very bad movie, But a very fun kind of bad!
One of the few horror movies directed by a Woman. I love the Spookies :P
5. Blue Monkey (1987)
I have no idea why this Canadian horror movie is called 'Blue Monkey' since it's about killer insects and has no monkies in it at all.
6. Rawhead Rex
This is one by Clive Barker, But it never quite reached 'Hellraiser' Fame. It is still one great movie, And so is Night Breed!
7. Necronomicon (1993)
This movie has some of the best practical visual effects ever, And its source material is by H.P.P Lovecraft.
Great anthology movie, I love it.
8. The Changeling (1980)
This great, classic ghost story is one of the best ever. It has never gotten a true HD treatment and is sure to go out of print sooner than later.
It's a real shame. There is a remake.
9. The Reflecting Skin (1990)
Everyone who likes horror movies should watch this one.
10. The Company of Wolves (1984)
This movie has always been overshadowed by the Howling movies and An American Werewolf In London. But, It has just as good FX as either and is one seriously entertaining movie!
