Friday Playlist: Shock Value

This is your cue to run.

Sometimes you’re in the mood for a challenging cinematic experience. Sometimes you’re not. B-movies, a term that once applied to films that were second in a double feature, are macabre masterpieces that are often made on the cheap with cheesy special effects and campy dialogue about giant monsters and experiments gone terribly, horribly wrong. Let this music be your cue to run!

    ‘Attack of the 60ft Lesbian Octopus’ by Does It Offend You, Yeah? would fit in perfectly!

    Huh, I immediately recognized the Twisted Nerve theme from Death Proof, but I hadn’t known that it was from its own movie. Cool stuff. :D

    Also, you may all appreciate these:
    It’s all posters for movies starring women, and some of the vintage ones are so great.
