What decade is your favourite for trash / genre movies?
This page is a resource for Trash Cinema (aka Paracinema) - often forgotten and much maligned movies that typically sacrifice traditional notions of artistic merit for increased thematic exploration.
'In addition to art film, horror, and science fiction films, "paracinema" catalogues "include entries from such seemingly disparate genres" as badfilm, splatterpunk, mondo films, sword-and-sandal epics, Elvis flicks, government hygiene films, Japanese monster movies, beach party musicals, and "just about every other historical manifestation of exploitation cinema from juvenile delinquency documentaries to ... pornography' - Jeffrey Sconce
'Films made with little or no attention to quality or artistic merit but with an eye to a quick profit, usually via high-pressure sales and promotion techniques emphasizing some sensational aspect of the product' - Ephraim Katz.
'To display sadism and discipline alone would only lead to imprisonment. But...simply disguising it with a story, a minimal plot, and a score will result in me being hailed as a creative genius' - Sardu (The murderous performance artist from Joel M. Reed's 1975 cult classic 'Bloodsucking Freaks').
