A very interesting conversation came to pass when I created this meme and distributed throughout our social media pages. There were a few quotes that stood out to me that we should discuss.
An encyclopedia and film-diary of extreme, surreal and bizarre movies Contact: While the term 'extreme' is a relative one and could be applied to any aspect of a movie e.
Rather than succumb to a vague, subjective and meaningless classification, this site makes use of the following dictionary definitions: It focuses on movies with extraordinary content that is not dominated by the left-brain, accepted morals, balanced moderation, and sanity.
Therefore, as opposed to a populist viewpoint that assumes extreme cinema means only shock, gore and filth, this site covers also bizarre, freaky and surreal cinema.
For a personal manifesto on extreme movies and why I watch them, try this essay. The movies should make one feel unusually disturbed, right-brain challenged, or confused.
Many movies nowadays have disturbing, bleak, perverse or violent content, but this site is only concerned with the ones that take it to an extreme and use such content in gratuitous, warped, bizarre, or over-the-top ways.
Correspondingly, although many horror movies have gore, what counts as far as this site is concerned is that the movie revels in it and gives it top billing.
Movies that were extreme for their time, or milestones in extreme cinema may be included as well. They are not recommended to the faint of heart, the prude, the morally righteous or the Hollywood aficionado.
Taking the above into account, pages on film-makers provide only a description of the types of films they make, their general approaches and trademarks, and reviews for all of their more extreme creations, rather than presenting full biographies and complete filmographies.
Extreme short movies and short-film-makers are usually not listed unless they are especially notable or classic. I don't use rating systems because there are too many aspects to a movie to allow a summary with a single number. I simply classify a movie as either recommended, of some interest worth seeing at least once despite its flawsor worthless.
All reviews and criticisms are subjective and personal. I don't make any attempts at objectivity, and there are bound to be many strong disagreements, especially when it comes to cult movies. If you want to know how big a grain of salt to take my reviews with, this is my taste in general: Gratuitously sick movies with nothing else going for them are worthless to me, as is exploitation trash, and I am not a fan of the so-bad-it's-good genre although I do enjoy the occasional campy b-movie.
Classics receive the same level of criticism and are not given special treatment just because they are revered by film schools or by hordes of cult film fans.
Do not expect my opinions to coincide with underground movie trends just because I watch underground movies. Low budgets are fine but not if the writing and acting are lacking. I have very high standards for the 'Recommended' listings.
What this means is that if you enjoy experiments, z-movies, exploitation, pointless sickness, or watching outrageous movies in order to poke fun at them with buddies, by all means use the 'worthless' lists as a shopping list.
My likes and criticisms are pretty consistent and therefore could be used as either a reverse or positive compass, as you wish. If a movie isn't listed here it's usually either because I haven't gotten my hands on it yet or because I didn't find it to be extreme, or because it was released after and did not interest me.
