25 MOVIES YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN AND PROBABLY NEVER HAVE

So recently I posted a guest blog for Jarret Wiesleman over at PopWrap called 10 MOVIES YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN AND PROBABLY NEVER HAVE.  As I explain there, I only chose movies that had less than 3,000 votes on IMDB, thereby insuring that most of you had never seen them before.  You should still check out the PopWrap blog here, as I give a lot more info on each of the ten films, but I thought I’d post for you guys the list of 25 films from which I had to choose.  I know some of you have seen some of these movies, but most of you haven’t seen most of them.  Here they are, in order of year of release:

    Okay so I’ve only watched one. But I’ve led a very sheltered life.

  • Aaron

    Any list with Russ Meyer and Sergio Corbucci films on it is great in my book. I’d add a Zulawski film to this like Possession or Diabel along with a Morrissey film like Blood For Dracula, Flesh for Frankenstein or Trash. Speaking of Trash, Street Trash is another one that not a whole hell of a lot of people know about. But really, this list is refreshingly original.
