Due to the growing popularity of their Grindhouse Fridays, IFC is making June their "Grindhouse Month". Every day at midnight, IFC is showing "Grindhouse" movies - to the delight of horror fans. Some of the films are truly subversive, hard-to-find flicks, but the term "grindhouse" is used loosely with some features. Even so, there are several movies that are definitely worth staying up for. Here are a few can't miss flicks:
June 18th - Fido
I've written a bit about this film in a previous post, so I won't repeat myself too much, other than to say that it's one of my favorite zombie flicks.
June 20th - The Prophecy
This film was a really big deal when I was in junior high. It has an amazing cast - Christopher Walken, Eric Stolz, Viggo Mortenson, and, one of my favorite actors, Elias Koteas (Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). The plot boils down to a battle between good and evil, but the real appeal of the movie is that it's just damn cool. I highly recommend this one.
June 28th - Near Dark
Awesome vampire flick. If you like Lost Boys, you'll really enjoy this one. This clip does the film far more justice than I could ever do.
Check out the complete June schedule for the rest of the films.
