-Spring is here and we return to our tried and tested method of weekly themes categorised by genre!


The voting method is similar to last Season.


1) Nominate your films based on the Genre of the week.


2) Nominated films will then be chosen for screening by those who attend FML Film Night!


As always, there is some Genre crossover, but here are some good lists to take your picks from!


THIS WEEK - CULT FILMS / B-MOVIES!



What is a cult film?



From Wiki


"Cult films trace their origin back to controversial and suppressed films kept alive by dedicated fans. In some cases, reclaimed or rediscovered films have acquired cult followings decades after their original release, occasionally for their camp value. "


But that definition has broadened out to cover more mainstream films that had a major release, bombed, only gain popularity in subsequent years on VHS/DVD.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_film


What is a B-Movie.



The definition of this has morphed over time too.


"A B movie or B film is a low-budget commercial movie, but not an arthouse film. In its original usage, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the term more precisely identified films intended for distribution as the less-publicized bottom half of a double feature (akin to B-sides for recorded music)"


These days that definition has often morphed into meaning a film made on a budget but with ingenuity and craft. These are often cheap horror/sci-fi films that gained traction in the 70s/80s, especially when VHS became common place.
