Someone (I forget who) scheduled a great cult classic in the Underground portion of their Programming Challenge Schedule: FANTASIA. I know Disney doesn't release the TV rights to their animated classics, but how often do they ever show that one, really?

 

Also, has LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS ever been shown? (either one)

DEATHDREAM (1972)

 

This is going to be our Underground feature tomorrow night. Looks like a good one!

 

EATING RAOUL (1982) would be a good choice for this. Another movie I remember liking (in a so-terrible-it's-hilarious sort of way) is HELL SQUAD (1986), which is at your leisure on YouTube.

 

A couple of early avant-garde type movies I'd be interested in seeing featured are BORDERLINE (1930) and DREAMS THAT MONEY CAN BUY (1947). Both of these are on YT, too.

I remember seeing Eating Raoul at the NY Film Festival years ago. I wanted to like it but found it kind of boring. However, I do love Mary Woronov and think a festival of her films would be an Underground treat!

jmking made a suggestion that I'd like to second, with 'Vanishing Point' (1971).

 

skimpole suggested the wonderfully offbeat (for its time) 'Murder by Contract' (1958) and I'd second that also.

 

PhygLeGuy suggested 'Son of Dracula' (1974). I've always wanted to see that. Ringo Starr, ay.

I'm looking forward to DEATHDREAM which I haven't seen in over 30 years. I remember Richard Backus' brief stint as Ted Bancroft on "Another World".

Recorded this and watched it.  After about 10 mins., I started fast forwarding and then skipping.  Finally just gave up.

I would much rather see the movies shown in the introduction to TCM Underground- if they are real.  While there have been some entertaining Underground movies, they are mostly just odd.

Vanishing Point is not an Underground type movie.  It may be a cult classic, but not what I would consider Underground material.  Of course, from the movies I have seen on Underground, I'm not sure what TCM programmers' criteria is.

Cult classics qualify.

Of course that raises the question of what is a "cult classic?"  Anything with Vincent Price?  Anything with Cary Grant?  Or maybe James Bond movies?  King Kong?

Maybe there should be definitions of Cult Classic vs. Underground.  IMO, Underground movies are ones that were not widely shown and dealt with unusual storylines.  Cult Classics are those that were not artistically well received, but have established a devoted group of fans over the years - Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, for instance.

Vanishing Point was fully distributed and I saw it as a first-run, stand alone movie in a major theater in 1971/72.  It was received well enough and shown widely enough that Barry Newman garnered a TV series as Petrocelli out of it.

Maybe I was wrong in calling it a cult classic, rather than just a movie.

Just looked at the forum for TCM Underground.  Lots of the lists seem appropriate to me.  Back in the day, these would have been "B" movies or drive-in movies.
