Happy to have a go at participating, but I'm a little confused by the very broad definition of the challenge. Can I choose any film so long as it is included in at least one of those iCM lists?

This is certainly a very broad challenge. Those lists are just suggestions, if you happen to want to watch a movie that isn't in any of those lists than feel free to. Just use your best judgement.

I'm in, though I don't know how hard I'll work at it.

To further muddy the waters, there's also this list (which has some improbable things on it):
https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/500plus+essential+cult+movies/cayh/

@sol: As the board's resident fossil I appreciate the latitude. Last year I watched a bunch of swashbucklers (favorite childhood genre). I don't know if anyone else here has ever been to a drive-in, but I saw Ugetsu in one.

Last year my definition was

Cult, explotation and low-budget by minor production companies.
So Troma, Cannon or Corman. It all goes.

Definitely in. This challenge serves as a nice counterpoint to last month's Oscar challenge.

I'd also suggest adding the TotalFilm's Amazing Films You've Never Seen list as a potential list to look at for options. Not all the list I'd consider in this category (Red Beard prolly not) but I'd say most of them are (I plan to try to finish off the list myself in the next week or two).

1. Julie and Jack (2003) 1/10

Another woefully lame movie from Birdemic director James Nguyen, complete with all the usual Nguyen tropes: flubbed lines, takes that continue several seconds after characters have left the screen, computer chip sales and pre-90s level digital effects. Watched with Rifftrax commentary, which is the only proper way to watch Nguyen's baffling films.

1. 8 Million Ways to Die-1986: 7/10

'80s Hal Ashby-directed Crime Drama that, according to some reviews I read, is supposed to be a fun sleazy '80s good time. Honestly, it could've been more sleazy but it is pretty entertaining and the cast is damn good (Jeff Bridges, Rosanna Arquette, Any Garcia).

1. Pusher II (2004) 8/10
2. Pusher 3 (2005) 7/10

With the Pusher Trilogy finished, I have 13 movies to watch to get the Platinum on New Cult Canon. That 13 includes Sátántangó which that 71/2 hour run time intimidates me a little. Luckily my friends are adventurous enough to join me this Sunday to watch it in one shot. I'm not sure if we'll survive :teehee:

2. Nine Lives (2002) 3/10

A group of friends holidaying in a Scottish manor house take turns being possessed by a murderous spirit from centuries ago. A fairly thankless picture all-round, with deaths never getting any more creative than stab wounds to the stomach and the acting never rising above the half-arsed. A truly lame would-be slasher.

Like peeptoad I'll be double dipping for this - or actually triple dipping since I am doing a Monster Movie Challenge at The Horror Board and a Trash/Exploitation Challenge at Trash Epics. Hope that's OK!

I'm hoping to fit in a few films directed by women for that challenge too - maybe some Roberta Findlay or Doris Wishman - who knows? :shrug:

I just rewatched Shriek of the Mutilated thinking it was directed by Roberta Findlay - but she's only credited with the camerawork, her husband Michael is credited as the director. Arrgh! Oh well, I really enjoy that film and it got me a nice Bigfoot bonus at The Monster Challenge.

Really, the bottom line is: We need more women directors in exploitation!

I do have a Barbara Peeters lined up.
