Rapture (1979)
All about the way in which cinema can completely take over your life. Surreal, graphic and one unexpected moment of 100% pure poppin' goosebumps. A true hidden away near masterpiece from Spain that needs more eyes on it.

Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
There is a mummy stalking the residents of a Texas retirment home and it's sucking the souls out of their very old assholes. Who can stop this Bubba Ho-Tep? 70 year old Elvis (Bruce Campbell) and a black guy who thinks he's JFK (Ossie Davis) are the only ones that are raising their shriveled up hands. It's all real and wonderfully mental.

A man confesses to his colleagues that he is actually a 14,000 year old caveman. They then engage a back n' forth discussion of fascinated skepticism and astonishing revelations. Production values feel like a Lifetime movie but this play like film is extremely engrossing. Tony Todd is a stud in this too.

Still holds its place as one of the most brazen, over the top action flicks of all time. This is Chuck's Starry Night or Mona Lisa, whichever works better.

Cold Turkey (1971)
One of those zany, pedal to the metal comedies you never knew existed with a comedic premise for the ages: a cigarette company offers $25,000,000 to any American town that will quit smoking for 30 days. Well the town of Eagle Rock, Iowa, lead by Dick Van Dyke as the charismatic preacher accepts the challenge! But the cigarette company has no problem playing dirty. Movie hits a lot of spots you don't expect and the scale is huge. Highly recommended.

Headhunters (2011)
This is a thriller that does its job and deserves a fucking pay raise at the end. When it gets going, some of the best moments in the thriller genre in years. Hilarious moments of gruesome dark comedy and plus you gotta see why this demolished car is flying through the sky like a deformed bird!

Take out Spider-Man and put in the black dude as the Hulk and you got your 4 subjects of this doc taking a sincere look at the people who pose for pictures in superhero costumes on Hollywood Blvd in front of Mann's Chinese Theatre and "accept tips." Sneaks up on you on how effective each character's story hits. Must must see if you're a big documentary nerd like me. Superman dude looks exactly like Christopher Reeve.

Cry Baby Lane (2000)
Lazy but effective copy n' paste IMDB trivia caption:

"Only aired once on Nickelodeon. It was never shown again due to an unprecedented number of complaints from parents who believed it was too frightening for a kid's network. Since then, Nickelodeon has refused to release it to the public in any form and continues to deny its existence. Random clips of the movie were released to YouTube, and eventually the full 1 hour movie was uploaded. However, the full version was removed by Viacom due to copyright. UPDATE: The film will be shown on Nickelodeon, Halloween night, October 31, 2011. Enjoy!"

The Sweatbox (2002)
This complimentary documentary shows all the drama of what went down during the making of The Emperor's New Groove. Only screened twice at film festivals in 2002. Disney was then like FUCK NO! NO ONE IS SEEING THIS EVER AGAIN, forbade its release and wanted every copy to be transformed into ashes. It's so hard to get a hold of that a Disney representative had to accompany a copy at all times during a rare screening at Pixar....but yeah it's out there now if ya look hard enough.

Not every flick here is a top to bottom masterpiece (well some are dammit) but I will guarantee you that every flick is filled with an OH SHIT moment or two or strives for something big n' bold n' ballsy or will be branded into your brain until the very day you die. Or just all 3. Enjoy ya rat basta'ds!

Also, some are just amazing some are just underrated some are just obscure and some are just bizarre but most of the time there's a little mix n matching crossover going on but don't expect each flick to meet all four criteria. All I know is all these flicks just need more love.
