The Bucket List (25 B-Films to See Before You Die)

1. Faster, Pussy Cat! Kill! Kill! (1965)

2. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

3. Dolemite (1975)

4. Spider Baby (1968)

5. Women's Camp 119 (1977)

Trailer Unavailable, but what did you expect from a film about women forced to have sex with dead bodies in an effort to bring them back to life? No, really. That's what the film is about.

6. The Toxic Avenger (1984)

7. Night of the Demons (1988)

8. Waxwork (1988)

9. Return of the Killer Tomatoes! (1988)

10. C.H.U.D. (1984)

11. Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)

12. The Manster! (1959)

No trailer, but Sam Raimi fans should recognizes this scene.

Speaking of Sam...

13. The Evil Dead (1981)

14. The Dentist (1996)

15. Strike of the Tortured Angels (1982)

This is another one where I can't find a trailer, But the quick plot is three Chinese women (one not-so-cleverly disguised as a black woman) escape from prison and hilarity ensues.

16. The Astro-Zombies (1968)

17. Killer Condom (1996)

18. Tokyo Gore Police (2008)

19. Ricky-Oh: The Story of Rickey (1991)

20. Dead Alive (1992)

21. Terror Vision (1986)

22. Teenage Catgirls in Heat (1997)

23. Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959)

24. The Wizard of Gore (1970)

25. Demons (1985)

So there you have it, 25 b-movies to see before you die. Academy be damned, these are the films that truly matter.

The B-Movie Guy.

  1. Seen many ... but not all of these.... but wanted to point out that the title song from Terrorvision was done by a band called the Fibonaccis, and therein lies a tale ... I have been a fan of them since their first release, and round about 1992 or so I wondered why their stuff hadn't been released on CD yet. So I wrote a letter to one of the labels who released their records asking why not and promptly forgot about it. Some months passed and I got a package in the mail from an unknown address. I opened it and was shocked and pleased to find several Fibonaccis releases on vinyl and cassette and a letter from the band's drummer who told me that my letter came in to their office WHILE THEY WERE NEGOTIATING THE RELEASE OF A BEST OF CD! And on top of that he came from my town, Daytona Beach Florida! well he was just as shocked as I was. Naturally I got the cd Repressed: The Best Of The Fibonaccis 1981 - 1987 as soon as it came out. So it pays to write to indie labels I guess. Oh, and the Terrovision theme song is on the CD, as well as a song about Ed Gein, a pastiche derived from the play/movie The Bad Seed about a saccarinely sweet blond little girl serial killer, and many more that would surely be of interest to readers of this blog. Of course, it's out of print now, good luck finding it, but Terrorvision the movie is on Netflix streaming.
