This delightful documentary gives a precise history lesson about one of the key American cultural phenomenon of the 20th century.
In order of historical appearance on the midnight movie craze of the ‘70s, we get the low down on “El Topo” (1970), “Night of the Living Dead” (1968), “The Harder They Come” (1973), “Pink Flamingos” (1972), “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (1975), and “Eraserhead” (1977).
Great clips and interviews with the filmmakers, programmers, and distributors make for a rollicking good time.
Bring back midnight screenings.
We need ‘em.
Rated TV-14. 86 mins.
