Description
Between 1970 and 1977, six low budget films shown at midnight transformed the way we make and watch movies: The allegorical freak-out "El topo," the graphic horror of "Night of the living dead," the outrageous filth fest "Pink flamingos," outlaw reggae's "The harder they come," the phenomenal "Rocky horror picture show," and the darkly disturbing "Eraserhead." Discover the stories behind the movies that defied mainstream America to change the world of cinema forever, featuring startling clips, rare archival footage and revealing interviews with the films' directors, distributors, exhibitors and supporters.
