    MIDNIGHT MOVIES: FROM THE MARGIN TO THE MAINSTREAM

    Directed by : Stuart SAMUELS

    Country : CANADA Length : 88 minutes

    Synopsis

    MIDNIGHT MOVIES: FROM THE MARGIN TO THE MAINSTREAM is a feature documentary that tells the hidden history of these classic MIDNIGHT MOVIES of the 1970's-- El Topo , Night of the Living Dead, The Harder the Come, Pink Flamingos, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Eraserhead.

    Between 1970 and 1977 these 6 low budget films, shown at midnight, transformed the way we make and watch movies, films that re-invented the medium while pushing the boundaries of “bad taste” and “social taboos.”

    Attending “midnight movies” became a social identifier, a badge of one's intellect, a mark of a person's cinematic sensibilities and cultural allegiance, a rite of passage for a whole youth generation in crisis.

    Appearing in the documentary are original interviews with directors John Waters (Pink Flamin
