Ladies and Gentlemen, Bastards and Tramps. Bloodsuckers, Motherfuckers, Road Trash and Vamps. To the Queer and the Strange — those in the crowd and those on the stage — to the Violent, the Malevolent, and those seeking the grave …
Midnight Grindhouse is the home of every bastard, tramp, bloodsucker and motherfucker who loves the films that no one else does.
Whether it’s a film that actually played in a grungy grindhouse theater — or a modern movie or TV show that captures the subversive fuck-o-rama spirit of those old exploitation films — this is the place to talk trash and gush over our favorite dark desires of cinema.
As a love letter to these films, Midnight Grindhouse made the show Blood Drive, which premiered on the Syfy network June 14th, 2017. Each episode either honors a particular sub-genre that the exploitation world made famous, or forges its own genre territory while capturing the grindhouse vibe.
Here are the bizarre movies that inspired us for season one:
Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man
Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion
Galaxy of Terror
Wake in Fright
