Directed by Stuart Samuels


Released: 2005


86 minutes

A mesmerizing feature documentary that tells the hidden history of the classic “Midnight Movies” — El Topo , Night Of The Living Dead, The Harder They 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, and re-invented the medium while pushing the boundaries of bad taste and social taboo.


Official Selection (Outside Competition), Cannes Film Festival 2005
