The Incredibly Strange Film Show.

Posted on 11 June 2008 by Jaz

The Discovery Channel was a few steps behind when they began what was actually a re broadcast of the Incredibly Strange Film Show. Sometime around 1988 The BBC network premiered a titillating treat for lovers of bizarre movies. The Incredibly Strange Film show focused on the films and filmmakers who you were not likely to see on Siskel and Ebert. As campy and tongue in cheek as the films it featured the show was hosted by Jonathan Ross a sarcastic and funny geek who unfortunately never experienced the recognition in the states that he did in the UK. Each episode took at look at the work of such cult luminaries as George Romero, Ted V Mikels, Jackie Chan, Stuart Gordon and many more. Every one of the episodes is a joy to watch whether you are familiar with the artist or not. The show served as a platform for these men and woman to receive the credit they so obviously deserve and as a great way for ravenous cinephiles to learn a little something more about the filmmakers and actors that they loved so much.

Unfortunately you cannot go out to your local big box store and pick up the complete series on dvd. However, thanks to the wonders of the world wide web you can see The Incredibly Strange Film Show in all its glory on YouTube.

So go my filthy minded friends. Brew up a batch of beer milkshakes and popcorn and bask in the Trash Cookie love that is The Incredibly Strange Film Show.

    This is pretty awesome. The first show is pretty aweosme… John Waters listing all the titles he’s received is classic; “The Pope of trash” I love it.
