Favorite "Little Known or Low Budget" Movie?


Recommended Posts

Airedale from NY

The original 1968 Zombie classic "The Night Of The Living Dead" saw it at a drive in theater and it was one creepy movie back in the day.

Slingblade and Fargo are cult classics in this house.  I have memorized every line, I think.  

Strange Brew, starring Doug and Bob McKenzie from the Labatts commercials.....

The 1st Cohen brothers film "Blood Simple" still my favorite of all their films with the exception of "The Big Lebowski"

Loved Richard Pryor's sendup of golddigging pastors like Reverend Ike in this low budget film

Not sure if this one was mentioned, but BAT 21 which is based on a true story in 'Nam.  A great great movie despite having Danny Clover and Gene Hack man in it.

Rancho Deluxe - we must have watched this movie ten times while in the Persian Gulf in the summer of '84.  

 

Damn, that was when Buffet was great!

I don't think it was 'little known' back then, but is today.  No clue the budget, Disney made it.  One of my favorites...

"Follow me Boys"

That's not a movie. It's a reality show filmed at my house. I'm the old guy with the beard that's often left wondering what's going on and mumbling incoherent things.

The Buddy Holly Story.  A 1978 film with a $1.2 mil budget.  Gary Busey played Buddy and was outstanding.  Busey and the other two guys that played the Crickets did all of the music live for the movie.  No lip syncing.

I was thirteen "the day the music died" and still remember standing at the bus stop on that cold day in Feb and having one of the other kids tell us that Buddy Holly had died.

I was 15, and on my own, living in a greasy room above a Chinese restaurant in Northern Ont. where I was working for my keep while attending high school. I was woken up by the jukebox downstairs playing Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper...at the 7AM breakfast rush. I found out why after I came downstairs. It was truly a punch in the gut!
