‘Shock Corridor’ & ‘The Brood’

On the first Wednesday of every month, an event in Montreal called “Grindhouse Wednesdays” screens exploitation films the way they should be seen – at midnight and in a gritty, grimy and legendary porn theatre called Cinema L’Amour.

“Grindhouse Wednesdays” which has already featured such legendary cult films such as Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Cannibal Holocaust, I Drink Your Blood and The Beyond (to name a few), will celebrate it’s one year anniversary next week. So in order to help promote the event, we here at Sordid Cinema decided to discuss the movie they will screen on their big anniversary. It’s one of our personal favourites, Shock Corridor by Samuel Fuller. And while we pay a visit to the insane Asylum, why not also take a look back at David Cronenberg’s over looked psychological horror film, The Brood

    The Alamo Draft House in Austin Texas has a similar series called “Weird Wednesdays.” Just saw “Confessions of a Young American Housewife,” a deliciously dirty and hilarious Sarno film from the 70’s. I wonder when the last time was that this film was played on the big screen!
