Silents and more at 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting :

The Airship Destroyer (1909), in which Great Britain’s answer to Georges Melies predicts the military applications of powered flight with eerie accuracy…

American Psycho 2 (2002), in which a bid to turn one of the more pointed satires of the last ten years into a long-running horror franchise meets with all the success that such a project deserves…

Black Mama, White Mama (1973), in which Margaret Markov and Pam Grier look way better in matching, ass-length prison smocks than Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier were ever going to…

J’Accuse! (1919), in which a ponderous wartime soap opera ducks into the nearest phone booth, and comes out wearing something even more surprising than tights and a cape…

Scream, Blacula, Scream (1973), in which American International achieves the seemingly impossible a second time…

and…

Weird Tales (1919), the forgotten great-grandpappy of everything from Dead of Night to Tales from the Dark Side: The Movie.
