This TV channel seems a 'goldmine' of obscure, weird movies I've never heard of. Sometimes they will even show classic foreign films.
The last one that seemed pretty interesting was:
Out Cold (1989)
with John Lithgow, Teri Garr, Randy Quaid and Bruce McGillhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098042/
(you may want to avoid paying attention to the Photo section as it gives some spoilers)
Unfortunately, it is of course edited and presented in Full Screen format. I have yet to see it beginning to end, but it seems interesting enough that I would like to see it in it's original form and in Widescreen. The only DVD I see seems to unfortunately Full Screen only.
There seems to be very little information on this film online.
Does anyone own the DVD/know more info on it?
Other strange movies/lost 80's/90's potential classics/B movie schlock I've seen on there:
Meet the Hollowheads
Deep Space (1988) - see the greatest bagpipe seduction scene ever...
The Census Taker (1984) - I may have mentioned this elsewhere when I first saw it. It has Garrett Morris from SNL fame. The weird soundtrack made by The Residents reminded me of the UK band, Clinic. Sure the execution of the dialog, acting, editing, etc. was off a lot, but I thought it was an interesting idea. Sometimes it reminded me of the fun trainwreck Troll 2, but then there were some nice sequences. Like Troll 2 this could probably be one of those midnight movie cult type films. If they set up some shows at arthouse theatres where The Residents made the soundtrack live it might generate a little buzz and get a Troll 2/The Room type following.
Some of these are hard to completely judge when they're edited for content, have commercial breaks, etc.. I would like a copy of all of these except Deep Space, though I may want the DVD so I can put the bagpipe seduction scene on YouTube.
