A lot of my cult movie watching highlights in 2017 seemed to be re-watches of old favourites.
Like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) which gets better with each viewing.
And much the same can be said for Forbidden Planet(1956).
Dracula’s Daughter (1936) also stands up remarkably well to repeat viewings.
As for movies I hadn’t seen before, Hammer’s sci-fi horror effort Quatermass II (1957) was particularly good.
While The Black Raven (1943) is a very fine Old Dark House-style movie.
If you want sexploitation with some actual emotional depth then Joe Sarno’s Daddy, Darling (1970) could be just what you’re after.
Felicity (1978) is an Australia Emmanuelle rip-off that is quite a bit better than the film it's ripping off.
And Career Bed (1969) has all the outrageousness you could desire in an American sexploitation flick.
