The original source for science-fictional sleaze, Something Weird Video, just launched a new video download service, letting you grab entire weird exploitation movies that your parents felt guilty sneaking out to watch. And they're as cheap as their original budgets.
For just $6 a pop, you can own any one of hundreds of classic pieces of cinema trash, including some movies we've used for our "found footage" feature — and some movies we will no doubt plunder in the future. Don't you want to witness the terrible awesomeness of movies like 50,000 B.C. (Before Clothing), The Adult Version Of Jekyll And Hyde, Atomic Rulers Of The World, Atomic War Bride, Attack From Space, The Curious Dr. Humpp, Curse Of The Headless Horseman, Deep Jaws (featuring "nympho mermaids"), The Dicktator (about a birth control that accidentally sterilizes almost all men), Dr. Sex, Electronic Lover, Evil Brain From Outer Space, Hercules Vs. The Moon Men, Monstrosity (AKA The Atomic Brain), Space Thing, and so many others.
These movies are not pretty, they're not classy, and they're not politically correct. They're probably not even coherent or made using screenplays or editing or any of that fancy film school stuff. But they are films you won't forget watching. How can you resist downloading a movie that's described as "Doris Wishman's penis transplant movie"?
According to the site's FAQ, these films are in m4v format, but can easily be converted to avi format, and should be playable on your ipod or other video player. They're all around 700 mb, and it doesn't sound like there's any DRM. At $6 each, they're as cheap as most used DVDs.
