Who wants to spend little shy of a tenner to see some manky new Hollywood merchandising advert in an anonymous, neon shrouded battery farm of a ‘leisure park’ multiplex, where you’re surrounded by noisily grazing lobotomites with their facile heckles? Well, my chum Herman over at giallo site Bloody Italiana has had a brainwave which might appeal to those of us sharing that sentiment.
He’s started up another film blog, devoted entirely to movies you can (legally) download for free! (Which given the TorrentSpy and isoHunt cases, along with the withering on the vine of the various DivX sites, could be the way to go for wallet-wary square eyes.)
Called Subprime Cinema, it mines sources like Archive.org for out-of-copyright and public domain features, and even streams them direct. In case you were worried, it’s not just crappy drive-in fare either, yer man Herman’s exercising strict quality control like any good boy from the Valleys – titles so far have included Swamp Women, Five Minutes To Live, The Sadist and Last Woman On Earth.
So what are you waiting for? Go check it out, peckerhead! GO CHECK IT OUT!
