'Shouldn't Have Started the Civil War, Then': Southern Gothic Tales

Southern gothic describes films set in the American south, with deeply flawed, occasionally grotesque characters inhabiting areas in decline.

Make sure to check out recent addition 'Winter's Bone' for a great, gritty coming-of-age story!

'Movies Like Inglourious Basterds': Neo-Grindhouse Action

Why is Grindhouse, AKA exploitation-cinema, back in vogue? Undoubtedly it has something to do with the influence of cinematic maverick Quentin Tarantino. But perhaps it's also because Hollywood has realized all people really want is explosions, nudity, and chicks with machine guns for legs!
