No-Budget Nightmares – A Fistful of Nightmares (Year in Review)

NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES

 

Since the beginning of August I’ve been writing up weekly articles on the best and worst of No-Budget cinema, mixing reviews, interviews with low-budget filmmakers (and crew) and a bi-weekly podcast (with Daily Grindhouse contributor Moe) into a glorious mess.

 

And I want more.

 

Yeah, it’s been a rough ride. For every PANIC BUTTON or ISLE OF THE DAMNED there’s been a BARELY LEGAL LESBIAN VAMPIRES or, even, HIP HOP LOCOS. But I’m just getting started, and there’s still plenty of ground to cover before I’ve covered this (rightly or wrongly) maligned category of film-making.

 

But before we can look forward, it’s time to look backward. Here’s a history of NO-BUDGET NIGHTMARES (so far).
