10 Modern Day B Movies You Need to Watch
Catch a double airing of Machete on Sun, May 11 at 8p - part of IFC and Alamo Drafthouse Presents "The Big Bads" Month.
Some claim that exploitation movies peaked in the 70s, that era of seamy sex and vulgar violence that filled grindhouses up and down 42nd Street. But B movies still exist, and some of them are just as great as the classics. Here are 10 of our picks for the greatest modern day B movies.
10. Dead Snow
A group of students go up into the Norwegian mountains and have to fend off an unceasing attack of Nazi zombies in this gleefully gory B-flick.
Master stuntwoman Zoe Bell as a female gladiator forced to fight to the death? This hits all of the B movie targets brilliantly.
8. Piranha 3D
Man vs. nature is a classic B movie subject, and this 2010 horror comedy reveled in the gory frenzy of nubile bodies getting chewed up by fish.
7. You’re Next
Adam Wingard’s 2011 slasher flick captures the B horror aesthetic perfectly – weird, memorable characters, a claustrophobic location and tons of blood.
6. Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil
Eli Craig’s backwoods horror comedy is remarkably self-aware for a B movie, with great performances and some surprising twists.
