“Cult Chops” a monthly feature where each month we will be looking at a different genre of cult cinema as well as key actors and directors who established their legacies directing films from these genres.
Kicking off our first edition of “Cult Chops” we will be looking at “Biker Movies” which as I covered in my previous introduction for the this feature the biker genre is one which gave an early leading role to a young Marlon Brandon with “The Wild One”, it embodied the rebellious spirit of the 60’s while at the same time films like “Easy Rider” introduced a new independent style of film making free from the restrictions of the studio system.
The genre also equally noteworthy for being home to some equally bizarre oddities like the Bikers in Vietnam “Nam Angels”, The insane 100 bike strong funeral procession of “Stone” aswell as the frog worshiping immortal bikers of “Psychomania” so hopefully this first genre selection will provide some fun discoveries.
How to get involved
All you have to do is submit any of the following
- Podcast episodes
Really anything relating to the theme of the month can be submitted either via e-mail – email@example.com or on the LAMB forums with all submissions featured in a round at up at the end of each month. The hope being that LAMB’s already writing about these genres will get alittle more exposure while perhaps tempting others to wander away from the path of mainstream cinema and maybe check out some films they might not have otherwise watched.
Submission Deadline: 30th May
Round up to be posted: 31st May
