Welcome to Coolasscinema.com! This is a site dedicated to the propagation of strange and exciting cinema (and television) from all over the world as well as America's own grand tradition of exploitation cinema classics. From the front (and back) seats of drive in's across the nation, to the sleaze pit theaters of New York's famed 42nd street, to the comforts of home watching fantastic cinema on the Late Show, remember those classic (and sometimes classless) films of old and even discover some new ones.
Assorted Bits & Pieces: Lucky McKee's and Jack Ketchum's 'The Woman' Causes Sundance Uproar

Apparently, Lucky (MAY) McKee's new film, THE WOMAN, written by the talented and provocative sleaze peddler, Jack Ketchum, has caused quite the stir during its Sundance Festival premiere. A few websites and forums have already posted this video and it's quite funny. It looks legit enough, but could be a PR stunt. Either way, this obviously upset moviegoer will no doubt contribute to the notoriety of this film that should be "confiscated and burned". If you haven't already seen it, you can see the youtube video here...
The outraged viewer gets even more frustrated when you here the roar of claps and laughter from audience members seemingly enjoying the show. The upset patron then begins lobbing insulting comments to the Sundance worker trying to get him and his folks to exit peacefully. Apparently, they weren't aware of what kind of film they were getting into.
The film deals with a lawyer capturing the cannibalistic matriarch of the clan of savages wiped out during the closing moments of the average, but disturbing flick, OFFSPRING (2009). In an effort to civilize this wild woman, the determined lawyer puts his own family in serious danger. I'm actually quite curious to see what the fuss is about, myself. Ketchum's previously adapted 'book to film' was inferior to the other movies based on his novels, but it had some ghoulish shocks and surprises that made it worthwhile (including 'The Woman'), if not up to the gruelingly high horror standards of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, THE LOST and RED before it.

I've been a huge movie buff since childhood catching old horror and monster flicks on Shock Theater and kung fu movies at the drive-in during the late 70's and early 80's. I've had a long time fascination with, and appreciate all genres of fantastic cinema, good and bad. One fans cheese is another fans juicy steak. I like both equally and seldom find a film I truly dislike as I will find something of interest in just about anything. The bulk of the films or tv series' seen here are mostly from my childhood, or films I own in what has become an Amazing Colossal DVD collection.
