Default Meet the Next Rocky Horrors: Tarantino's Hell Ride and Four Other Freaky Flicks

Think "midnight movie," and John Waters' Pink Flamingos or David Lynch's Eraserhead likely springs to mind. These '70s experimental flicks — deemed too raw and weird for mainstream audiences — flopped on initial theatrical release only to creep back as late-night fare. Now there's a new crop of films taking the express route to cultdom. Rather than banking on big box-office draw, these movies are playing up their fringe appeal with witching-hour screenings. Among them is the Quentin Tarantino-produced biker bloodbath homage Hell Ride, starring Larry Bishop, Dennis Hopper, and Michael Madsen (out August 8). "The thing you don't want," says writer-director Bishop, "is people walking out of the theater and going, 'That was nice.' This movie is not nice." Here's the next wave of outlandish night-frights invading a theater near you.
1: Hell Ride
High-octane bikes, buckets of beer, and a whole lot of booty — it's no surprise that Tarantino, the heir apparent of midnight movies, is behind this. QT tapped Larry Bishop, a B-movie legend, five years ago to make Hell Ride, telling him it was his destiny to produce the greatest motorcycle movie ever. "The earlier films always hinted at wildness," Bishop says. "We delivered." (He's not joking: According to Bishop, the first eight minutes depicts a full-on orgy.)
2: Sukiyaki Western Django
Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, best known for cult classics like Audition, Ichi the Killer, and The City of Lost Souls, pits a lone gunman against two feuding clans in this Asian-infused spaghetti (er, udon) western, out August 29. A classic '60s spurs, guns, and glory soundtrack rolls while Japanese actors sound out cowboyisms like "I reckon." A serape-wearing Tarantino even pops up as a gunslinger called Ringo.
3: The Midnight Meat Train
Adapted from Clive Barker's 1984 debut Books of Blood collection, Ryuhei Kitamura's deliciously horrifying slasher flick lives up to its inspiration. The gore fiesta stars Bradley Cooper (Alias) as a photographer investigating a serial killer lurking in the underground railways. What he finds is a singularly demented butcher with a very effective meat tenderizer.
4: Big Man
Japan Asian superstar comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto hits the US with this ludicrous mockumentary chronicling the life of a down-and-out superhero. A film fest hit — night owls will relish its over-the-top monster sequences and Ultraman references.
5: Speed Racer
Hey, Warner Bros. Why not pull a Showgirls and recast the Wachowskis' box-office bomb as late-night snack? It's got bad dialog, car chases, physics-defying stunts, and logic-defying plot points. Bonus: Audiences can throw bananas each time Chim Chim the chimp gets time.
