Five Underrated Films from Various Directors

I started a new feature at my blog titled Five Films, where I have guest writers contribute a list of movies they feel are underrated and would love more people to see.

First up is a set of picks from Dante Tomaselli, writer/director of SATAN'S PLAYGROUND, the new TORTURE CHAMBER and the upcoming ALICE SWEET ALICE update.

Expect new installments once every week or two. Lots of great contributors lined up!

Sounds interesting.Are you exploring newer films or vintage pics from name directors that sort of fell through the cracks ?

I'm leaving it up to the writer -- no restrictions.

For example, Dante picked 4 from the '70s, and a short from the '40s.

Just to clarify, I'm not writing about five films from certain directors -- I'm having directors (and other people -- future installments have comic artists, creature designers, journalists, etc.) pick five films they feel are underrated.

It's a pretty neat little article and I look forward to the future installments.

Granted, I was confused by the description above as well. I think it was because you listed the 5 films that Tomaselli created in the write-up, so I thought, at first, that the article was going to be about him, not by him.

A new Five Films line-up, only at Cinema Arcana! This time out, DEADBEAT AT DAWN (1988) and THE MANSON FAMILY (2003) director Jim VanBebber picks a quintet of underrated favorites he feels warrant more attention. Some nice obscurities represented that you'll hopefully seek out!

A new Five Films column, only at Cinema Arcana! This installment takes a stroll down Memory Lane with DARKNESS (1993) director Leif Jonker, who's not only celebrating his birthday, but also celebrating the film's 20th Anniversary! (And what better way to celebrate than with Vultra Video's just-released Limited Edition VHS-only release of DARKNESS: THE METAL CUT, which restores the '90s thrash tunes to the film's soundtrack!) Some cool choices as Leif picks a quintet of underrated favorites he thinks more people should know about -- check 'em out!

I liked Jonker's, as he actually goes into depth as to WHY he picked the films. I guess I'll have to check out Fear No Evil sometime, as I always wanted to see it back in the day (Jonker seems to be around the same age as me, based on the way he recalls the era). But people on this site usually slam it, so I've skipped it.
