Uncouth

Uncouth loves subversive films and exploitation of all kinds and is a graduate of California State University Monterey Bay with a BA in film, and an alumni of Allan Hancock College. He combs through yard sales, swap meets, and dying video stores hunting for lost exploitation gems. He runs Toxic-Graveyard.com, a film and novel review site and also puts out an occasional podcast. He will never stop listening to metal. It is in his DNA and has been since he tender age of 11.

Question 1) VCRs owned (how many VCRs do you have in your posession):
I currently own a Sylvania 4 head VCR with no remote.

Question 2) Five must-see-before-you-croak videos:
How can I just choose 5? Impossible. So here's the first five that come to mind:

  1. Brain Dead (1990) aka Paranoia, not Peter Jackson's Braindead.
  2. Biohunter (1995)
  3. Cutthroats 9 (1972)
  4. Open Season (1974)
  5. TerrorVision (1986)

****Super Bonus****

  • American Grindhouse (2010), not on video but a valuable resource of info on exploitation flicks in the US.
  • Death Hunt (1981) because Charles Bronson is so much cooler than Chuck Norris.

Question 3) First VHS you owned:
The first VHS I owned was either Dead Alive or the Road Warrior, I can't remember which.

Question 4) Most prized VHS:
My most prized VHS is The Video Dead. A film that's criminally overlooked in the zombie cannon. Killer artwork too.
