2012 B-movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival: Official Lineup

B-Movie Underground and Trash Film Festival logo with monster eyes

The theme for this year’s B-Movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival, held in the city of Breda in the Netherlands, is “Apocalypse.” So get ready to watch the world end dozens of different ways on Sept. 5-9 at various venues around the city.

The fun kicks off on the 5th with the German movie Hell by director Tim Fehlbaum. If you didn’t know, “hell” means “bright” in German and, given that title, this flick is set appropriately in a post-apocalyptic future where global warming has decimated the planet and surviving tribes battle for water and food.

Other post-apocalyptic visions include Milan Konjevic’s Zone of the Dead starring legendary zombie killer Ken Foree; Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s Bazillian underground hit Beyond the Grave about a world where magic and madness rule the world; and Rob van Eyck’s bizarrely twisted Afterman and Afterman 2.

Not all the films at the fest feature the end of the world, though. BUTFF will be debuting the highly anticipated new film from Spanish surrealist Carlos Atanes called Gallino: The Chicken System, a nearly indescribable movie that the filmmaker calls a “pornophilosophical movie.”

Plus, there are loads of movies filled with deranged maniacs and sick freaks, such as the controversial Morituris by Raffaele Picchio that features acts so sadistic many viewers don’t make it to the end of the film; plus there’s Matthias Olof Eich’s Break and Matt Farnsworth’s The Orphan Killer.

Other films in the lineup include Spencer ParsonsSaturday Morning Massacre, which is another big hit on the underground circuit that updates a beloved children’s mystery cartoon; classic ’70s exploitation flicks like Andy Sidaris’ Seven and Jerry Jameson’s Brute Corps; the documentary about accused and arrested Canadian makeup artist Remy Couture, Art/Crime; the ghost hunting Evil by Peter Bebjak; the “hooker reincarnated a gun” fun of Calibre 9 by Jean-Christian Tassy; and tons more.

As usual, the BUTFF is jammed packed to the gills with extreme cinematic visions. The full film lineup is below and please visit the official B-movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival website for more info.
