The B-Movie Underground and Trash Film Festival brings their unique collection of international sleaze on Sept. 7-11 in the city of Breda in the Netherlands. Violence, gore, general grossness and perversion are, once again, near and dear to the heart of this fun fest.

From the U.S., the BUT Fest is screening a few modern underground classics while also celebrating a few of the old masters. Included in the lineup are Usama Alshaibi‘s mind-blowing Muslim sex worker flick Profane, Zach Clark‘s wild weekend of debauchery Vacation! and Dan Nelson & Drew Bolduc’s over-the-top The Taint.

Plus, BUT is honoring Cinema of Transgression mastermind Nick Zedd with several screenings of his classic works, such as Thrust in Me, Police State and Whoregasm, as well as his recent public access TV series Electra Elf.

Other films from around world include horror hits like César Ducasse & Mathieu Peteul’s Dark Souls, Carlo Ledesma’s The Tunnel, Nicolas Goldbart’s Phase 7 and Paul Naschy’s last film, the vampire epic Empusa. Then, there’s completely offensive movies such as Adam Rehmeier’s The Bunny Game, Jorge Molina’s Ferozz, Marian Dora’s Cannibal; a tribute to trashy American horror auteur Fred Vogel; and more.

On the short film front, there’s Waylon Bacon‘s wicked Help Wanted, Kevin & Brian Lonano‘s trippy sci-fi Martian Precursor and a ton more.
