It is with slight trepidation that I link to things like this but it gave me a lot of happiness this week and almost seemed too good to be true. Cultrarare (as in Cult + Ultra Rare) is a website devoted to sharing full length exploitation pictures that were released on VHS back in the medium's infancy when videos were contained in colossal puffy cases and, unless you were a millionaire, you had to rent a VCR to view your movie. The webmaster seems to have been a devotee of some small town goldmine of a video store and cleaned up when they either went out of business or when they did the switchover to DVD. All the films on his site are easy to download and the legalities of it all are more or less legit, not so much because all the titles are in the public domain, but because the majority were released by low-budget outfits to begin with and nobody cared about most of the films when they were released let alone three decades later.
Several hard to find films that I've been searching for are here. Country music exploitation like Nasvhille Girl (1976) and the rare Peter Fonda/Jerry Reed trucker film High Ballin' (1978) were highlights for me as were the plethora of pictures belonging to odd genres like that of "wild packs of dogs attack" and some "Bigfoot exploitation."
The site also features plenty of rare 1970s television movies, some super obscure Russ Meyer and a behind the scenes VHS tape of the 1980 Cannes Film Festival with Dudley Moore. The forgotten mom and pop video store of the internet is yours to explore here.
*Note that it can take some time for a film to download (it does for me anyway), so your best bet is to download several at the same time to make it worth your while as it takes an equal amount of time to download fifteen at once as it would to download one. Right click on the "Download Now" bar for the movie you wish to have and save it to your computer as opposed to double clicking on the same spot.
