Mike Vraney was inspired by his teenage job as a theater projectionist when he decided to transfer countless hours of film onto VHS and DVD. Vraney's passion was exploitation films — the splatter films of Herschell Gordon Lewis and the sexploitation masterpieces of Doris Wishman. On the Something Weird Video website, you can browse thousands of titles for purchase, both as DVDs and downloads. While it would be impossible to sum up all the greatness that the Seattle-based film distributor has put out over the years, here are some of the more notable Something Weird selections.
1. Something Weird (1967)
5. Let Me Die a Woman (1978)
6. Damaged Lives (1933)
8. The Adult Version of Jekyll and Hyde (1971)
9. Basket Case (1982)
10. The Cocaine Fiends (1935)
But wait, there's more!
So much more. Check out the entire catalog for educational scare films, sword and sandal epics, nudist camp films, and lots of really weird porn. And pour one out for Mike Vraney, who had the passion and the foresight to preserve these exploitation classics.
