Last month I published an article here on WhatCulture! giving you my pick of 10 obscure films that I feel deserve a wider audience. The article turned out to be a big hit, so I’ve decided to do another list along the same lines.

Be assured that these next 10 choices are not just films that ended up on the cutting room floor the first time around. They all have genuine merit, and the reason I didn’t include them the first time around is that I wanted as wide a range as possible to recommend. This time around there’ll be more sci-fi and horror choices, as well as the odd comedy and even a Christmas film (hey, if Asda can have Santa’s grottos in August, I think I can get away with this).

As with the original article I’ll give a brief summary of each film, along with links to my longer written reviews and the downloadable Movie Hour podcast for each one. If you want an explanation of my interest in obscure and cult films, you can find it in the original article here.

So, without any further ado, let’s take another trip down some of the sadly little-known alleyways in cinema, and see what we can find along the way…
