Joe Ziemba's Picks
I’m the Director of the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA), the founder of Bleeding Skull!, and my greatest dream in life (or after-life) is to eat pizza and ice cream with Doris Wishman, John Waters, and Shirley Jackson.
Lux Interior and Poison Ivy from The Cramps once said, “We had to make our own world because there wasn’t a place for us in this one.” From GLEN OR GLENDA to THINGS, from LET THE RIGHT ONE IN to DEATH BED: THE BED THAT EATS, that sentiment rings true for each one of my picks. I’ve dedicated the majority of my adult life to exploring and sharing outsider/DIY/underground voices in genre film. These movies inspire me on a daily basis, and I hope they do the same for you.
