The Beloved B

by jennine on September 8, 2008

The A’s are overrated. A-list celebs don’t make reality TV shows or star in B movies, preferring to take their of set careers to the theater. Personally, I have always loved B Movies, especially ones that revolve around shoes, or at least have a pair play a major role in the loosely assembled plot.

The Town That Boars Me is a 15 minute web film done in a musical B-movie style. If you loved John Waters early films or the Rocky Horror Picture show, you’ll have an appreciation of the campy plot of a sociopath butcher boy/high heel fetishist. For such a short film by young director Ben Charles Edwards, it has an ensemble cast Starring Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Sadie Frost, Jodie Harsh, Zandra Rhodes, Dee C Lee, Natt Weller and Kelly Osbourne.

It’s pure camp, and while some people may prefer more polished cinematic features, I remain a lover of films that are slightly (or very) twisted.

Watch the The Town that Boars Me here:

Female Trouble

A John Water’s classic, because you know nice girls don’t wear cha cha heels.

Why no comments???? How can this be? Don’t people understand how much fashion comes from twisted B grade films.

This film is too much…running on the spot in high heels is one my favorite pass times.

And yes, SV has been good enough to ‘work the shoes’ for the Despotic Queen. Aussie’s like sticking

My exposure to B movies is purely because of my sister. She loves the genre and adores John Waters.

I love ‘em too. Have you seen Ed Wood? Starring the always-beautiful-and-perfect Johnny Depp. He portrays the titular earnest, angora sweater loving cross-dressing movie director Ed Wood. Though I think Ed Wood’s movies were probably considered C, D or E!
