Welcome To The Deuce

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Welcome to my own little slice of 42nd Street. A place I never had the privilege of visiting, from an era I wasn’t even born in! However, it represents a time in which spirits were free but somewhat angered, artists could express themselves outside of studio restraint; while infiltrating the same studios they chose to ignore, and best of all; p0rnography went mainstream. How could you not hold a torch for an era that gave the world a Hollywood-style premier to a movie called Deep Throat only to then threaten legal action against its lead actor?

It’s a decade that remains as influential today as it was then. Imagine, if you can, Quentin Tarantino, Roger Avery, Robert Rodriquez, Eli Roth, Gregg Maclean, James Wan, Alexandre Aja, Ti West and Pascal Laugier, to name but a few who, existing had this movement never had happened. Dare to imagine further a world without Martin Scorcese, Paul Schreider, John Waters, George A. Romero, John Carpenter, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Wes Craven, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Joe D’Amato, Sergio Martino, Umberto Lenzi and Ruggero Deodato; all of whom would not have the fanbase they have today were it not for The Deuece.

It was a place where exploitation and art collided, and that is my aim with this site. To provide news and reviews from the wildest, artiest and dirtiest movies from around the globe, just like The Deuce did before me.
