The Midnight Vault: Where exploitation films deemed not good enough, not stylish enough, not popular enough to be remembered by the modern film industry are locked away, ne’er to see the light of day again.
I am the vault’s guardian: I hold the keys to these forgotten treasures, and I view them on a daily basis. Call it curiosity or call it perversion, but I’ve grown to love the contents of The Midnight Vault and I want to share with anyone and everyone about the films that have been locked away, destined to be forgotten by the many and known only to the few.
This blog dedicated to pure slices of exploitation cinema. Films unseen and forgotten by mainstream media.

Read as I delve into the cinematic contents of my Midnight Movie Vault, and bring to light films that were only suitable for the dirty grindhouse cinemas of 42nd Street, or the dark cellars of horrorheads and gorehounds.
Understand as I take a critical look at the history of exploitation cinema and discuss the films that should be recognized for their accomplishments, or disregarded for their failures.
Know my point of view, my dedication, my reasoning, and my personal film preferences as I dig ever deeper into exploitation cinema’s greatest creations, its greatest disasters, and its greatest absurdities.
Read on, and learn about what makes the realm of exploitation cinema so appealing.
