Starz Encore has commissioned the production of an original documentary "Midnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream" focusing on the phenomenon of 1970's cult films, and the major continuing influence they have had on pop culture and modern society. The special, based on the book of the same name by noted film scholar and documentary filmmaker Stuart Samuels (who produces and directs), is set to air on Encore in Summer 2005. Appearing in the documentary are directors John Waters ("Pink Flamingos"), David Lynch ("Eraserhead"), George Romero ("Night of the Living Dead"), A. Jodorowsky ("El Topo"), Perry Henzell ("The Harder
They Come") and Richard O'Brien (creator and star of "Rocky Horror Picture Show"). Encore will present a host of "midnight movies" to accompany the special, including "Rocky Horror Picture Show," "Pink Flamingos," and "Night of the Living Dead" during the month.
