Edgy Film Streamer

Artsploitation Films, whose titles span horror, cult, erotic and other edgy genres, has launched a channel on Film Festival Flix, a platform for individual subscription streaming services.

The channel specializes in “intriguing, unsettling, unpredictable and provocative films” from around the world, for those “long numbed by filmic predictability.”

A quick perusal of the channel’s catalog confirms its fare might not be for everyone.

Artsploitation’s library includes The House with 100 Eyes, which is billed as “the grisliest, darkest horror-comedy ever imaginable.” The plot: Ed and Susan are a suburban American couple who make snuff films.

Horsehead involves a young woman who, returning to her family’s estate for her grandmother’s funeral, has recurring nightmares of a horse-headed monster.

Hidden in the Woods, in Spanish with English subtitles, is about two sisters who live with their deformed brother and sadistic father in the Chilean countryside. It features “extreme violence, prostitution, sexual assault, buckets of blood and even cannibalism.”

The Artsploitation channel on Film Festival Flix offers several payment options. Monthly subscriptions are $4.99, with the first month free. There’s also a $54 annual plan. Titles are also available to rent on demand.

Film Festival Flix is home to a handful of other genre channels, each of which you can subscribe to separately or in a bundle. They include The South East Asian Global Martial Arts Channel, Halloween Horror Fest, Equus Film Festival, Vertical Life Film Festival, Mountain and Adventure, and IndieFest International.

All channels, except Artsploitation Films, also accept filmmaker submissions.
