Offbeat by Julian Upton
Offbeat by Julian Upton

OFFBEAT consists of over 100 reviews of obscure, forgotten and neglected British films from the mid-fifties to 1985 in chronological order interspersed with short overviews of trends in UK cinema such as Rock'n'Roll, Sex (of course) and The Children's film Foundation. These are not the obvious or widely known 'cult films' (so no Get Carter or Peeping Tom) but the lesser known, curios and oddities from Sitting Target to Slade in Flame, Girl in the Headlines to And Soon the Darkness, from the obscure B-movies to the inexplicably popular.
