Set up as a home for classic genre and vintage cult films and television shows, the service, which launches Wednesday, will have 400 titles available initially and anticipates doubling this before the end of the year, with a number of content deals underway. Titles range from American slasher films, Japanese Kaiju monster movies, Swedish erotica, Italian sword and sandal epics and Spanish horror. It aims to fill the gap between mainstream streaming services and more niche arthouse content providers, tapping into the legacy of genre films from before the year 1990.

“There’s been a significant gap in the streaming market for older genre films that don’t conform to the broad mainstream platforms’ profile and also fall short of more narrow arthouse appeal,” said Cultpix co-founder Patrick von Sychowski, who is also the founder of the website CelluloidJunkie.com. “Our aim is to give fans of cult films a home where they can find their favorite movies, as well as discover a wide variety of other titles from our global catalogue.”
Highlights include “Alice in Acidland” (1969), “Castle of Blood” (1964), “Champagne Rose Is Dead” (1968), “House on Bare Mountain” (1962), “Terror in the Midnight Sun” (1959) and “The Erotic Adventures of Zorro” (1972).
Content partners include American Genre Film Archive (U.S.),
