The Grindhouse Cinema Database (GCDb)
The Grindhouse Cinema Database (GCDb) is a wiki-powered database and fanzine about classic cult and exploitation cinema. It provides pictures, reviews, DVD availability information, articles and is accompanied by a message board. It emerged in its present form in 2007 and was founded by Peter Roberts, a veteran member of The Quentin Tarantino Archives, in cooperation with Sebastian Haselbeck. It has since grown into an in-depth wiki-zine full of exciting articles and retrospectives about classic international exploitation cinema, reviews of DVD releases and more. Its message boards are a growing meeting place of cult movie aficionados from all around the globe. The Deuce effectively uses its FlickR, YouTube, Myspace and Twitter presence to reach a wider audience and also to recreate the spirit of these good old days through videos, music mash tapes and vintage mock advertising graphics.
