B-movies are seemingly more mainstream than they have ever been before. Whether from years past or produced in the present, such films have received more attention due to the ubiquity of the internet, allowing people to not only discover such films but also share them and bring them to people’s attention.

That was the case for Dangerous Men, a unique film directed by Iranian filmmaker John S. Rad. It tells the story of  a woman (Melody Wiggins) seeking revenge for the murder of her fiancé. Check out the NSFW trailer below:


Well then. It certainly embraces the expectations of a B-movie (‘B’ for Bonkers?), with a tongue-in-cheek approach, low-quality vibe and next-to-nothing production value. And who knows what the acting and action scenes are like. Oh, and that plot. Here is the official synopsis, courtesy of Drafthouse Films, who is presenting the film:

“After Mina witnesses her fiancé’s brutal murder by beach thugs, she sets out on a venomous spree to eradicate all human trash from Los Angeles. Armed with a knife, a gun, and an undying rage, she murders her way through the masculine half of the city’s populace. A renegade cop is hot on her heels, a trail that also leads him to the subhuman criminal overlord known as Black Pepper. It’s a pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, brain-devouring onslaught of ’80s thunder, ’90s lightning, and pure filmmaking daredevilry from another time and/or dimension. Blades flash, blood flows, bullets fly and synthesizers blare as the morgue overflows with the corpses of Dangerous Men.”

It sounds like a combination of Kill Bill and Taxi Driver, and I’m sure many others. Dangerous Men was completed in 2005 but took a long, winding road to finding a distributor. A press release from Drafthouse Films explains that process and how they strategized to bring the film to screens:

“Festival bookings and traditional distribution were a dead end, so (Rad) brashly chose the route of “four-walling,” an industry term for a theater rental, simply to allow the film an exhibition at any possible public venue. Rad coordinated screening times with a half dozen independent cinema owners, placed miniscule, affordable ads in neighborhood newspapers, and even took to the airwaves on local access television and radio then waited for the people of Los Angeles to discover his masterwork.

 

Then a strange thing happened…they did.”


Unfortunately Jon Rad passed away in 2007, so he doesn’t get to witness the recognition Dangerous Men has been receiving. But with the admiration of some in the LA film community and distribution via Drafthouse Films, the film is getting plenty of attention.

Dangerous Men opens in select theaters November 13. Check out a series of character posters below.
