Player Affinity writes: "For all aspiring filmmakers, ultra-low budget films are a way in -- the one sliver of light that cuts though the dark of big-budget Hollywood. Even more than that, tackling your own financing gives the creative freedom that ultimately catapults many filmmakers to a much more prestigious status. Though these ultimately flawed films are not everyone’s cup of tea, so to speak, the impact some of the features on this list have had to their respective genres is undeniable. In honor of the release of two tiny-budgeted films over the next two weeks, Paranormal Activity 2 and Monsters, Player Affinity is running down the very best of no-budget filmmaking."
Clerks 2 was way better than Clerks, I dont know if it had a larger budget thus making it hard to get on this list or not. If im not mistaken Hot Rod was also a low budet film that should be on this list.
I personally hated Napoleon Dymonmite and hate the actor, he is not good at all.
I didn't know Halloween had that small of a budget. Very interesting to know that one of the biggest horror icons now started off that way. Mad Max is a good one on here, as is El Mariachi, and Living Dead.
I don't think Blair Witch should have been #1. It was okay, and good at the time, but the film hasn't aged very well. The others have mostly stood the test of time (couple haven't been out long enough to know).
Seriously, that movie is terrible.
