Originally surfacing as a late-night season of experimental films on Channel 4 in 1997, and under the Stella Artois sponsored moniker of ’Cinema Extreme’, this was developed into a regular strand for FilmFour’s launch in the winter of 1998.
The 1997 season featured movies such as Eraserhead, Bad Boy Bubby and Naked Lunch and presented the off beat side of cinema. The FilmFour incarnation focused more on the controversial aspects of film and with this in mind preceded most of the screenings with an introduction by film critic Dr Mark Kermode.
Extreme Cinema was on Channel 4 sporadically between 1997-2005, sometimes showing films not seen on the FilmFour channels.
