The next Pink Flamingo Burlesque show is going to have an outer space theme so I've been doing research on science fiction movies, especially old ones. Aside from watching the most obvious film for this research, Barbarella, I also came across a website of Public Domain Movie Torrents. The site has plenty of old science fiction films including the Flash Gordon series.
I'm not a big science fiction fan, but with titles like Attack of the Giant Leeches, this site is hard to resist and it has proved to be a great source for research and inspiration for our upcoming space themed burlesque show.
The most popular torrent seeded is Oasis of the Zombies: "An expedition searching for treasure supposedly buried by the German army in the African desert during WW II comes up against an army of Nazi zombies guarding the fortune."
It's great to see technology like Bittorrent which is most frequently used for illegal file sharing being used to legally share media that might otherwise be forgotten.
