As far back as the 1930’s, B-Movies have existed in contemporary American culture. These movies came about with the idea of a double feature, the way for those suffering from the Great Depression to still attend their favorite blockbusters.
The second feature was often something that was low budget, otherwise known as the B-Movie. This second feature on a double bill was a cheap, independently made flick to hold people’s attention. Perhaps the most popular sub-genre of these B-Movies is the B-Horror movie. Even today, this sub-genre holds its reign as the king of the B-movies.
