B movies developed during the golden age of hollywood as the low budget “b side” on a cinema double feature, where the big budget feature was the “a side.” In the 1950’s the presentation of double features in this format declined, but b movies still continued as films outside of the studio system, usually characterised as low budget, poor quality and with subject matter of niche, minority interest. However, many b movies proved to be popular and also, often of good quality despite the typical low budget. B movies were often the kind of films that big studios could not or would not make. They were often exploitative in nature - with sex and violence being the obvious subject matter - and often dealt with with niche (for the time) subject matter such as science fiction or horror. Today, the b movie has no real meaning anymore in the film business. Genres and budgets are mixed. Big studios make low budget films if they think will make money. Some films deliberately copy the b movie style, such as the grindhouse flicks from Robert Rodriguez and Tarantino. But these are popular, large distribution films with moderate budgets made to a good professional standard, not like many of the b movies of the 1950’s . This is because film distribution is much easier now because cinemas don’t control what we can and cannot see anymore. The wide choices people now have and the many different ways they can watch films - be it on their phones, tablets, tv’s or laptops - means the movie market is most definitely a viewer’s market.
