Deucember is the GCDb's annual online grindhouse movie festival held in December. Film fans watch one classic exploitation/cult film per day (or more) and comment on them via a Twitter hashtag. We invite everyone that has the time and interest to join us in this event!
Our initial inspiration for Deucember came from both the yearly October horror celebration and the popular Noirvember event held on Twitter which focuses on film noir/neo-noir movies. Since our site covers a wide variety of international exploitation & cult cinema we wanted to find a month/theme that would reflect that and so we chose "Deucember" which is taken from the nickname of New York City's now famous grindhouse mecca 42nd Street aka "The Deuce" where a lot of these films played in theaters. One aspect that makes Deucember especially nice is that film geeks can watch/enjoy all kinds of genres, not just one.
