    It's mostly budget, but there's some more unofficial criteria. Mostly, they're low budget, short, movies that are exploitative and strictly adhere to the limitations of their chosen genre.

    I as a rule care some nicely written script. i will't watch a action picture horror or no longer with crappy communicate. different than for that I even tend to lean in the direction of the psychological or supernatura horror. i do unlike super bloody movies like observed or Hostel, they have a tendency to haven't any actual tale merely further and extra motives to coach blood.

    Originally meant to support the main feature at the flicks (hence b rather than a) but now a catch all for cheaper made movies ...they were usually horror or sci fi as they were the cheapest to make.
