During the "Golden Age" of the B-movie in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, the films were widely distributed and screened in older cinemas colloquially called "grindhouses," supposedly because the movies would be shown over and over again, grinding down the film. Since the dawning of cable TV and home video in TheEighties, few B-movies see theatrical release, but are typically produced as [[MadeForTVMovie TV movies]] or DirectToVideo releases, or released [[WebOriginal directly over the internet.]] The Creator/SciFiChannel (or [[XtremeKoolLetterz Syfy]]) in particular [[SyFyChannelOriginalMovie produces many original B-movies]], and ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' maintained interest in the genre throughout the '90s, with its rereleases of classic B-movies with three characters making snarky comments on the action. While many B-movies are "bad" in terms of writing and execution, some prove to be SoBadItsGood. Those that attempt seriousness are usually full of {{narm}}.
