being currently obsessed with double bills thought i'd share the love and ask for any furtehr suggestion...

Leon / Le samourai - moviedrome did this double bill back in the day and it works, moviedrome screened lots of great double bills as i remember!!!

Warlock / Season of the witch - if you feel like extra cheese and are of a certain age that VHS 'classics' such as warlock float your nostalgia boat - plus the added bonus of nic cage playing a templar knight to follow!!! ... i imagine no one else has EVER attempted this double bill which makes it all the better in my book :)

Psycho and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre- Both based loosly on the same story.
The Thin Man and Withnail and I- for the most bad ass drinking game ever
Battleship Potemkin and Society- there's like some class struggle stuff I think.
Swingers and Shame- For fun.

A Bret Easton Ellis Double-Bill?

Less Than Zero (1987) and Rules of Attraction (2002)

I think this would be an interesting double bill because of the two films' similarities and differences, in both their approach to adapting Easton Ellis' work and also their tones. RoA plays more closely as an adaptation (although still quite loosely with the source material) and LTZ infamously changed the tone of the piece completely, mostly just taking it's characters and leaving out a lot of the book's message.

However the films' both still include (mostly) Easton Ellis' (in)famously apathetic and morally ambiguous and bankrupt character - the major of both films (and books) both being quite similar (for the most part).

I was thinking of including American Psycho but I think that it's more interesting using the the two contrasting adaptation, seeing as they have both similar ideas and characters and themes at the base of the source material.

Both predatory films but different enough to feel like you're not watching the same film.

I think Mud and The Kings Of Summer would make a good double bill. They share similar themes and ideas but differ tonally. Not to mention they're both brilliant.

Fright Night (2011) and Disturbia make for a great double bill.
