A list I'm compiling of films that Ferrara has said that he admires or has cited as an influence. Suggestions welcome.
Note: The first 18 films on the list are titles that he listed as top ten favourites in two separate lists from 2012 and 2020. The rest is listed alphabetically.
Sight & Sound
Cahiers du Cinema (December 2019 issue)
Twenty Two (The Twilight Zone, 1961)
The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street (The Twilight Zone, 1960)
The Zanti Misfits (The Outer Limits, 1963)
20/20 (Way Out, 1961)
