Best B-movie docs

What are the best documentaries about b-movies, fandoms, and weird or niche interests which often involve a widespread community, such as zombies?

I'm looking to fill in the gaps of my knowledge while also watching the original films...or at least the MST3K versions.
Stuff like Trekkies (fandom-related), a non-fiction Shadow of the Vampire perhaps (film-specific), or documentaries such as The Boy from Out of This World
or Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story
(neither of which I've yet seen, but which appear to deal with the history of b-movie productions as well as specific films).
Also great would be stuff like Zombie Girl (though not about the making of a b-movie per se, there's still the fandom and weirdness elements).
