  • Exploitation Appreciation Thread

    I've been an Exploitation Films lover for a long time always trying to soak up all the films up like a sponge.

    For those who don't know what Exploitation is, it's basically an genre that exploits something. Example:Sexploitation exploits sex or Spagetti western is made in Italy hint exploitation that. Personally, one of my favorite genres because of it's wide range of goodies.

    Recommend some films, write mini reviews or just talk about Exploitation Films.

    Current Top 10:

    1.)Street Fighter
    2.)Shogun Assassin
    3.)Rolling Thunder
    4.)Five Fingers Of Death
    5.)Walking Tall
    6.)Death Rides A Horse
    7.)2000 Maniacs
    8.)Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry,
    9.)Death Weekend
    10.)Psychomania

      I have a weakness for the named naziexploitation, polemical genre as they come. Which originated in the heyday of Italian experimental cinema, where the directors did not have any kind of censorship. But that the only obstacle that was retained low budget.

      Films like Love Camp 7 and Ilsa, are essential for me.

            I'll try to update this thread every now and then with some hit/miss exploitation titles for ya'll.

            Rolling Thunder (1977)


            Starring William Devane as a Vietnam vet who returns home after escaping a POW camp discovers that his wife is now remarried and his life is forever changed after a group of thugs cut off his right hand with a garbage disposal. With help from his friend/sidekick, played by Tommy Lee Jones, they seek revenge.

            I can thank Quentin Tarantino for helping me find this underground X-Po gem. You almost forget that this film is an exploitation film of how well it was made, hell it feels like hollywood movie done dirty. Screenplay by Paul Schrader, who from what I have read hated the movie with such a passion that he wanted his name off the film. 8/10

                  I love me some exploitation. Nunsploitation, lesbian vampire exploitation, women in prison flicks, rape/revenge flicks.. etc.. although i think this genre died in the 80s.

                    I really badly want to see this, looks awesome. You also reminded me of another Tarantino recommendation called "switchblade sisters" aka "the Jezebels" (1975). Looks like a fun exploitation but I couldn't find a DVD in the U.K.

                    I bought the Arrow edition of Savage Streets but it got lost in the post so I've not been able to watch it. Looks fun though.

                    House on the Edge of the Park and Night Train murders I really like as its gritty exploitation that has something to say. Death Weekend looks to be in similar vain so might check that out.

                    Think over Xmas I'll stock up on some exploitation, especially from Arrow as they put effort into these old gems.

                      To me, Exploitation films died out in '87. Even though you do see a good one here and there(Riki Oh,Death Sentence,Run & Kill,Braindead,Black Dynamite etc.)

                      For Ozploiation fans, I highly recommend watching the Ozploiation doc Not Quite Hollywood:The Wild, Untold Story Of Ozploiation.

                        Shit sucks these days. I'm glad to be finding exploit-nuggets here and there at times. My cinematic travels are probably mostly based in Europe lately.

                        Anyways... a two disc sounds way cool. I only own the original BU release. Gotta look into this. I thought about that film for days after seeing it.

                          The Female Convict Scorpion series is pretty much a must see for WIP/Exploitation fans. I'll also add this personal fav from the good ol' 80's.....

                            I'm unsure about WIP flicks as many just look like pornos lol. I trust Jack Hill though so I've ordered The Big Doll House and The Big Bird Cage as my introduction into the genre.

                            I've also ordered the following blaxploitations; Foxy Brown, Black Caesar, Truck Turner, Shaft, Blacula and Scream Blacula Scream. Got them all dead cheap so I'm pleased with my xmas spending.

                            Only previously seen The Mack, Coffy and Super Fly but I loved them all, such great fun. The characters, dialogue and story elevate these above typical low budget exploitations and should be appreciated by far more people.

                            Also if anyone is interested this blaxploitation documentary is on youtube (includes interviews with Tarantino, Pam Grier and others);

                              There are quite a few WIP flicks that are basically softcore porn, but The Female Convict Series isn't one of them. It does have some sexy time moments, but never goes into full blown porn mode. Trust me, it's MUST see.

                              I've also ordered the following blaxploitations; Foxy Brown, Black Caesar, Truck Turner, Shaft, Blacula and Scream Blacula Scream. Got them all dead cheap so I'm pleased with my xmas spending.
                              ^All great. Truck Turner may be my all time favorite blaxploitation film. 2 words.....PIMP FUNERAL!
