    I've watched a few revenge films recently, always been a fan of this sub-genre the primitiveness must appeal to the old reptile brain that lives in the dark recesses.

    Just for the sake of it I'll list many I've seen; (assume i mean original)

    The Hills have Eyes
    Last House on the Left
    Hitch Hike
    I spit on your Grave
    The Night Train Murders aka Late Night Trains
    Thriller a Cruel Picture aka They call her one eye
    Extremities
    La Settima Donna aka Last House on the Beach
    Ms. 45
    House on the Edge of the Park

    Craven is a great writer and Last House is a provocative tale of how revenge is an endless cycle in which we all lose our humanity. Many of the "cash-in" flicks attempted to provide subtext (probably in imitation and probably to avoid censorship) most failed but some remain relevant as revenge is such a timeless theme.

    I highly recommend Hitch Hike, it stars Franco Nero, David Hess and Bond Girl Corinne Clery. In my eyes its a total gem and an exploitation with intelligence.

          I really got to start watching more of these films.

          The 2 that shocked me the most were:

          Cannibal Holocaust since the animal death scenes were real, the giant tortoise scene was harsh, today if a bird so much as bent a wing on set there would be public backlash.

          Salo is just straight out cruel and sadistic.

          Other's I've watched and own are:

          The last house on the left (70's)
          I spit on your grave (70's)
          Eaten Alive
          I drink your blood
          Hobo with a shotgun
          Machete

          I really need to watch Island of Death, I keep hearing about it every time exploitation films are brought up.

          Great thread! I got some other titles to search for now.

              Yeah I watched cannibal holocaust for the first time recently and found it shocking. The turtle scene is horrible and not sure I want to watch it uncut again.

              Don't get your hopes up about Island of Death, I wouldn't say its a stand out of the genre. It is worth watching though, nice locations and its rather odd and provocative.

                I agree the animal stuff is pretty hard to watch in Cannibal Holocaust.

                Other than that I consider the film a masterpiece.

                Then it's my job to teach them how to do it, how they will be able to master a rockhard dick with their skillfull tongue - simple. I did that once, I'll do it again, no prob for Santa.

                          Rolling Veageance (1987)


                          Not sure if I would classify this as a Exploitation, but definitely a B movie that was late for the party. Been trying to catch this film since I heard about it a few years ago and finally caught it and was pleastely entertained, needs a dvd release ASAP!

                              Not really considered exploitation, but Two-Lane Blacktop is a good car film:
