    Favs/dislikes: 66:0. A podcast for those of us who love genre cinema. Everything from martial arts, action, westerns, horror, exploitation and just plain trash cinema.
  2. A Guide to Pinky Violence's icon

    A Guide to Pinky Violence

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. "Pinky Violence" refers to a genre of Japanese action cinema which began in the late 1960's and continued through the mid 1970's. Typically featuring a young female protagonist, these films often told stories of revenge or gangland violence. Despite the word "pinky", these films were not usually softcore (although a couple of titles toe the line). While certainly characterized by considerable nudity as a means of luring in a waning cinema audience, sex scenes were limited, typically in furtherance of the plot, and extremely mild in comparison to the "Roman Porno" line being produced at Nikkatsu. Instead, the focus is on wild, outrageous action, colorful direction and a spirit of youthful energy. The genre primarily refers to a line of films released by Toei (one of Japan's major studios), however two series from rival series mirror the sensibilities enough that they are often included: Toho's "Rica" series, and Nikkatsu's "Stray Cat Rock" films. This list is based on the list suggested by KamuiX in his article "The World of Pinky Violence, An Intro." It is grouped by series, rather than chronology, with stand-alone films appearing at the bottom of the list. IMDB's coverage of Japanese films is not always great. The following films should be on this list, but lack an imdb entry: Zubekô banchô: Tôkyô nagaremono (AKA Delinquent Girl Boss 2) Terrifying Girls' High School 4: Animal Courage All three films in "Joshi Gakuen" series Bankaku Rock Hell's Angels: Crimson Roar
  3. Eaten Alive: Italian Cannibal and Zombie Movies's icon

    Eaten Alive: Italian Cannibal and Zombie Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 24:0. A viewer's guide to accompany the book "Eaten Alive" by Jay Slater, which discusses Italian cannibal and zombie films from the years 1964 to 1994.
  4. The Mammoth Book of Slasher Movies Chronology's icon

    The Mammoth Book of Slasher Movies Chronology

    Favs/dislikes: 23:0. Lifted from the Chronology of Movies section of Peter Normanton's "Mammoth Book of Slasher Movies," which would more accurately be described as an overview of gore/exploitation movies than a history of slasher movies. This replicates the order of the chronology as printed in the book, so all examples of movies being out of chronological order in the below list are mistakes made in the original publication.
  5. House of Psychotic Women: Compendium of Female Neurosis's icon

    House of Psychotic Women: Compendium of Female Neurosis

    Favs/dislikes: 19:0. Every film listed in the appendix of Kier-La Janisse's 2012 memoir "House of Psychotic Women." From the book: "[…]while by no means comprehensive, this appendix is a cross-section of horror and violent exploitation films that feature disturbed or neurotic women as primary or pivotal characters […] Admittedly some films stretch genre definitions, and others fall completely outside of the centre but are nonetheless important progenitors for genre characterizations."
  6. Russ Meyer Filmography's icon

  7. An Exploitation Independent Checklist's icon

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. From the book Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents by Stephen Thrower. (Not complete but will be whenever I stop being lazy, there's just a lot of stuff to add to ICM and...I'm lazy.)
  8. Mondo Macabro's icon

    Mondo Macabro

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. The entire library of boutique label Mondo Macabro. Mondo Macabro is a collection of horror, exploitation, and just plain weird films curated by Pete Tombs, co-author of the book Immoral Tales: European Sex & Horror Films 1956-1984.

  10. Trailers from Hell's icon

    Trailers from Hell

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. These are all the films covered on the fabulous website Trailers from Hell. It is not an official list, per say, nor is it a personal list, just a collection of the films that are discussed on their website, which gives great recognition to some of the best cinematic outliers.
  11. Pam Grier Filmography's icon

    Pam Grier Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. The filmography for the beautiful and sexy actress Pam Grier. Only her feature fims are added here.
  12. 30 Great Exploitation Films You Probably Haven’t Seen (Taste of Cinema)'s icon

    30 Great Exploitation Films You Probably Haven’t Seen (Taste of Cinema)

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. All movies are exploitation movies, if you really think about it. Each one seeks to elicit interest from viewers, attempts to exploit something in them that will cause them to take time out of their busy schedules and consume whatever visual story has been conceived by the filmmakers. However, generally when people call something an “exploitation movie”, the implication is that the producers are cynically trying to entice audiences with the promise of sex, blood, and sheer tastelessness. Such assumptions aren’t entirely groundless, and more than one movie mogul (Roger Corman, for example, who appears on the following list no fewer than three times) has made a living playing to the public’s baser instincts. But that doesn’t mean that the final product can’t be a blast to watch, or can’t be as respectable, in it’s own way, as any A-list picture. At the very least, many exploitation films, whether objectively good or bad, provide a kind of entertainment that is direct, unvarnished, and specifically calculated to please. The list you are about to read gives a rough outline of exploitation movies that might be lesser-known in many cases, but are no less worth the investment of time it takes to watch them for people who like their fun visceral and uncompromising.

  16. Pete Walker Filmography's icon

    Pete Walker Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Pete Walker (born 1939 in Brighton, Sussex) is an English film director, writer and producer, specialising in horror and sexploitation films, frequently combining the two. His films often featured sadistic authority figures, such as priests or judges, punishing anyone - usually young women - who doesn't conform to their strict personal moral codes, but he has denied there being any political subtext to his films. Because of the speed with which he had to make his films, Walker often used the same reliable actors, including Andrew Sachs and Sheila Keith, the latter playing memorable villainesses in four of Walker's pictures.

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. A collection of the weird, disgusting and more than often shamelessly exploitive mondo films.

  19. Kino Lorber Presents Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture's icon

    Kino Lorber Presents Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. In the mid-1930s, when the Production Code tightened the leash on Hollywood’s Depression-era decadence, cagey entrepreneurs stepped in to fill the void, producing independent features on sub-Poverty Row budgets that fed audiences’ hunger for the illicit. While the Pre-Code films had demonstrated the art of nuance and the power of suggestion, exploitation films were ham-fisted exposés of a wide variety of hot-button issues, most frequently drug abuse and sex hygiene. By framing themselves as social problem films (almost always beginning with a lengthy title scroll stating their educational intent), exploitation films granted themselves a license to depict all the vices major studio films were forbidden to dramatize. Although vulgar by design and technically poor in execution, exploitation films occasionally surprise the viewer with moments of emotional poignance and a gleeful disregard for convention. In a period when independently-owned “Main Street” theaters were being choked out of business by the studio-owned theater chains, exploitation films provided a welcome injection of revenue, since these films could always be depended upon to attract a crowd, due to both the scandalous subject matter and the carnivalesque way in which they were promoted.
  20. Shocking & Disturbing EXTREME Cinema's icon

    Shocking & Disturbing EXTREME Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. For a movie to be here, it has to SHOCK. Either for it's depiction of gore, sex, violence or any other theme, it's all about taking things to EXTREMES. These are not to be viewed by people with weak stomachs, sensible hearts, or narrow moralistic taboos. After watching them, you'll probably need therapy or a vomit bag, so better think twice before pressing "play"! Everything you never thought you'd see on film can definitely be found on any of these titles. (in no particular order):
