One of the best moments of the doc comes when Quentin Tarantino is describing a scene from one of the films discussed when he says something to the extent of: (paraphrased) "the best thing about exploitation cinema is that initial reaction as your watching something and you're thinking, 'is this really happening…wait…it is…oh my God! How did they do that? What were they thinking? Why would the actors agree to that?' That uncertainty is what makes exploitation cinema so great." Because it's a pretty good bet that the clips from the movies profiled in this doc are the best parts of those movies (for as "fun" as these types of movies are...they're really boring if you aren't watching them with friends) this is a must see doc for fans of exploitation cinema.
A question for exploitation fans after the jump...
Does anyone have reviews of the following films? I would love to read more about the following movies:
The Howling III
Next of Kin
Mad Dog Morgan (in the documentary they show a lot of on-set footage from this film…it's worth the price
of rental, or ownership, for those moments of Dennis Hopper all coked-out)
The Man from Hong Kong (another film that is discussed at length…there are some great stories to this one, too)
Stunt Rock (my brother and I have watched parts of this one...)
Wolf Creek (or any other modern Australian horror films)
Leave the links to your reviews in the comments section. Thanks.
