by wilwheaton-66374 | created - 26 Aug 2017 | updated - 27 Aug 2017 | Public

Grindhouse and Exploitation. Crown International Pictures, American International Pictures, Canon Film Group, Corman, etc. Inspired by trailers from 42nd Street Forever and Shock Festival, and Re/Search's Cult Cinema book.

I have deliberately left off the films we already know, like Trip With Teacher and Desperate Living, to focus on other releases that may be new to you.
