Wondering why times are missing?

American Grindhouse

This cult-film-besotted documentary dives headfirst into the exploitation genre—a wide-open category of films that prospered between the '50s and the '70s. Among the filmmakers interviewed are Joe Dante (Piranha), Jack Hill (Foxy Brown), Herschell Gordon Lewis (2000 Maniacs), John Landis (Animal House), Ted V. Mikels (Astro Zombies), Don Edmonds (Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS), David Hess (The Last House on the Left) and Bill Lustig (Maniac). Bottom line: This is a treasure trove of crazy, sleazy, sexy, violent, awesomely entertaining trash cinema. 80 minutes
