Recommended Exploitation Films

"Exploitation basically means there is an element you can exploit. Whether it is nudity or sex or violence or a monster or just an idea. Lots of exploitation is just how outrageous is the idea, it's something to take advantage of in promotion, it's a hook to get them into the theater" - John Landis, American Grindhouse (2010)
