    As for "Exploitation" type movies, have you seen Machete and Machete Kills? I love them. The first one, Machete, starts off as a pretty straight forward action movie with a very high body count (mostly machete caused) but about three quarters of the way through just seems to say to hell with it and goes to straight camp. Has a HUGE amount of A, B and C list stars , Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Steven Seagal and the star Danny Trejo (yeah , you know him as soon as you see him). It gets a little "preachy" towards the end along with the camp, but its an awesome movie. Machete Kills has an even higher body count but is played for the camp value almost from the start. Highly entertaining.

    Yes I've seen them both, I much prefer seventies and eighties exploitation though. They're good reworks, though and pretty accurate. I prefer the original period stuff though. Particularly the horror. I do like Danny trejo and he definitely looks and acts the part of an old exploitation actor

    I not so much into nudies, which given my reputation on here will surprise virtually everybody. Have you seen scum of the earth by hershell Gordon lewis? If your not cheering on the baddies in that then you don't know how to enjoy movies!

    you may also really like the movie 'leatherface', if you like the devils rejects, so long as you can forgive it its connections to the chainsaw massacre series, which I can't

    I liked some of Mr. Lewis's movies "Color Me Blood Red" and "2000 Maniacs" spring to mind. Like him better as someone who pushed the limits and opened the doors to later Directors/Producers to ........... dare I say it?, do it better. Without him Wes Craven probably would not have been able to find the mainstream success he did. "Re- Animator" is still near the top of my Horror film list. Without Mr. Lewis's ...... lead ..... it probably wouldn't have been made much less have the success it did.

    I love re-animator and I love Barbara crampton in this and especially from beyond! If you remember her in from beyond you'll definitely know why I loved her in it!!!. I used to pester Jed, who was a horror movie director on here, to put me in a movie with her!
