Exploitation Movie Education: Not Quite Hollywood, Electric Boogaloo, & Machete Maidens Unleashed!


In this video, we take a deep dive into the documentaries of Australian filmmaker Mark Hartley, the man behind the massively-popular films Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation, Machete Madiens Unleashed, and Electric Boogaloo: the Wild Untold Story of Cannon Films! These three documentaries combine to offer an education in the history of exploitation cinema, charting entire decades of grindhouse, drive-in, and VHS-era movies from all over the world. All three films are available on hugely-expanded Blu-ray editions from Umbrella Entertainment, and feature hours and hours of special features! Join us as we explore the wild Outback of Australia, the humid jungles of the Philippines, and the bizarre world of low-budget Hollywood!
