I had to make this list. I'm just getting too many films that defy any other classification.

Baise-Moi 2000,  Unrated)
Okay, let's face it - this movie has no redeeming value and no social commentary or message it is trying to convey. This is simply a modern exploitation film with poor production values. On a positive note, I thought the two female leads were excellent. I was quite convinced that they really were the homicidal, lowlife dirtbags that they were portraying. 2-1/2 stars for this bit of pornographic Euro-sleaze.
Blood Sucking Freaks (Bloodsucking Freaks) 1978,  R)
Blood Sucking Freaks (Bloodsucking Freaks)
This certainly has a few shocking scenes and plenty of blood, but I've seen it done better. As an exploitation film it is okay, but I expected more from such a 'notorious' film. Just didn't live up to its hype in my book. Oh well.
Caligula 1979,  R)
This has to be one of the strangest movies ever made. A combination of classical actors and Penthouse pets, as well as a mixture of epic historical drama and hard-core porn. I wonder if this was the most expensive porno ever made?
Caligula - La Storia Mai Raccontata 1982,  Unrated)
Cannibal Holocaust 1979,  NC-17)
Cannibal Holocaust
Very graphic and disturbing film. This one actually lives up to its hype. The slaughter of real animals takes a strong stomach to watch.
Eaten Alive (Mangiati vivi!) 1980,  Unrated)
Eaten Alive (Mangiati vivi!)
This one is not nearly as effective as "Cannibal Holocaust", but it still delivers some good gore scenes.
Emanuelle e gli ultimi (Edited Version) (Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals) (Trap Them and Kill Them) 2003,  Unrated)
Emanuelle e gli ultimi (Edited Version) (Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals) (Trap Them and Kill Them)
Hooray! More sleaze/horror from Joe D'Amato. This one obviously tries to cash in on the cannibal horror genre from the late 70's - early 80's. It is only moderately successful, as the story is bad, and the gore effects are substandard. Also, D'Amato's infamous sex scenes are strictly in the soft-core with this effort. Not a bad little way to spend 90 minutes though!
Emanuelle - Perché violenza alle donne? (Confessions of Emanuelle)(Emanuelle Around the World) ,  Unrated)
Emanuelle - Perché violenza alle donne? (Confessions of Emanuelle)(Emanuelle Around the World)
I don't even know what category to put this under. There's not quite enough horror to be a horror flick, there's not quite enough sex to make it a porn flick, and it's certainly not dramatic, suspenseful, or funny (at least, not intentionally). This is just a strange film that has no other purpose than to shock you. I guess it does that fairly well.
Emanuelle In America 2003,  Unrated)
Emanuelle In America
Woohoo! More sleaze from Joe D'Amato. This one tries to be a thriller about the snuff film industry, but the abundance of sex scenes is really distracting. In fact, the whole snuff industry plot almost seems to be an afterthought. Full of hot sex scenes and cheesy sleaze. Fun for all!
Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain 2003,  R)
Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain
Yay! Porn stars getting killed and mutilated! Does it get better than that? Unfortunately, no it doesn't. This laughable movie is only saved by some really well-done gore scenes.
Frankenhooker 1990,  R)
I love this one! You can't get much cheesier than this. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves bad movies as much as I do!
I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman) 1978,  R)
I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)
This one is really gruelling to watch. The rape scenes are some of the most graphic I have ever seen, and the men who commit them deserve their messy ends. However, this movie never gives us much of a conclusion. She kills her attackers. The end. That's it?
Images in a Convent 1979,  Unrated)
The Janitor 2003,  Unrated)
The Janitor
This movie is a trip! If you don't mind poor production values and bad acting, then see this one. If you prefer "quality" films, then stay away. It has some genuinely funny moments, and pretty decent gore for a film that looks like it had a budget of $6.00. I liked it!
Jungle Holocaust (Ultimo mondo cannibale) (Cannibal) (Carnivorous) (Last Cannibal World) 1977,  Unrated)
Jungle Holocaust (Ultimo mondo cannibale) (Cannibal) (Carnivorous) (Last Cannibal World)
This is a great movie! Deodato made a good movie with a good story, and a decent cast. It's got some great scenery and some awesome cannibal gut-munching gore scenes. It even has real animals getting killed, but not in the exploitative way that his later "Cannibal Holocaust" used. In this flick, the animal violence is more like watching a nature documentary. I highly recommend it, it's one of the best of the cannibal horror genre.
Massacre in Dinosaur Valley 1985,  Unrated)
Massacre in Dinosaur Valley
Oh my god, this is a terrible film that attempts to cash in on the cannibal horror film genre of the 70's and 80's. Bad acting, bad dialogue, and not very good special effects. Big load of dinosaur crap!
Monsturd 2003,  R)
I have to give this thing at least 3 stars. It's low-budget and utterly ridiculous, but damn - it's got a strange charm about it.
Reform School Girls 1986,  R)
Reform School Girls
B-Movie trash featuring caged women in lesbian shower scenes. There's also some plot about a troubled girl overthrowing the evil warden or something like that, but who cares?
