My Exploitation/Sleaze Films
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.
Caligula 1979, R)
Caligula - La Storia Mai Raccontata 1982, Unrated)
Cannibal Holocaust 1979, NC-17)
Eaten Alive (Mangiati vivi!) 1980, Unrated)
Emanuelle e gli ultimi (Edited Version) (Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals) (Trap Them and Kill Them) 2003, Unrated)
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)
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)
Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain 2003, R)
Frankenhooker 1990, R)
Images in a Convent 1979, Unrated)
The Janitor 2003, Unrated)
Jungle Holocaust (Ultimo mondo cannibale) (Cannibal) (Carnivorous) (Last Cannibal World) 1977, Unrated)
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)
Monsturd 2003, R)
Reform School Girls 1986, R)
