The slasher sub-genre lends itself beautifully to being sleazy. One of the mainstays of slasher flicks is a deranged killer, usually a dude, is running around all sneakily hacking and slicing his way through teenagers. A lot of those teens are usually hot chicks who are generally in various stages of nude. And those overly-hormonal young people are usually also involved in some sort of sex, drugs or, if you’re lucky, both at the same time. In the seedier, grimier examples like Lustig’s Maniac or Fulci’s New York Ripper, there is also the unfortunate side effect of misogyny running wild. That tends to throw a heavy blanket of mean-spiritedness on the whole atmosphere which, for some, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Continue reading

The rape-revenge sub-genre of exploitation films may be the roughest to watch. Brutal violence is bad enough, but when you add a sexual element to that brutality it takes the seat squirming to a whole new level. If watching one is that bad, I can’t imagine trying to make one. How would the direction of the pivotal rape scene go? “No, no. You’re not slamming your pelvis into her pussy hard enough. Now, roughly squeeze her tits. Okay, here is where you punch the fuck out of her face over and over. MORE CRYING, WE NEED MORE CRYING!” Christ, no thanks. You also have another conundrum; where do you take a film that has only one way to go? “Rape” and “revenge” is right in the genre title and it must be in that order. Sigh, this could get a little monotonous… Continue reading
