In the 1960s David Friedman and H.G. Lewis had already created nudie cinema and were looking for something new to make money since the market was being flooded with naked women. During a brainstorming session the two decided that making a movie filled with gore would be their next project and Friedman suggested it be set in a Nazi concentration camp full of torture and degradation. Lewis, abhorring any kind of violence that seemed too realistic, vetoed the idea and they decided to go with the over-the-top idea of what would become the first gore flick, Blood Feast. Not surprisingly in 1975 Friedman would produce the most legendary nazisploitation film of all time; Ilsa the She-Wolf of the SS starring the iconically sexy Dyanne Thorne.

It's the beginning of a new year which means we must again look back at the year before and reflect upon what we deem superlative. 2016 was a fantastic year for horror and exploitation films, old and new. There were some very good new movies produced and there were lots of amazing releases of some older classics and fan favorites. The continuing epic release schedule of Vinegar Syndrome and the insane limited releases from Arrow Video were among the highlights, but many more companies had superb years. So, without further ado, lets take a look at our favorite releases and companies of 2016!
