Love exploitation? Then you'll probably dig this NSFW trailer for the doc Machete Maidens Unleashed!

08.17.2010

I said this in the title but I'm gonna say it again: This shit's NSFW!

But what I do think is safe to say is that we all here pretty much love a good set of boobs, gratuitous bits of ultra-violence, and charmingly low-budget monsters. And the place to be when it came to creating all that goodness was the Philippines, thanks to its lush jungles, cheap labor, and lax laws.

Filmmaker Mark Hartley (NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD) gives us all of this sweet knowledge and titillation in his latest documentary MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED!, the awesome trailer of which you can check out below!

The film will be playing at the Toronto International Film Festival next month as part of the "Real to Reel" film line-up. You can get more info on that RIGHT HERE.

Synopsis: Karate-kickin' midgets! Paper-mâché monsters! Busty babes with blades! Filipino genre films of the '70s and '80s had it all.

Boasting cheap labour, exotic scenery and non-existent health and safety regulations, the Philippines was a dreamland for exploitation filmmakers whose renegade productions were soon engulfing drive-in screens around the globe like a tidal schlock-wave!

At last, the all-too-often overlooked world of drive-in filler from Manila gets the Mark Hartley (NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD) treatment in Machete Maidens Unleashed!. This is the ultimate insiders' account of a faraway backlot where stunt men came cheap, plot was obsolete and the make-up guy was packin' heat!

Machete Maidens Unleashed! features interviews with cult movie icons Roger Corman, Joe Dante, John Landis, Sid Haig, Eddie Romero and a large assembly of cast, crew and critics, each with a jaw-dropping story to tell about filmmaking with no budget, no scruples, no boundaries and - more often than not - no clothes.


Extra Tidbit: John Landis... I'm really hoping BURKE AND HARE delivers.
