The salacious and uproarious hit of the Film Festival circuit, this feature length documentary explores the hidden history of the American Exploitation Film. Starting at the turn of the 20th Century, it digs deep into this often overlooked category of U.S. cinema and unearths the shameless and occasionally shocking origins of this popular entertainment. Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Robert Forster, it boasts exclusive interviews with filmmakers Herschell Gordon Lewis, Joe Dante, Larry Cohen, Jack Hill, Fred Williamson, John Landis and many, many more! Bursting with clips and scenes from more than 200 of the most jaw-dropping movies ever screened, it takes a fascinating look at the films, filmmakers, hucksters ‘- and hustlers who made it all happen.
American Grindhouse is poised to be the most comprehensive motion picture ever made on the subject of Exploitation Cinema. So sit back, enjoy the show, use protection, don’t yell at the screen and-if you come back from the snack bar alive-keep repeating to yourself: ‘It’s only a documentary… only a documentary… only a documentary…’
