Watch An Exclusive Clip From Mark Hartley's MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED
Mark Hartley's Machete Maidens Unleashed - a delirious look at the American exploitation films produced in the Philippines during the 1970s and 1980s from the director of Not Quite Hollywood - is freshly available on US DVD and to tempt your pocketbooks we've got an exclusive clip from the film below.

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.
We've got loads of coverage in the archive for this one, so check the links!

I saw this last night on Netflix. It is a very nice film covering movies I saw back in the VCR days. A lot of emphasis on Corman's stuff. I really didn't piece together the confluence of events that led to the demise of the Philippine industry until I saw this.


Anybody know where I can get some of those New World trailers?
