Ozploitation movies - following the documentary 'Not quite Hollywood'

These are the movies cited in the documentary 'Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation!' by Mark Hartley (2008). The subject is the Ozploitation, with extensive interview of Quentin Tarantino (picking also his favorites). I decided to list them as they appear in the narrative of the documentary. This braces many era of australian movies, you'll see sex, comedy, horror...

'Fantasm comes again' (1977) produced by Toni Ginnane couldn't be added by the search engine, I don't know why because you can find it through name clicking. Maybe in a Yahoo way, this was an aussie way of putting 69 films on this, instead of 70. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076015/
