You've heard of Hollywood, a town of tinsel and glamour, the town of Paramount, Columbia and MGM. But there is another Hollywood, a place where maverick independent EXPLOITATION FILMMAKERS went toe to toe with the big guys and came out on top! "SCHLOCK! THE SECRET HISTORY OF AMERICAN MOVIES" takes you behind the scenes with the legendary EXPLOITATION and SEXPLOITATION filmmakers of those golden "DRIVE-IN" MOVIE days. It's sexy! It's strange! And every word is true! Written by
Ray Greene (director of the film)
I saw this with my boyfriend. A real freakshow! COol weird movies from the
vaults -- stuff I never knew exiosted. I especially liked VAMPIRA. What a sexy beast! 10 plus - a movie you have to see it to believe it. There are movies in here with rubber head monster like "Mystery Science" and movies with naked
chicks with beehive hairdos plus lots of interviews with people who made the
movies or else were in them. I had never seen a single one of these films
before. My boyfriend says I should also mention: DOrris Wishman, David F.
Freeman... Here you write it : )
Okay. Snarker here. I love this movie. I am a big fan of "bad film" and cult
moviemaking. I can't believe all the people who were important to B-movies
from the 50s and 60s that they got into this film. The DVD extras alone are worth the 20 bucks.
