Synopsis

Blood! Breasts! Beasts! A brutal orgy of ghastly terror! Busty babes, mutated monsters and midget secret agents, the Filipino genre films of the 70s and 80s had it all. Saturating drive-ins around the world, the Philippines became a dreamland for exploitation filmmakers with cheap labour, exotic scenery and non-existent health and safety regulations! The all-too often overlooked world of Filipino exploitation flicks gets the Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood, MIFF 08) treatment in Machete Maidens Unleashed! Featuring interviews with Roger Corman, Joe Dante, John Landis, Eddie Romero and a host of filmmakers, actors and critics, each with a story about a genre with no scruples, no scripts, no boundaries and – more often than not – no clothes.
