WARNING! The following slide show about important events in the history of exploitation cinema, presented in honor of the remake of the stirring 1978 masterwork “I Spit On Your Grave,” has been banned in over 27 nations! It contains the most shocking language, the most explicit sex and the most horrific violence in the history of civilization. Under no circumstances should persons under the age of 21 be allowed to see it! The management of this website further recommends that persons with heart conditions consult their doctors before clicking through to the first slide due to its depraved and horrifying nature. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!



To forestall the possibility of commenters expressing outrage that a favorite film title, image or event has been excluded, Salon has invested unprecedented resources in the creation of this important work. An elite team of Nobel Prize-winning philosophers, Oxford scholars and criminologists worked round the clock for six years compiling the 7,000-plus images and 10 million words of text that you are about to read. The management of this website believes any definition of exploitation that you could possibly devise will be more than satisfied by this array of TRULY SHOCKING and ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL events in film history. We feel confident in declaring it the all-time definitive work on its chosen subject, and promising that it will thrill, stun, titillate, edify and arouse you beyond your wildest imaginings.*

And now: ON WITH THE SHOW!

*Offer void within the United States of America and all English-speaking countries.
