I get a sense that a lot of you folks around here grew up during the golden age of exploitation films from the 60's-70's-80's. As I am now in my 30's, I get a great joy of discovering these gems of movies especially since the Tarantino / Rodriguez Grindhouse double feature. What are some of your favorite exploitation / grindhouse flicks?

I love all the Blax stuff from the 70s. Superfly, Truck Turner and The Mack are at the top of my list.

Going to watch "Hell Ride" tonite. Looks killer...

One of my favorites is Willie Dynamite, starring Roscoe Orman (who would go on to be the third actor to play Gordon on Sesame Street).

I watched it a few years ago. It was alright. I watched Piranha with my wife last weekend. I thought it was great!

The Corman version without question. Broken remakes are for assholes.

I love the Roger Corman version, I need to track down the shitastic sequel. James Cameron's directorial debut.....he kinda got thrown under the bus.
