Machete Maidens Unleashed
Genre: Documentary
Director: Mark Hartley
Stars: Roger Corman, Joe Dante, Sid Haig
***1/2

 

Though sadly lacking many machetes or maidens, this ridiculously entertaining documentary explores the robust Filipino exploitation movie-making scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Director Mark Hartley assembled interviews with key players like Roger Corman to form a poignantly nostalgic look at a forgotten period of outlaw filmmaking.
