    Been doing a little research and watched this gem the other night.... "Act of Vengeance" (AKA Rape Squad). A classic 1970's drive-in film. True inspiration!
    Thoughts?

    Hmmmm… That opens an interesting debate, Z. Are grindhouse films like this true horror movies? Or are they more action-sploitation films? There are certainly elements of horror in many/most grind films, and they can be disturbing and brutal. "Cannibal Holocaust" and "I Spit On Your Grave" are also in the same mold, straddling the line between horror and pure exploitation.

    "Zombi 2" (aka "Zombie") is also a grindhouse classic, but also a more traditional horror movie.

    I think you're right...they would be exploitation...or better yet sex-ploitation films (with a little horror) that were designed for the kids at the drive-in's.
    I also watched "American Grindhouse", a documentary all about 'grindhouse' and the history of early films. I never knew there were some very racy
    films made in the early '50s before there were any laws as to content (or a rating system). Very interesting stuff....well worth a watch on Netflix if you haven't seen it.

    I'm looking to get that same type of feel for my HorrorFest film...and seems to me the DVX100b is the perfect camera for the job.
    Oh...and "I Spit on Your Grave" is in my que!

    I'd also check out "Sleepaway Camp." It's more of a slasher film, but it's very grind in its style, and sounds like it's right up the alley of what you're working towards.
