Erotic Hunt (1984)


(Original Title: Caçadas Eróticas) Three unrelated stories from Brazil (just like A Taste of the Customer from the same year), one featuring female punks who live in a junkyard and rape men.

Dead Doll (2004)


A sculptor makes a lifelike replica of the wife he strangled.  The doll proceeds to kill everyone who lays eyes on it.  The movie gets shit on a lot, but there's a very haunting quality to the film in large part due to the mysterious death of the actress who plays the titular doll.

See Me, Feel Me, Take Me (1971)


The title is clearly a play on The Who song, and the story is one we've seen a million times before in exploitation films: a naive girl arrives in the big city, becomes a prostitute, gets into trouble and finally must choose between a tragic end or fly the straight and narrow.  That old chestnut.

Classical Romance (1984)


Classic example of porn chic - where it lands squarely in that "thirtysomething" / "Big Chill" zone Boomers were going through at the time.  Lots of Kramer vs. Kramer, On Golden Pond, Tootsie, Tender Mercies type shit. You could go to this porno and tell yourself you're seeing a respectable couples romance - and you wouldn't be wrong.

Knock Outs (1992)


Like Miami Models and a million other bikini movies from the nineties, a group of girls work together to earn money by doing something where they're barely dressed. 

Hot Thrills and Warm Chills (1967)


One of the four films directed by Dale Berry, the man who gave us Hip Hot and 21 which had many of the same cast. This one involves three ladies who plan to steal a crown from the King of Sex at the Mardi Gras celebration.

Erotic Nights of the Living Dead (1980)


(Original Title: Le notti erotiche dei morti viventi) Filmed in tandem with Porno Holocaust (1980) with the same cast and crew. 

Talk Dirty to Me (1980)


Often cited as one of the best films to come out of the golden age of porn.  (I could have said one of the seminal films to cum out of the golden age of porn... but I'm better than that.) This Anthony Spinelli flick spawned an untold number of sequels. 

Lesbian Schoolgirls and the Pleasure of Perverting (1983)


(Original Title: Colegialas lesbianas y el placer de pervertir)  An Andrea Albani film about two conniving greedy bitches who attempt to get a relative's fortune through seduction and deceit.

Tentazione (1988)


An Italian erotic thriller about a rich woman who gets played by a photographer and an up-and-coming model.  But she'll have her revenge.

Dirty Pool (1970)


A cheap softcore flick featuring sexploitation all-stars Neola Graef and Uschi Digard.  A wealthy couple are sexually assaulted by a couple of hippie swingers.  A good time is had by all.

Olga's House of Shame (1964)


Mawra's Olga series begins with White Slaves of Chinatown (1964), then Olga's Girls (1964), this film and finally Mme. Olga's Massage Parlor (1965), which is sadly considered lost.  There were other Olga films over the years (ex. Olga's Dance Hall Girls in 1969) but they aren't canon. 

White Slaves of Chinatown (1964),

Mawra's Olga series begins with this film, then Olga's Girls (1964), Olga's House of Shame (1964) and finally Mme. Olga's Massage Parlor (1965), which is sadly now considered lost. There were other Olga films over the years (ex. Olga's Dance Hall Girls in 1969) but they aren't canon.

Brigitta (1967)


Another 1960s Nick Millard film, so you know what you're in for: dimly-lit stylistic B&W imagery with no dialog, only narration by a beautiful but unhappy woman who lives a detached and tragic life.

Heterosexualis (1973)


John Hayes made some of the most compelling, odd, and diverse exploitation movies of the seventies. After Golden Girl Rue McClanahan turned him down for marriage, my man Hayes went on to make some great trashy weird-ass films (including The Hang UpMama's Dirty Girls and Sweet Trash). This movie in particular is among his most insane.  I hate when movie posters don't even try to represent the film itself.  I get it was just a way to get butts in seats, but this poster is so far from illustrating this movie it's not even funny.  This is a bizarro sexy comedy; the poster makes it look like a generic straight-ahead porno.  Whatever.  Let's not get hung up on the poster - and check out this memorably strange piece of cinema sleaze.

Intimate Lessons at the School Desk (1981)


(Original Title: Intime Stunden auf der Schulbank) Typical cheap trash from Jürgen Enz.  He's not exactly a good filmmaker, but he does capture the Euro-eighties vibe quite well.

The Great American Girl Robbery (1979)


(AKA Cheerleaders' Wild Weekend) Cheerleaders from three schools take a bus for a competition in Sacramento.  Along the way, they are taken hostage.  It's a traumatic experience, but the girls still find the strength to dance topless for their kidnappers.

Up Up and Away (1984)


File this with Party Plane (1991) with Pacific Banana (1980) and Bikini Airways (2003). An small airline is in danger of going under unless the owner can come up with a way to come up with the money.

Olga's Girls (1964)


Mawra's Olga series begins with White Slaves of Chinatown (1964), then this film. Olga's House of Shame (1964) and finally Mme. Olga's Massage Parlor (1965), but the film is sadly now considered lost.  There were other Olga films over the years (ex. Olga's Dance Hall Girls in 1969) but they aren't canon.

Strange Compulsion (1964)


A medical student is obsessed with voyeurism, so he sees a psychiatrist to cure him of his deviant sexual behavior.

Everybody Loves It (1964)


A nudie-cutie which parodies TV shows of the day - shows so old even I didn't get the jokes.  Fortunately, it's not necessary to enjoy this cheesy risque romp.

The Vampire of the Freeway (1971)


(Original Title: El vampiro de la autopista; AKA The Horrible Sexy Vampire)  This vampire is like an eighties slasher - taking out naked women ten-little-indians style.  

Like Wow! (1961)


A hobo finds magic glasses that allow him to see women naked.  He uses them to get free stuff in a small suburb.

Lampshades (1988)


(Original Title: Abatjour) Yes, it's another Malù movie... but it's not just another Malù movie.  This thing is so densely packed with naked women it's insane.  None of it makes much sense, it's just deliriously erotic. Not quite hardcore, but it gets mighty close.  One of Malù's first movies, and among her most explicit.

A Big Love (1995)


(Original Title: Innamorata) Another Italian Malù film; this one's about a nerdy guy who finds himself surrounded by people who want him to get laid. Go figure.

Fire in Her Bed (1972)


A standard Nick Millard film from this period: stylistic shots of drugged-out dolls dubbed with pretentious narrative poetry. Starring Donna Stanley and featuring sexploitation hall o' famers Ann Perry and Barbara Mills.

Playing Dads (1978)


(Original Title: Jugando a papás) A rich couple can't have children and are denied adoption because their too old.  So, they try a more unconventional approach.

Things to Come (1976)


In the future, we will be obsessed and hypnotized by television, addicted to porn, working in cubicles, and ruled over by technocrats... oh, wait that's right now.  Well, it's the depiction of the dystopian future in this film. 

Virgin and the Lover (1973)


A weird adult film starring Eric Edwards as a guy who lost his wife in a car accident and now can only love a mannequin. 

The Teacher of Forbidden Pleasures (1981)


(Original Title: La Prof Enseigne Sans Preservatif) The poster for this French adult film proclaims it was number one at the box office in the US.  A big nope.  It is a beautiful picture though... a rather bad movie, but beautiful nonetheless.

Girls Are for Loving (1973)


Third in the Ginger trilogy: Ginger (1971), The Abductors (1972), and Girls Are for Loving (1973) all  starring Cheri Caffaro. These films are so weird - they play like a Charlie's Angels or Mod Squad episode... then suddenly you're hit with graphic nudity and bondage.  Yes, S&M is the hallmark of these films even though the scenes don't seem to fit at all within a movie that seems like it could be a boring TV movie.

The Nurse, the Queer and the Horny Don Peppino (1981)


(Original Titles (Italian & Spanish co-production): La moglie in bianco... l'amante al pepe/ La enfermera, el marica y el cachondo de Don Pepino) Lino Banfi stands to lose his inheritance unless his son can get married and have a kid.  The only problem is that he believes his son is gay.  Let the politically incorrect comedy ensue...

Pleasureville (2000)


Originally aired as a Sex Files episode, the movie is about aliens who run a video store where the tapes cause the customers to become aroused when they watch the video cassettes. Not only does it take place in a video store (which is awesome) but also features tons of late-nigh cable regulars including Michelle von Flotow, Jenna Bodnar, Regina Russell Banali, Nancy O'Brien, Brandy Davis, Jill Tompkins and even Linnea Quigley!

Physical Attraction (1984)


An adult film about a prostitute who strives to be an Olympic track star.  Audacious eighties workout clothes abound.

The Wonderful World of Girls (1965)


A Harry Novak nudie-cutie about a bumbling fool who keeps getting caught in compromising positions by his domineering and homely wife. Cinematography by László Kovács just a few years before Easy Rider.

Psychedelic Sex Kicks (1967)


There were a surprising number of "hippie documentaries" in the late sixties. They basically amounted to poor excuses to "ooh and aah" at these crazy naked hippies with their drugs, weird spiritualism and free love.  As an example, check out Like It Is (1968).

Nightshift Nurses (1988)


A cheap-o John Leslie flick about sexy nurses and the sexual shenanigans they get into on the night shift at the hospital.

Hitcher in the Dark (1989)


(Original Title: Paura nel buio) Umberto Lenzi helms this film about a rich boy with mommy issues who drives around in an RV picking up girls to torture and kill.

Lovers Lane (1986)


Forgettable porno starring Tracey Adams who reminisces about the sexual escapades which occurred on Lovers Lane.

Porno Holocaust (1981)


A hardcore film from Joe D'Amato which incorporates mutants and the horror genre, with a nod the cannibal films that were popular at the time.

A bunch of theater students confine themselves to an apartment for a weekend.  Orgies ensue. 

Devil's Kiss (1976)


(Original Title: La perversa caricia de Satán) A Gothic Euro-horror film with all the elements of the genre: a dark and ancient castle, seances, girls wandering the halls with candelabras, satanism, zombies, and sex with dwarves.

Caged (2011)

Blue Beach (1982)


(Original Title: Playa Azul) Rich chicks find love and sex on the Canary Islands/

The Wonderful World of Sex (1978)


(Original Title: El maravilloso mundo del sexo) A plot-less clusterf**k of a movie where three couples watch a sex film and get aroused. Featuring Susan Estrada and Verónica Miriel having lots and lots of sex.

Love Camp (1977)


(Original Title: Frauen im Liebeslager) Another WIP film from Jesús Franco.  While there's plenty of abuse to be found, this one is more focused on the skin than the usual over-the-top violence found in the WIP films we know and love.

She Mob (1968)


A "she mob" kidnaps a gigolo in hopes that a wealthy woman will pay the ransom.  A sexy private investigator dressed like a super-spy is hired to retrieve her gigolo.
