BWW DVD Review: Severin Film's Amazing THAT'S SEXPLOITATION!
by Chris Gibson - Jun 2, 2016

In the grand tradition of MGM's classic That's Entertainment! (parts 1&2) comes the latest release from Severin Films called That's Sexploitation!, which takes us on a journey from silent cinema up to the 1970's when hardcore XXX films rendered them passe. It's a mind-bending excursion into over 2 hours of clips culled mostly from co-producer (the late, great) Mike Vraney's collection, which you can find on the internet under the site name of Something Weird Video. These films, some of which may seem misogynistic and exploitative (duh), are actually so cartoonish that they shouldn't be taken seriously except as examples of a forgotten age. Honestly, while there's certainly some shock value to be had here, you'll probably find yourself laughing hysterically at the more inane things that have been captured. At this point, Quentin Tarantino and his many imitators have picked the bones of grindhouse cinema clean, and to the extent that a lot what you see here is actually quite tame in comparison. The stuff that isn't is so over the top that your jaw will drop in astonishment. It's all here: nudie-cuties, filmed burlesque shows, the "roughies", exotic dancers, acid era body painting, etc. This is definitely on the must-see list of all psychotronic film junkies, and should be required viewing for everyone else.

by Matt Tamanini - Jul 21, 2016
