Exploitation Alley: HIGH SCHOOL HELLCATS!!


For this week’s Exploitation Alley, I decided to take it way back. Back to 1958 to be exact. A time where wearing pants was considered a form of rebellion (if you were female), and parents were the most unhip people ever.  Ok, maybe that last part is still valid, but either way, it was a […]

Exploitation Alley: THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (1974)!!!


If 1970’s possession films aren’t your thing, they probably should be. Most of the time they can be downright creepy, often the right amount of cheese, and there’s always a chance that you might get surprised with random boobs for no reason at all. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I just explained the film I […]

Exploitation Alley: CONTAMINATION .7

I decided to ask a friend for a recommendation recently (said friend being  Jerry) , and he suggested this epic, train wreck of a film. After viewing it, I still don’t know if I want to punch him and revoke my friendship, or bake him cookies, and give him a high five.  I mean, this film […]



This is one film that I simply could not believe I had never seen before. I have a space in my heart reserved for weird, trippy (and somewhat terrible films) films, especially if they’re in black and white…I just can’t get enough.  Alas, I went into this expecting something great, and within a few minutes […]

Exploitation Alley: THREE THE HARD WAY (1974)


I suppose I can blame this week’s Exploitation Alley on my best friend (and wife of Icons’ editor Jerry) for sending me a picture of a very shirtless, and very hot Michael Jai White as Black Dynamite. For some reason, ok…for many reasons I thought of the 1974 Blaxploitation classic THREE THE HARD WAY. This […]

Exploitation Alley: THE MIGHTY PEKING MAN!


One of the main things that sparked my interest in the Exploitation Alley film I chose this time was the fact that it was a Rolling Thunder Pictures re-release. Of course, the Q-man and I have a similar taste in films, so I had a great feeling about it. Upon viewing, the positive feelings I had […]

Exploitation Alley: THE BIG DOLL HOUSE (1971)!!


  I don’t know about you people, but I can’t enough of genuine, classic exploitation film that contain one or more of the following: gorgeous women who just so happen to be in a prison, a weird plot twist, a very sudden ending, some good ol’ fashioned revenge, and some Pam Grier. Lucky for us, this film […]

Exploitation Alley: FOXY BROWN!


When  people think of the Exploitation/Blaxploitation genres, many amazing movies come to mind. If you’re awesome, one of the films that would come to mind would be this special gem. Directed by one of my personal favorite directors: Jack Hill, this 1974 film is definitely a classic. Pam Grier steals the show, and instantly becomes […]
