Electric Boogaloo and Machete Maidens Unleashed! Blu-Ray
Strap yourselves in and take an off-road cinematic rampage through the bowels of Hollywood's least-loved film studio, Cannon Films. Responsible for churning out a breath-taking cavalcade of hits and misses (including Death Wish II, Breakin, Invasion USA and Masters of the Universe) that showcased ninjas, nudity, creaky monosyllabic action heroes, threadbare plots and accidental moments of near-genius--the folks at Cannon botched plots, bounced cheques and burned careers--and in doing so forever changed the way movies were made and marketed.
MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED!
Join us for a non-stop Filipino femme-fest, all the way from the jungles of the Pacific via the trash cans of the critics! Boasting cheap labour, exotic scenery and non-existent health and safety regulations, The Philippines was a dreamland for exploitations auteurs whose renegade productions were soon engulfing drive-in screens around the globe like a tidal shlock-wave! This is the ultimate insiders account of a faraway backlot where stuntmen came cheap, plot was obsolete--and the make-up guy was packin' heat!
