A documentary that looks into the seedier side of the entertainment industry that is both lifelong and shameful. Narrated by Robert Forster, this in-depth documentary uncovers the origins of the grind house market from the invention of the motion picture camera up until the 1970s. The Documentary is divided into categories of sub-genres from propaganda films of the 1930s up until the golden age in the 1960s and 1970s decades. Featured in the documentary are filmmakers: John Landis, Joe Dante, Allison Anders, Fred Olen Rey, William Lustig Jeremy Kasten and Lewis Teague, Film Historians: Eric Schaefer, Eddie Muller, Kim Morgan, Actors: David Hess, Bob Minor, Fred Williamson, Judith Brown, and Film Legends: Herschell Gordon Lewis, Jack Hill, Larry Cohen, Jonathan Kaplan, and Don Edmonds. Running Time: 80 Minutes. Written and Directed by Elijah Drenner. Warning: This film is not for everyone! This documentary contains: Explicit Gore, Nudity, Sexual and Drug Content, Language and Disturbing Images. This film is an interesting expose` of films that have never before been seen by the public since the beginning. A carny festival of low-budget films with an exploitative nature.
