  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    I grew up with this stuff, and so I love it. I would minimize the gore, though. Great bad horror movies don't need it. I've seen a history of european grindhouse, and they seem more exotic.

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Extremely entertaining history of the seedy side of cinema from silent days to pre-code, the development of Noir, nudie-cuties, roughies, exploitation films and 60's-70's porn cinema, all put into historical perspective.

  3. Thomas's rating of the film American Grindhouse

  4. mjgildea's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    A pretty comprehensive history of exploitation movies with excellent interviews, namely from Eddie Muller & John Landis ("THE ROUGH HOUSE, BOYS! THE ROUGH HOUSE!") The final Kim Morgan interview segment and its deafening awkward silence fallout cracked me up & I felt like I learned a lot. The best part of American Grindhouse was many of its interview subjects admitting to the fact that most of these movies are crap.

  5. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    ★★★★ Exploitation 101.

  6. codyhunter's rating of the film American Grindhouse

  7. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Purely informative with "Making buck is good" punchline, but capable of setting the record straight for exploitation movies fans.

  8. melissa_rb's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    "The movies have become our contemporary mythology"

  9. Henrique Amud's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Fun and informative, but not much else.

  10. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Very fun and could be informational if you know nothing about grindhouse cinema. I got the biggest kick out of seeing Ed Diamonds being interviewed.

  11. Arisa's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Pretty good, especially if you're just getting into the genre.

  12. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Gracias a este documental, divertido y superficial, descubrí que: 1-) Necesito ver Truck Turner y The Tormentors. 2-) Kim Morgan debe ser la movie geek más sexy del mundo. 3-) John Landis es un tipo genial y gracioso como pocos...su comentario sobre La pasión de Cristo, de Mel Gibson, me mató.

  13. Robert Karol's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Not very substantive, but it was enjoyable.

  14. Aimee's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    the film was more or less organized, i thought the dates were all over the place. But for what it was it was delightful to see the history of sleaze in film and its historical contexts

  15. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Entertaining doc takes a lighthearted look at the history of American grindhouse and exploitation cinema. Breezy and fun, the film makes the correct choice of not taking itself too seriously, while providing an informative overview.

  16. Jonathan's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    I'd recommend double billing this by watching 'Midnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream' While the title is very apt in it's perspective and intended subject matter: 'American' - I think that for the whole picture someone needs to direct a movie that incorporates the whole proliferation of films that migrated from Europe and Asia to the Grindhouse scene.

  17. gea*'s rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Entertaining and cute? documentary. Could have benefit from more interviewees...anything to take away from John Landis screen time.

  18. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Fun for cult movie fans, especially the interviews with a who’s who of legendary B-movie filmmakers, but it sometimes plays more like a breezy clip show than a real in-depth look into a fascinating side of film history. Worth watching, but I’d like to see a film that goes a bit deeper.

  19. Jon's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    My rating is really generous.

  20. Scout Tafoya's rating of the film American Grindhouse

    Some truly lovely and coveted interviews. Ted Mikels, Don Edmonds, Jack Hill and HG Lewis in one place? To quote El Santo, Sign My Ass Up!
