I’m now fully convinced that most filmmakers trying to make exploitation films have never seen any in their life.
Take for example the upcoming Bitch Slap, billed as a throwback to exploitation films that’s supposedly inspired by Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill and Kung Fu Nun, but looks more like a low-rent Jerry Bruckheimer ripoff. The ever-present green screen and dramatic Michael Bay music doesn’t help things. But hey, rip off a few Tarantino lines and made an appropriate poster and you’ve got your very own grindhouse film!
Still, you could do a lot worse today than watch a lot of cleavage bouncing around and an Asian school girl ride another girl like a dog. Check out the trailer for Bitch Slap on the Apple site here.
