A toast to the American exploitation film, an admittedly lowbrow art form with undeniably high entertainment value—and a staple of so-called grind house cinema. Highlights include clips from long-forgotten gems, plus interviews with grind house aficionados Joe Dante, Jack Hill, John Landis, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Fred Williamson and more.
