Editorial Reviews

GRINDHOUSE is an American term for a theater that mainly showed exploitation films. Grindhouses were known for non-stop, triple-bill programs of B movies, usually consisting of a double feature where two films were shown back to back. Many of these inner-city theaters formerly featured burlesque shows which featured "bump and grind" dancing, leading to the term "grind-house." Beginning in the late 1960s and especially during the 1970s, the subject matter of exploitation films shown in these theaters often included explicit sex, violence, bizarre or perverse plot points, and other taboo content - biker films, horror films, martial arts films etc. By the 1980s, home video threatened to render Grindhouses obsolete. By the end of the decade, these theaters had vanished from Los Angeles's Broadway and Hollywood Boulevard, New York City's Times Square, San Francisco's Market Street and pretty much everywhere else in the United States. To salute this film revolution of a bygone era, BCI has developed a line of DVD double features that recreate the ephemeral experience of the Grindhouse theaters with a whole new, interactive DVD experience. Featuring back-to-back film presentations, complete with movie trailers, commercials and an intermission, you can now enjoy the exploitative nature of exclusively licensed, cult films in the comfort of your own home with "WELCOME TO THE GRINDHOUSE". Chain Gang Women - Chained like animals...treated like trash! A shocking brutal story of two convicts, whose escape starts a trail of violence, rape and murder and whose women will forever feel the touch of their unleashed primative cravings. Starring Michael Stearns, Barbara Mills and Linda York R - 85 minutes - 1971 The Hellcats - Leather on the outside....all woman on the inside! Viciousness, brutality, excitement, honesty and love are all a part of this fast-paced, action-packed film about female motorcycle gangs...the first of its kind. Starring Ross Hagen, Dee Duffy and Sonny West R - 90 minutes - 1967 - Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1)
