Exploitation Extober Special: Ozploitation

 The skies they were ashen and sober;
The leaves they were withering and sere-
It was night in the lonesome October

Halloween is almost here and people are making up their ghost stories, trying to find that one awesome costume on the attic and finish the decorations for their houses. Others are prepping their knives, chainsaws,guns and will try to find that perfect murder victim. Be aware people, or pray that Dexter has already killed your murderer. 

What in the name of Kubrick is going on with this site? Do not worry, it's Exploitation Extober Time! A small summary:

Exploitation Extober is an event on which we celebrate the good and mostly terrible Exploitation B-movies! It normally starts on 10 october and ends on Halloween, but I have to shorten it because of personal reasons. I'll try to make it up the last three days of October, so expect more posts on those days. 

When I started this blog, I really had no clue what to do with it. I've chosen the name Movie Monstrosity because it reminds me of those terrible exploitation movies made in the 20th century. A few days later, I've invented the Exploitation Extober Event and it was a great succes!( for a starting blog) 

It's the second time we are celebrating this remarkable event! Last year was truly amazing. We went very far and touched several subgenres.

There is  some kind of Exploitation Revival going on now. ( example:Rubber and Machete) Will we see more of those? Or do you think it's just a blimp?

Let's start the Exploitation Extober Event with a recap of Year One!

Post 1: The first post had the theme: Blaxploitation and Nunsploitation
Two crazy and quite funny exploitation genres!

Post 2: Blackula, Dr. Black and Mr.Hyde, Killer Nun and Nun Of That!
Those titles are amazing! Really, you can win awards with them!

Post 3: Black Dynamite, Black Caesar and Boss Nigger We ended the Blaxploitation week with three great trailers.

Nazi Exploitation is quite a strange genre!

Spaghettiwesterns is my favourite exploitation genre. In this post we see some Blues Brothers, Two Lane Blacktop and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
A special into a special. Inception much? Anyway, This post has some great reviews on several spaghetti westerns. It's a collection of the must-see spaghetti westerns. So get them in your local store and do a Swestern Marathon!

A collection of all the awesome horror movies. You have to see them before Halloween!

The first genre will be Ozploitation and we will be looking for the horrorozploitation. Just to get in the mood for Halloween! But what is Ozploitation? 

 Ozploitation refers to the Australian exploitation films that were produced during a fruitful period in the 1970s and 1980s. Ozploitation films covered a range of genres.


The Story: In a rest home for elderly people, a daughter reads her mother's diary. Soon events that are mentioned in the mother's diary begin to happen to the daughter.
The AwesomenessThe movie was lost and forgotten until Quentin Tarantino said it was one of his favourite aussie films.

The Story: A comatose hospital patient harasses and kills though his powers of telekinesis to claim his private nurse as his own.
The Awesomeness:  Come on. The guy is in a bed just staring and kills everybody around him!


The Story: A strange race of human-like marsupials appear suddenly in Australia, and a sociologist who studies these creatures falls in love with a female one. Is this a dangerous combination?
The Awesomeness: I've told you about these terrible B-movies, right? Well, this is one of them. It's so damn bad in every way.... But hey, go watch The Howling. The original is an okay film.

Bonus Clip: Robot Monster
Has nothing to do with Ozploitation but this one was way to ridiculous to just let go.  Enjoy this terrible trailer for a terrible B-movie!
