Independent Cinema: Boobs, Blood and Bondage

Some people believe that the death of the Production Code in 1968 and the major success of the exploitation-style Easy Rider the following year forged the trend of sex, drugs, and debauchery in cinema. Perhaps it is true, then again, perhaps it was only a matter of time given the natural order of supply and demand.

Long before the 1960’s rebel filmmakers have been pushing the boundaries of what is considered socially acceptable or completely forbidden. Since the advent of the Zoetrope, there has never been any shortage of sleazy opportunists eager to fleece the golden calf, exploiting viewers hungry for the eye candy sugar rush of a pair of exposed nipples.

CAUTION: The following video clip contains images that are not suitable for all audiences.

Viewer discretion is advised. Scene from vintage 1960's GRIND-HOUSE movie: "The Love Girls" (1966) aka "Sorority Girls"
