Title: Student Bodies Released: 1981 Director: Mickey Rose, Michael Ritchie Rating: R I recently purchased Student Bodies, and had low expectations. I assumed my childhood self found it much funnier than I would at present. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the film held up over the years, and how funny it still was.
Title: The Cut-Throats Released: 1969 Director: John Hayes Rating: X (By 1969 standards) The Cut-Throats is an exploitation film for sure. It’s not quite an action movie, not quite nazisploitation. I suppose you could generalize, and call it sexploitation, but even then, it seems a stretch. (Potential spoilers ahead!)

(Potential spoilers ahead!)
Title: Sugar Hill Released: 1974 Director: Paul Maslansky Rating: PG Sugar Hill manages to cross many genres successfully. This polyester clad film blurs the lines between zombie horror, revenge and blaxploitation with a few comical moments to boot. (Potential spoilers ahead!)
