Machete Maidens Unleashed! (2010)

  
Format:  Machete Maidens Unleashed! DVD 
 
 
With real jungle locales, no pesky unions or safety rules, and a dictator's army on call, the Philippines became a hot spot for American and local low-budget action, horror, and exploitation filmmakers in the 1970s and '80s. Documentarian Mark Hartley ("Not Quite Hollywood") chronicles the stranger-than-fiction stories behind "Mad Doctor of Blood Island," "The Big Doll House," "For Your Height Only," and other wild movies, with outrageous footage and interviews with Colleen Camp, Roger Corman, Sid Haig, John Landis, and others. 88 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
