Not about Death Proof or Planet Terror, but about the films that they were inspired by. I've been wondering what some 'classics' of this style are.

Suggestions?

Cool thanks.

I wouldn't have thought of Vanishing Point as grindhouse style though. Love that film.

Haha, these look perfect:

shit. there's a lot more, but i'm too tired to think of them right now. i wouldn't consider "bring me the head of alfredo garcia" an exploitation film, though. a good way to explore these movies is to look at the different genres - blaxploitation, gore films, revenge films, sexploitation, nunsploitation, whatever.

I'm just looking for some films that make me laugh like Planet Terror did. I've seen a lot of these old films, but I just wanted to know of some more that will make me laugh. Trying to avoid complete shit, and just watch the ones that are very tongue in cheeck overe the top type stuff.

many of the ones i listed are funny/over the top, although most of them unintentionally.

these are definitely tongue in cheek:

Bloodsucking Freaks/The Incredible Torture Show
Switchblade Sisters
Death Race 2000
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
Street Trash
The Story of Ricky (too late to be considered grindhouse, but in the same vein)

Shit looks like they're cashing in on the whole Grindhouse thing. Icouldn't find that Thriller: A Cruel Picture anywhere, so looked on ebay. They want 15 (about $30) for it! Fuck that. If I can download them or buy em for a budget price then I will though. I was hoping for some 10 film boxset for a budget price.

thriller: a cruel picture is good, but just so you know, it's not funny and over the top. more depressing.

switchblade sisters is top five grindhouse material

What would your other four of the top five hilariously over the top fucked up fun Grandhouse pictures be then?

hard to say... but perhaps these:

bloodsucking freaks aka the incredible torture show
faster, pussycat! kill! kill!
street trash
don't go in the basement

honorable mention for "i drink your blood" and if "story of ricky" counts (it was made in 1991, after they shut down all the grindhouses), definitely story of ricky.

these are not at all the five most fucked up, but i'd consider them the most fun.

I've seen Faster Pussycat, but I'll check the others out. Thanks.
