Karate-kickin' midgets! Paper-mâché monsters! Busty babes with blades! Filipino genre films of the '70s and '80s had it all. Boasting cheap labor, exotic scenery and non-existent health and safety regulations, the Philippines was a dreamland for exploitation filmmakers whose renegade productions were soon engulfing drive-in screens around the globe like a tidal schlock-wave! At last, the all-too-often overlooked world of drive-in filler from Manila gets the Mark Hartley treatment in Machete Maidens Unleashed!. This is the ultimate insiders' account of a faraway backlot where stunt men came cheap, plot was obsolete and the make-up guy was packin' heat. Machete Maidens Unleashed! features interviews with cult movie icons Roger Corman, Joe Dante, John Landis, Sid Haig, Eddie Romero and a large assembly of cast, crew and critics, each with a jaw-dropping story to tell about filmmaking with no budget, no scruples, no boundaries and - more often than not - no clothes. Strap yourselves in - and join us for a non-stop Filipino femme-fest, all the way from the jungles of the Pacific via the trash cans of the critics! --IMDb

Wait, what? There's no review here yet? While we do strive to be one of the better review sites on the internet, it's simply impossible for us to watch and review every film in existence. Personally, I probably own about a thousand movies that I haven't watched yet, and that's not even counting the stuff on my wishlist and in my Netflix queue. So, the fact that you're seeing this empty page means that it is a placeholder until somebody can review this movie. You can still rate it, comment on it, add it to your DVD collection, and any of the other cool stuff that we offer around here. You just can't read our review of it... yet.

Maybe you'd like to review it? We're always looking for new people to share their insights on the movies that they love (or love to hate). If so, you can contact me through my profile page here. Thanks!
