► BLAXPLOITATION HISTORY
Between 1971 and 1978 American movie theatres were swamped by cheap films featuring black heroes that in one way or the other fit the profile of exploitation. These were in general B films that revelled in sensational, scandalous or controversial themes (sex, violence, drugs), but also used black stars and racial equality to attract viewers. The action is fast, the dialogue filled with smooth one liners and the clothing was outrageous!
► PRIZE FOR THE BEST DRESSED
We have a special Blaxploitation prize package to give away for the best dressed. Think gangsters, hustlers, pimps, hitmen, vigilanties and secret agents.
