Exploitation month continues on Shock Waves, as hosts Rob Galluzzo, Ryan Turek, Rebekah McKendry and Elric Kane are joined by special guest BJ Colangelo! But first, the latest horrors! Fresh from his trip to New York City, Elric reports back on HERE ALONE, Mario Bava's PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES, THE UNTAMED & the HBO anthology series ROOM 104. Bekah checked out THE WRAITH, PROM NIGHT 2 and THE WORST WITCH. Ryan tells us about Arrow Video's recent release MADHOUSE. Rob watched Code Red's new Blu-Ray of ONE DARK NIGHT, John Carpenter's GHOSTS OF MARS and Scream Factory's DEMENTED. Then we talk about the launch of BJ's blog "DAY OF THE WOMAN" and it opens up the discussion to the controversial sub-genre of "rape/revenge" movies. I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE is the most notorious and infamous of the bunch. But what about the films that came before it? Or in it's wake? LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, MS. 45, THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE, DEATH WISH 2, SAVAGE STREETS, AMERICAN MARY. At what point do these films go too far making them exploitation? And what is it about these certain titles that we find entertaining, or in some cases therapeutic? We delve into this difficult topic full on! Kick back, listen and join the conversation!
