Tough Enough (1983)

I can’t think of a better way to start a redneck comedy tough guy competition movie than with a barroom setting and eight finalists in the nightly wet T-Shirt contest. Now […]

Daughters of Satan (1972)

Does the appearance of Pam Grier make this women in prison flick blaxploitation? Perhaps. But it squarely falls into the exploitation market under the guise of producer John Ashley and […]

Hammer (1972)

Fred “The Hammer” Williamson stars here as who else…..B.J. Hammer. Using the tried and true backdrop of boxing, Fred stars as a fighter on his way to the title while […]
