Sleazoid Express: A Mind-
Twisting Tour Through the
of Times Square
by Bill Landis
In a bygone era, when Times Square was crammed with
porn shops, gun stores, and drug pushers, disenfranchised moviegoers
flocked to the grindhouses along 42nd Street. If the gore epics,
women-in-prison films, and shockumentaries showcased within their
mildewed walls didn't live up to their outrageous billing, the
audience shouted, threw food, and even vandalized the theaters. For
dedicated lovers of extreme cinema, buying a movie ticket on the Deuce
meant putting your life on the line.
Authors Bill Landis and Michelle Clifford came to
know those grindhouses better than anyone else, and although the
theaters were gone by the mid-1980s, the films remained. In Sleazoid
Express, Landis and Clifford reproduce what no home video can --
the experience of watching an exploitation film in its original
fight-for-your-life Deuce setting. Both a travelogue of the infamous
grindhouses of yore and a comprehensive overview of the sleaze canon,
Sleazoid Express offers detailed reviews of landmark exploitation
classics and paints intimate portraits of directors whose notorious
creations played the back end of triple bills for years on end. With
wit, intelligence, and an unflinching eye, Landis and Clifford offer
the definitive document of cinema's most intense and shocking moments
as they came to life at a legendary place.
