Welcome to the Lobby!

Welcome to The Grindhouse Effect, a new site picking up where The Grindhouse Schoolhouse left off. It was time to start fresh and I hope you enjoy what I have to offer with this site!

The new website is more than just a fresh start, it’s a chance to expand my horizons. Oh, we’ll still be covering the sleazy, sexy films we all love and adore, don’t you worry. In addition we will branch out into related genres that sexploitation fans love as well: kaiju, cheesy superhero ripoffs, z-grade sci-fi and lots more. That’s why I’ve decided to call the site The Grindhouse Effect: the love of grindhouse films tends to ripple into related genres and I’m all about celebrating that!

All the reviews from the old site have moved on over and there is a ton more new content! Enjoy and please ask your Grindhouse buddies to check us out!

International Prostitution: Brigade Criminelle (1980)

Having grown tired of “the life,” a young prostitute flees her pimp (the charmingly-scary Gabriele Tinti as Tony Marcone), and finds deadly comeuppance at his hands. Marcone is quickly captured in Hong Kong, and police detective Philippe Dega (Jean-Louis Broust) is sent from Paris to collect him and bring him to justice.
