"Classical exploitation films were disreputable when they were originally released, and the mainstream industry went to great lengths to stamp them out. Histories of the motion picture medium passed them by. Their current position is as part of the “bad film” cult." --Bold! Daring! Shocking! True! (1999) by Eric Schaefer, page 9
