Ozploitation films are Australian exploitation films that were produced during the 1970s and 1980s. They covered a variety of genres, like sexploitation, biker films, horror films and even some Kung.
Here’s a look at some of the best known ozploitation films:
Mad Max (1979): The film’s lead role is played by the then unknown Mel Gibson. Set in the future, Mad Max tells the story of a destroyed society, murder and vengeance.
Alvin Purple (1973): A sex-filled comedy about the misadventures of the naïve Alvin Purple whom women find irresistible. He must try to resist all of the many women who want him. Heis so worn-out he seeks psychiatric help to solve his problems. His psychiatrist is a woman (of course) and he falls in love with her since she’s the first woman not to throw herself at him.
Long Weekend (1978): The story follows couple Peter and Marcia, who, along with their dog, go for a weekend camping trip. The pair show inconceivable disrespect for nature, such as polluting, killing an innocent dugong, throwing lit cigarette butts in dry bush, spraying insecticide and more. As tensions between the couple builds, nature is not pleased with their environmental misconduct and starts to strike back.
