When the Australian New Wave was well underway in the early 70’s, a more niche wave of Australian cinema was also evolving… Ozploitation! The term was coined by noted exploitation fan Quentin Tarantino and became a staple of Australian cinema. As we learned while studying Roger Corman’s exploitation films, these films dive into specific genres, usually horror, sci-fi, or action, and exploit a certain niche group, usually the counter-culture. Ozploitation dove into all these genres, specifically horror, but gave them all a unique twist since they all dealt with exploiting certain norms of Australian culture. These films specialized in massive car chases, exaggerated violence, and blatant nudity all set to the beautiful backdrop of Australia in the 70s and 80s! Not only do they make up some of the most entertaining movies in cinema, but they also provide viewers with insight and knowledge into a culture that may be foreign to us.
