What is the best sleaze/exploitation/slasher DVD in your opinion?

I have about $20 in amazon credit left from doing mturk and I need an idea for my last DVD to spend it on.

Give me some of your ideas for a good sleaze/exploitation/slasher DVD. If it's a good DVD and it isn't all three of those topics, that's fine, just get me some ideas.

Well, speaking of exploitation...I think that there is no way you could go wrong with Tinto Brass' limited double set reease of Salon Kitty (from Blue Underground). Considering the fact that the disc will soon be OOP this is a solid buy in my book.

Forza Italia!!

I Spit On Your Grave: Milineum Edition.

Definately falls into all three of your qualifications and "The Milineum Edition" is (was ) the Criterion of horror.

Class of Nuke'em High gets my vote.

Of course any of the Nazi erotica genre will do also. Those are so horrible and sleazy!

Also look into Reform School Girls

I have a fond admiration for Silent Night Deadly Night, I still remember in 1984 seeing the tv commercial with Santa running around killing people. What a flick!

I'm with Punk here. You get much gore for your money with Anchor Bay's wonderful treatment of Silent Night, Deadly Night Parts I and II. This double feature can be had for less than $20.00 and fits the bill for what you descrubed. In the event you can live without widescreen, and already have this wonderfully transferred masterpiece, you might want to consider another double feature: Sorority House Massacre I and II. While not quite as stylish, there is considerably more gratuitious nudity and a few more grisly scenes. Again, it can be had for less than $20.00.

While somewhat obscure, and not quite as good as the above, my nomination for the most representative slasher of this era would be The Initiation. Again, it would be in your price range and would be what you described.

Good luck.

Or, you could venture into the wonderful world of 70's Japanese exploitation flicks and pick one of:

Zero Woman Red Handcuffs
Lady Snowblood
Female Convict Scorpion: Jailhouse 41
School of the Holy Beast
Sex & Fury
Female Yakuza Tale: Inquisition and Torture

It's all good fun, really.

I actually have, or getting, most of these.

Does anyone recommend The Pinky Violence Collection? I'd have to drop some cash to get this but if it's worth it...

The new Cannibal Holocaust dvd is awesome, and it's only limited to 11,000. Exploitation at its grizliest.

You want sleaze, exploitation and horror? Go directly to the Ilsa collection from Anchor Bay. For credible "exploitation" meaning there's actually something going on behind all that gore, check out Men Behind the Sun or The Untold Story. I also just checked out "Cut & Run", a lesser known film from Cannibal Holocaust director Ruggero Deodato, which can be had fairly cheap from Anchor Bay.

The Sleepaway Camp trilogy is well worth the investment. I'd tell you about it, but really that would be spoiling the fun. This is one film you want to see, knowing as little as possible about. Here are some other great Slashers and or Horror movies.

Just Before Dawn
High Tension
Re Animator
Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3)
Dog Soldiers
Silent Night Deadly Night
The Hills Have Eyes
Session 9
Night Of The Demons
Funny Games

If you enjoyed the intensity of High Tension, I suggest buying the film "Funny Games". One of the most brutal films ever made, though nowhere near as violent.
