Anti-Film School and The Droid You’re Looking For Go to 42nd Street

42nd Street

Hey readers,

A few weeks back, John LaRue of The Droid You’re Looking For asked me if I was interested in writing a gritty piece for his site on the grindhouses that ruled 42nd Street from the 1960s to the mid 1980s. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to help John out and after a few weeks of brainstorming, tweaking, and watching old exploitation movies, that article was completed and sent off to John. He added an introduction and a snazzy infograph to make my list of “exploitation essentials” a bit more pleasing to the eye and we were off to the wildest time in movie history. If you wish to read the article, click here, and do make sure you check out the rest of John’s site. It truly is one of the most unique, funny, and downright creative film websites you will see. On with the show!

  1. Thanks so much for writing that piece, Steve. It was excellent.

    The 42nd Street scene is such a cool, lesser-known part of movie history.

    • It was no problem at all. It really seemed like an awesome scene. It was really hard to put together a list of the essential exploitation films. I keep pulling some off the list and adding some. I sort of wish I would have added The Beyond to the list. That one is pretty crazy.
