Skin Central Reviews Machete Maidens Unleashed!

MMU 2Director Mark Hartley made quite a skinpression here at Skin Central with his Ozploitation opus Not Quite Hollywood (2008), and we’re slappy to report that his newest movie, Machete Maidens Unleashed!, is a wildly entertaining documentary that follows the first criteria for a good exploitation flick: it lives up to the promise of its title.

(hereafter referred to as MMU) tells the largely unknown story of American exploitation filmmaking in the Philippines.
