Newton Talks #32 Namsploitation with Neil Jackson

Episode 42,   Mar 16, 11:16 AM

In this episode, I talk to Neil Jackson, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lincoln about his upcoming book, Combat Shocks: Exploitation Cinema and the Vietnam War (Bloomsbury, Forthcoming), which deals with exploitation films about the Vietnam war from the mid 1960s up until the late 1980s. We talk about the conventions and iconography of the cycle, as well as individual films such as Forced Entry (Shaun Costello, 1973), The Exterminator (James Glickenhaus, 1980) and The Last Hunter (Antonio Margheriti 1980). Contains adult themes.
