An exploitation film is a film which attempts to succeed financially by exploiting current trends, niche genres, or lurid content. They may feature suggestive or explicit sex, sensational violence, drug use, nudity, freaks, gore, the bizarre, destruction, rebellion, and mayhem. Exploitation films of the 1950s to 1970s that featured spanking, whipping, bondage, abduction, and various forms of abuse, in a way laid the groundwork for today's spanking video, BDSM and fetish film industries.
Exploitation films are generally low-quality "B-movies" produced on a small budget. Even so, they sometimes attract critical attention and cult followings.
Some of the many subgenres of exploitation films include:
- Nazisploitation films (Nazi exploitation)
- Nunsploitation films (nun exploitation)
- Sexploitation films, which come in two main categories:
- Slasher films
- Women in Prison films
