Hey folks,

So it’s a new month which means its time for a new Cult Chops theme and in November the car is the star as we look at “Carsploitation” movies. Simply put if the car is the main focus of the film, being shot with an over fetishist like eye or it features a large amount of cars being smashed you have a movie from this genre. A mainstay of 70’s and 80’s American and Australian cinema, it faded away in the 90’s before getting a slight revival in the 00’s

Examples include

  • Vanishing Point
  • The Blues Brothers
  • The Mad Max Saga
  • The Fast and Furious Saga
  • Two-Lane Blacktop
  • The Cars That Ate Paris
  • Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry
  • Gone In 60 Seconds
  • Race With the Devil
  • Cannonball Run 1 & 2
  • Death Proof
  • Smokey and the Bandit Trilogy
  • The Herbie Saga
  • Death Race 2000 / Death Race Trilogy
  • The Hitcher


How to get involved

All you have to do is submit any of the following
  • Reviews
  • Articles
  • Essays
  • Podcast episodes
Really anything relating to the theme of the month can be submitted either via e-mail – or on the LAMB forums with all submissions featured in a round at up at the end of each month. The hope being that LAMB’s already writing about these genres will get alittle more exposure while perhaps tempting others to wander away from the path of mainstream cinema and maybe check out some films they might not have otherwise watched.
Submission Deadline: 7th December
Round up to be posted: 8th December
