Profoundly Disturbing: Shocking Movies that Changed History!
From the murky depths can come the most extraordinary things. . . . Profoundly Disturbing examines the underground cult movies that have--unexpectedly and unintentionally-- revolutionized the way that all movies would be made. Called "exploitation films" because they often exploit our most primal fears and desires, these overlooked movies pioneered new cinematographic techniques, subversive narrative structuring, and guerrilla marketing strategies that would eventually trickle up into mainstream cinema. In this book Joe Bob Briggs uncovers the most seminal cult movies of the twentieth century and reveals the fascinating untold stories behind their making.

Review: Profoundly Disturbing: The Shocking Movies that Changed HistoryUser Review - Darcy - Goodreads
More Joe Bloom than Joe Bob (although he is there) in a thoughtful analysis of films that shook people up at the time of release. Primary sources are used as much as possible, punctuated with fine insights. Fantastic bibliography. Good stuff, if you know what I mean (and I think you do). Read full review
