Slums_GIF_TheFindlays.gif
 
 
 

Slate's Season 4 director profile is all about a filmmaking couple, Michael and Roberta Findlay. The Findlays made some of the weirdest, sickest underground roughies and sex films throughout the 60s and 70s until Roberta graduated to super-violent horror movies of the 80s. They worked under a variety of different names with a variety of underground filmmakers and porn actors and actresses. And their story gets weirder by the minute. Today we present Michael and Roberta Findlay - Sexploitation’s First Couple.

Episode 40: Big Bugs

 
Slums_GIF_BigBugs.gif
 

Bugs are disgusting, horrible creatures. So naturally Hollywood started exploiting our fear and fascination with bugs in the early 50s. These early monster bug films, born of the atomic age, continued to blossom into a few new genres of Big Bug films over the next 50 years and they still turn up every now and then today. We hope this one gives you nightmares for weeks to come!
