Live Poll: Best Ozploitation Movie

An 'Ozploitation' film is defined as any genre film that's made in the land down under, Australia! These types of films peaked in the 70s and 80s but declined in the beginning of the 90s. They then had a little resurgence, particularly when Wolf Creek became a hit, and they still get made today albeit in lesser numbers. So I thought I would make this list as a tribute to the Australian film industry. Which one is your favourite?

I suggested this 4+ years ago but it didn't get any traction. Perhaps you'll have better luck.

My list, if you want to compare:

Not sure if all the titles you chose actually fall into the category of Ozploitation...but I'm probably wrong. :)

Ozploitation means, Australia as a country or a continent?

I suggested taking Fury Road off more for financial reasons. The budget was probably as much as all the others combined. From the Wiki entry: Ozploitation films are exploitation films – a category of low-budget horrorcomedy, and action films.

And yet, it is on their list as well so...

If comedy is part of Ozploitation, why didn't Crocodile Dundee make the list?

Not the best, but my favorite is Turkey Shoot. I can't believe I watched it as a kid with my parents. We didn't know what it was before we put the cassette on.

I still don't know what it is after seeing it more than once.
