Often shown in Grindhouses and Drive In theatres, exploitation films were low budget attempting to gain financial success by “exploiting” a current trend niche .

Blaxploitation is an example of this genre. The common theme was resistance from white oppression referred to as “The Man” and launched the careers of many actors, most notably, Pam Grier. Quentin Tarantino’s films have been heavily influenced by the genre.
