Exploitation Cinema within the Limits of the Internet / Logos. 2014. № 6 (102). P. 123-134
annotation:  Keywords: exploitation cinema, trash, Russian segment of the Internet, videoboom. Exploitation movies were generated by Western popular culture under the influence of a number of factors: ideological, social, economic, esthetic considerations. Over time, these marginal branches of cinema have turned into a well-performing industry, as well as an object of academic study and a cult. The wave of “exploitation” approached the Russian audience in the second half of the 1980s and were part of the “videoboom.” The progress of the internet has opened up access to foreign websites dedicated to genre cinema, and later to file-sharing platforms. Resources related to the exploitation appeared in the Russian segment of the internet. The information vacuum was filled by enthusiasts who created websites and thematic forums, and audience demand was satisfied by video bootleggers with their online shops.
