Feature: Hagsploitation/Grande Dame Guignol Classics



Since the release of Feud is fast approaching, we thought it was the perfect time to celebrate some Grande Dame Guignol/Hagsploitation/Old Broad in Peril classics. After all, Feud chronicles the making of What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? which famously pitted two 'over the hill' icons against each other in the world of Gothic melodrama - not to mention the behind the scenes backdrop of sixties Hollywood. 


After typing out a near two-thousand page essay on the Hagsploitation genre and Blogger deciding to wipe it and then autosave, you're not going to get our commentary on these various Hasploitation pieces - always type up in Word first, folks. Lesson learnt. However, we still do want to share these classics with you, so here's a list of the films with some nice images.
