Trashy drive-in style movies: a guilty pleasure?

    Low-budget, campy movies are often my favorite kind to watch when I'm not in the mood for something of great intellect and depth. The trashy, exploitative type movies from the 70's are such a nostalgic, goofy trip sometimes. I do love a great film full of rich character and depth, but sometimes there is nothing like a Russ Meyer or Jess Franco movie. Or those old cheesy Hong Kong Kung Fu movies about the collapse of the Ming Dynasty where the sound effects and varying film speeds totally overwhelm the senses. Anyone have a favorite from any of those subgenres that often get relegated to the 'drive-in' or 'grindhouse' label?
