Machete Maidens Unleashed

Night of the Cobra Woman (1972, USA / Philippines)

WHAT director Mark Hartley did for unloved Australian exploitation films of the 1970s in Not Quite Hollywood he will now do for Filipino cinema. Machete Maidens Unleashed is a feature documentary that explores fi lmmaking in the Philippines during the Marcos era, when miniature James Bonds, karatekicking soul sisters, snake-loving babes, anorexic Rambos and gun-toting nuns were the rage. from The Age

I'm also a great fan of b-movie and comic heroines.
But I didn't know this film. Thanks for the post.
