** ''Film/AnAmericanCrime'' (2007 film, as there's ALSO another film with the same name!) is based on the case more directly, but goes out of its way to humanize the characters and go into detail about other things, leaving most of the tortures implied rather than shown. Yet, ironically, perhaps because it's directly based on the real life torture case and not simply being inspired by it, some reviewers accused ''this'' movie of being exploitative, even though it held back in the portrayals of violence.

That's part of the dividing line. Is the violence or sexuality contained within a movie gratuitous, meant largely for entertainment? Or is it used to enhance the plot or theme? Since ''The Girl Next Door'' is a fictionalized story based on a true crime involving a real girl who was systematically abused by her family, what is it? Is it exploitation because the story itself is fictionalized and involves made-up characters instead of literally retelling the story of the crime? And even if it did retell the story of actual crime, would it still be exploitation?

* ''The Girl Next Door'' (2007 film, as there are multiple films with that name) is about a teenage girl who is held captive and horribly mistreated by her adoptive family. It's based on a novel which in turn is inspired by a similar horrible real life case.

In TheSixties and TheSeventies, these films reached something of a Golden Age--perhaps in response to the "arty" mainstream films of the [[NewHollywood Hollywood Renaissance]]. This was the era of drive-in "grindhouse" double-features and limited releases touring around the country with crackly prints and at times missing reels. It was also the era of {{Blaxploitation}}.

* ''Film/ASerbianFilm (2010)'': Infamous Serbian film about a porn actor forced to committ all kinds of depraved sex scenes.
* ''[[Film/TheHumanCentipede The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence]]'' is a somewhat notorious example, delivering the gore that was missing from the original and upping the victim count from 3 to 12. Some of it's scenes were extreme enough for it be [[BannedInChina Banned In The UK]] and converted to black-and-white to allow for a wider release.

* ''Film/TheKiss'' (1896): This movie features a couple kissing and gives the audience exactly what it wants to see within the 18 seconds of its length. Rather tame according to today's norms, but at the time it was considered daring and caused moral outrage. Many people felt this picture was "disgusting" and "pornographic" and tried to have it banned.

* ''Film/FacesOfDeath'' (1978): Various supposedly "real" scenes of people and animals getting killed in gruesome ways.
