trash film

  refers to second-run, low-budget films that are deliberately over-the-top, infantile, amateurish, sometimes excessively gory or raunchy which are intended to shock, disgust, and repel mainstream audiences, and appeal to non-traditional audiences. Sometimes described as a sub-category of exploitation and cult films, or called a 'turkey' film. Compare with sexploitation, B-films, and Z-films.
  Examples: Films distributed and produced by Troma Studios, the splatter films of Herschell Gordon Lewis, Paul Morrissey's Trash (1970), John Waters' Pink Flamingos (1972) and Female Trouble (1974), William Sach's The Incredible Melting Man (1977), Meir Zarchi's Day of the Woman (aka I Spit on Your Grave (1978)).
