The roots of European exploitation culture can easily be traced from the 18th and 19th centuries' darker strains of romanticism and the gothic novel to the late 19th century decadent movement. In the 20th century European exploitation culture found its outlet primarily in exploitation movies and in adult comic books.[Dec 2006]
