Here s where you ll find the best trashy movies An essential purchase for fans of Japanese monster movies and homicidal baby flicks Oddly enough, my favorite movie, It s a Wonderful Life is included I never thought of Jimmy Stewart as being on the fringe. Here Is A Guide For Alternative Film Fans, Cult Flick Devotees, Connoisseurs Of Trash And Every Movie Buff With A Twisted Sense Of Humour This Book Profiles Really Good Bad Movies, Really Bad Bad Movies And Really Good Movies That Were Largely Overlooked I browsed through this one night to see if I was familar with some of the movies I had seen some growing up when the 80 s made really bad midnight movies There were some I didn t think belonged in there at all and some I thought would be in there but were not Short plot retellings, listing of cast, awards, year, format are all given as well as Videohound s score. Strangely this book feels dated, however, if you re looking for a guide to cult films before 1995, there is no better guide even if the internet makes this book essentially unnecessary. Invaluable, can t count the number of times it saved my bacon When I m running late for a deadline and have no idea what film to write about I often just flip through the book and then put my finger down at random. I never knew so many weird and twisted movies existed There are several I plan to see. Guide to all cinema perverse and horrid. Snarky but lightweight and bland, with an off putting, dismissive mainstream sensibility Far too many staggering errors and omissions to be taken as authoritative 300 pages of indexes but no room for William Castle s complete oeuvre This is a problem with all of the Videohound series For cinema dilettantes only. I have searched but never found the perfect movie guide book It seems that books like this are dying off now that we have online databases and blog spots that do the job for free This series is accessible and I agree with the reviews much often than I do with Leonard Maltin I used to refer to this one when looking for DVDs to buy If only Robin Bougie would write one of these It would be the greatest movie review book ever.
