Some of the movies I do not want to see,but I like reading about them.

I've never heard of Cinema Sewer before, so I was curious about this compilation of the best of 12 out-of-print issues from this underground Canadian 'zine. I was pleasantly surprised. Cinema Sewer focuses mainly on horror, exploitation and "classic" 70's porn rarities, of which I also have a keen interest. In addition to the well written, humorous reviews, there's lots of spectacular artwork on display from Cinema Sewer's founder, Robin Bougie, as well as from his wife Rebecca Dart (a side note: I was happy to find that I'm not the only woman interested in this stuff).

An important word of warning: this book is for ADULTS ONLY! Some of the very detailed drawings are EXTREMELY graphic, and the language used is pretty graphic too. If you have a sensitive disposition, and are easily offended, DON'T by this book. However, if your into old 70's porn rarities, exploitation and horror films, and enjoy writing that will make you laugh and art that'll make you gasp, you owe it to yourself to check this book out. Have fun!

I knew nothing of Robin Bougie and Cinema Sewer before I purchased this book. I was hoping for a concise history of awful and tasteless movies and was a little disappointed at first glace because this is a handwritten comic of sorts. Most of the text is quite hard to read, as it is so small, and I could feel a headache coming on quite quickly, so I place the book by the toilet and put this buy down to impulsiveness.

That said, I started to read this seedy work as I sat on the loo and found myself laughing out load at the sarcasm, wit and pointed musings of its author. It is rare that an author makes me laugh out load and if I have to name a few on my short list they would be Douglas Adams, Spike Milligan and some of Woody Allan's short essays. Robin Bougie definitely has a talent for writing his reviews and observations in a very amusing style.

I am now halfway through this informative rant and felt compelled to write a review because I am enjoying this book so much. I am almost happy that film stills do not accompany these reviews as Robin Bougie obviously has a stronger tolerance to on-screen obscenities than I could ever have. I could not watch most of the films reviewed without reaching for a sick-bowl and being permanently mentally scarred by the experience. So I am glad someone has done this for me and I am spared having to watch any of these twisted works.

"25 Cinematic Cliches I Never Wanna See Again" is a wonderful list (this idea should be turned into a book in its own right).

One coincidence that made this book worthy of purchase is that when I was young and impressionable a friend showed me a horrendous hardcore porn movie with a footless whore.

A friend recommended this book, so I thought I'd give it a look. I intended to take it to work with me to have something to read during slow periods. Well, as soon as I got a look at it, I realized it was not a workplace-friendly book, given the rather explicit illustrations. I also thought it would be a printed book, and was surprised at the comic-book style format. That said, it is an interesting book, a little heavy on the porn as opposed to the cult/horror for my taste, but with some good observations about the film and video rental industries, as well as plenty of no-holds-barred editorial matter. In these days of "political correctness," it is refreshing to read someone who isn't afraid to express his opinions about very politically *incorrect* movies without apology. If you can find a copy at a decent price, it's not a bad addition to your cult/guilty pleasures bookshelf.

This is a strange one.

It's obvious quite quickly that Cinema Sewer is not going to be a book for everyone. In fact, it's probably going to be a book for only a certain crowd, those who like either porn movies or really cheesy exploitation (particularly horror) films. I fit into that latter group.

A compilation of articles from the magazine of the same name, Cinema Sewer contains a lot of information about porn films, probably more than most people would ever want to know. These are not simply films of guy-and-girl (or guy-and-guy or girl-and-girl) sex: the reader gets reviews of films that deal with all sorts of sadism, masochism and some rather scatological things too. Much of which is illustrated by artist (and principal writer and editor) Robin Bougie (and lots of photos too, though generally not reproduced well).

It ain't all porn, however. There are also reviews of other exploitation films, such as the various "Mondo" and "Faces of Death" movies and lots of horror films too, often low-budget movies from the 1960s and 1970s, when exploitation/grindhouse films were at their peak. Beyond reviews, we get some biographies, especially of porn actresses, which make it readily apparent that the life of such actresses are rather sordid. There are also articles about various related material such as a history of the anti-porn movement and whether snuff films exist.

I'm not much of a pornography fan, and I think even many who are might be repelled by some of the material in this book. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the book overall. Bougie and company have an obvious enthusiasm for this material, an appreciation for the trashy films that carries over to the reader. It will expose the daring reader to some unexplored areas of the cinema world (in particular, the cinema sewer).
