Format: Paperback
First came Re-Search's "Incredibly Strange Films". Then came this. It's an excellent book in it's own right, with interviews and overviews of cult movie directors. And it DOES continue where the first book left off, updating and presenting newer directors as well. A must-have for all genre movie enthusiasts!!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By "carl_j_johansson" on October 17, 2000
Format: Paperback
A book with interviews with american exploitation directors who worked during the 70's, 80's and 90's like Jim Wynorski, Fred Olen Ray, Paul Bartel, Sean Cunningham, Sam Raimi and Wes Craven. This book was written before the Scream trilogy so Craven isn't treated with that much respect, they claim that Sean Cunningham (Friday the 13th) have been more successful! Interesting look into the lowbudget direct-to-video business in the 80's. Some directors don't exactly seems to be proud over their work. Guess it must be hard for fans of a movie to hear that the director just did it for the money and that he himself unliked the film. I'm not exactly the biggest fan of these directors and their films so I guess those who are will find this book much better than me. But it's informative and the information about their work comes directly from the filmmakers themselves so I'll guess this book is the best source you can get on the subject.
