This review is from: Cinema Sewer: The Adults Only Guide to History's Sickest and Sexiest Movies! (Paperback)
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 happily agree with all you've said here. I actually had the pleasant experience of chatting with Robin Bougie today while he signed my copy of volume two- and we watched the charmingly dreadful 'Dogway Melodies' dvd. There's nothing quite like seeing canines up on their hind legs performing 'Singing In The Rain' and drinking themselves into doggy heaven...
