It Came from the Drive-In Mass Market Paperback – February 1, 1996
Not since "Mystery Science Theater 3000" have the silly delights of '50s and '60s B movies been celebrated with as much affection and wry wit as they are in this assortment of 18 genre spoofs that range from horror to sci-fi to teen biker to western. Check out these titles: "The Yellers of Their Eyes," "The Thing from Lover's Lane," "The Blood on Satan's Harley," "I Was a Teenage Boycrazy Blob." I especially appreciate how surreal most of the stories are: the authors have taken their memories of those movies experienced through squawky outdoor speakers and fogged windshields, and warped them into a new dimension where wicked satire creates monsters even funnier than the originals. Two of these tales were nominated for a 1997 Bram Stoker Award--Robert Devereaux's "The Slobbering Tongue That Ate the Frightfully Huge Woman" and the late Karl Edward Wagner's "Plan 10 from Inner Space."
