Crazy 4 Cult is a cult movie art collection, featuring art from Gallery 1988, a Los Angeles art gallery opened in 2004 that focuses on pop-culture themed artwork.

It's a 176-page hardcover published by Titan Books.

The movies included are limited to just cult movies, depending on how you define cult. Some of them are Clerks, The Big Lebowski, Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Darko, The Shining, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory etc. Some titles are really obscure.

The art is essentially fan art, a collection a paintings and a few handmade figures. Some ideas are nice, some average. There's a variety of interesting style but overall, there's a strong lowbrow art feel to the book. Can't say that it's the style of art I like.

This book reminds me of Star Wars Art: Visions which is also sort of a cult movie book, but their selection is more refined, and quality is higher. By the way, there's no Star Wars art in Crazy 4 Cult except for some characters that appear as only as cameo.

This book is probably a fan service. I think you need to be a strong cult movie fan (who also likes art) to appreciate.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I absolutely love this book. There's paintings that depict JAWS, Clerks, Edward Scissorhands, Evil Dead, Willy Wonka, Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski and many more cult classics in ways I never imagined. Some of my favorite pictures are a Willy Wonka version of "Appetite for Destruction" some eerie Donnie Darko paintings, and a collage of cult favorites spread over the entire page. You won't be disappointed with this purchase, I find myself glancing over the glossy images several times a week and being wowed at the detail. Pick this up for a nice coffee table book that film and art fans alike will enjoy.

I've bought a lot of art books over the years. I've had this one for a year now and it hasn't been put on the shelf once. People are just drawn to it. The artwork is amazing. The topics interesting. I could never afford the artworks inside, so this is the next best thing. Great for pop culture lovers and art love alike.

I purchased this book when I went to the opening night of Crazy4Cult's latest installment at Gallery 1988. I heard that the book was going to be released that night and had told myself that no matter what - I would not pay more than $80 for it - and even then, it had better be great. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed!

When I finally got my hands on one, after waiting in an extremely chaotic line that kept being pushed to and fro by gallery visitors volleying for a better viewing spot of the artwork on the walls, I was jazzed to find out the book was only $35 - WAAAAAAY less than any print sold at Gallery 1988!

The book is printed on high-quality paper and the colors just pop! Each piece is showcased and resized so that every detail can be oo'ed and ah'ed over. I was so happy with the book and finally owning the pieces I could never afford to buy at the gallery, that I proudly showed off the book to everyone that dropped by my apartment that night. Even though most of my friends are too young to know most of the movie references, the artwork contained in this book's pages kept them entertained and led to a million questions about this movie or that.

I highly recommend buying this book to anyone who's loves cult movies and loves art. You won't regret it.

PS: Keep an eye out for a Fight Club inspired Calvin & Hobbes piece. It's my favorite :)

I started listening to Jensen On the smodcast network when he sat in on plus one. He was talkin about the gallery 88 stuff snd it sounded pretty awesome. Then jensen got his own show" get up on this" which is worth a listen as its a great show to turn you on to some cool stuff. Again, the book got brought up and I thought this would be a pretty cool thing to have around. So I went ahead and ordered it and lo and behold, put it out on the coffee table when we had a little get together and everyone went GAGA over it. Not only is the artwork awesome it helps to remind you of all the awesome movies from childhood. Theres a few I actually wouldnt mind getting the full print of. MY favorite is the 8-bit world one, where it has tons of characters from all the tv etc from the time but it looks like its right out of a nintendo game. A great purchase that I'm sure you will pick up over and over again.

Also check out"Just cant get enough" jensens other book which is all about 80's toys

Full of amazing art...a real treasure trove for nerds. We've gone on to buy prints of some of the art. The physical quality of the book was nice too (sturdy cover, nice paper weight). I stays out on our coffee table, for everyone to enjoy.

Beautiful book, it came totally pristine. I bought this for my boyfriend who is a huge movie buff and who already has the large Twin Peaks poster after going to the exhibit at Gallery 1988. He's gonna love it.

CRAZY4CULT is a collection of movie art from Gallery 1988, a Los Angeles art gallery that focuses on pop-cultured themed art. The prints in this book are printed on a high-caliber, glossy stock. The works portrayed in the book include, among others, STAR WARS, WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, ALIENS, PULP FICTION, THE SHINING, FARGO, E.T., TWIN PEAKS, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, DONNIE DARKO, BACK TO THE FUTURE, THE WIZARD OF OZ, GHOSTBUSTERS, and JAWS. Most of the works featured are paintings and sketches, but there are some pieces of sculpture, too. My favorite work in the book is "The Parking Ticket": a painting of an astronaut and R2-D2. Overall, this book has a somewhat limited appeal because its core audience is someone who is an avid fan of pop culture as well as a person who has a strong sense of art appreciation.
