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 would have liked to know which movies were in the book. Here are some of the movies/ characters in the book (not all): "fight club," "evil dead," anything with jay & silent bob, "breakfast club," "edward scissorhands," "jaws," pee wee herman, "iron giant," "the professional," "a clockwork orange," "willy wonka & the chocalate factory," "texas chainsaw massacre," "rocky horror picture show," "E.T.," "the big lebowski," "they live," "flash gordan," "freaks," old dracula films, "wizard of oz," "little shop of horrors," "night of the living dead," "godzilla (old one)," "star wars," "the shining," the exorcist," "monty pythin & the holy grail," "friday the 13th," "fast times at ridgemont high," "erasurehead," "goonies," "blue velvet," "the warriors," "neverending story," "back to the future," "princess bride," ghost busters," "beetlejuice," "point break," tarantino films, "shaun of the dead," "firefly" & "serenity," "donny darko," and a few works squeezing in characters from just about every cult film.
expect to see some epic mashups of some films, such as "breakfast fight club."
