I bought this book years ago when I got into "off the beaten path" films, well before online rentals. When video stores were going out of business, I looked for movies listed in this book to buy cheap on VHS. It's well organized and informative. It contains many well-known films (like "Pulp Fiction" and Todd Solondz films) as well as low budget fare (the majority) If you are new to the realm of strange and offbeat movies, this is a great place to get ideas for a night of "interesting" viewing. It's easy to thumb through and the reviews are concise and entertaining. There are also several indexes that make searching for a movie by director, cast, etc. easy. Movies are rated on a four "bone" (this is from "VideoHound" after all) scale. Films reviewed range from G-rated to Unrated to a few NC-17 offerings, like "Pink Flamingos" by John Waters.
This is really a valuable reference and an entertaining book. Anyone who likes B-movies and strange mainstream films needs to get this. I can't imagine anyone really being disappointed with it. I think it's great for "beginners" as well as more seasoned veterans. For a tome that covers all genres (sci-fi, horror, camp, etc.), it does so competently. Sure, no book is going to be able to completely cover such extensive territory, but this is the best thing going. Next to my dictionary, this book has gotten the most use from me. A big book, it's absolutely worth the money. I've enjoyed watching numerous gems found in it.
The forward comes from Bruce Campbell, a cult favorite as well as a favorite of my children. (film buffs all)
