Sure, you've seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Maybe you've even sat all the way through Satan's Little Helper and The Wasp Woman. But as you'll find out in this shockingly tasteless collection of great awful movies, there's so much more to the world of truly bad film. Dive right into the steaming swamp of such disastrously delicious movies as: • Zombies on Broadway; Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory; Nudist Colony of the Dead; Killer Klowns from Outer Space; Cannibal Holocaust; Return to Horror High; Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter. For each movie, film buff and reviewer Steve Miller includes a list of principal cast, director, and producer, a plot overview, why the movie sucked, a rating, choice quotes, interesting trivia, and a quiz. If you've ever enjoyed awful movies, this is the book to have next to you on the couch, along with the popcorn, as the opening credits flash on the screen for Rockabilly Vampire in a double bill with Satanic Yuppies.
