Organized by genre, including comedy, horror, action, drama, fantasy, and sci-fi, this title offers 300 reviews of genre films from all over the world, 160 photos, and exclusive interviews and quotes from the people behind some of the most offbeat films ever made.
Alongside this curated list of viewing recommendations, longtime fans and newcomers to strange cinema gain bits of fun and informative trivia. For example, David Caruso’s film debut was Without Warning (1980), a carefree trip into the woods thwarted by killer flying alien discs. Lurking in these so-bad-they’re-good-films, you’ll find other familiar actors like David Carradine, James Brolin, Martin Landau, and Ryan Gosling in films like Death Race 2,000 (1975), The Car (1977), The Being (1983), and Lost River (2014). The zombie sushi, by the way, is from Dead Sushi (2012).
The Ultimate Guide to Strange Cinema will release on November 28, 2017. It is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Author Michael Vaughn takes readers on an informative and entertaining trip down history lane in Horror and Science Fiction cinema.
It is interesting how Horror and Sci-Fi cinema has evolved over the decades. Dating back to the 18th century, Horror has progressed in all areas. From the performances of actors and actresses to the more advanced aspects, such as technological enhancements and behind-the-scenes productions.
Then you have the central themes of the movies themselves. Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Monsters, Slashers, Serial Killers, and so on. All of these themes have changed over the years. Now, they get more dark and sadistic. With the underground cult and snuff films that are being made nowadays. Cinema has become strange.
