Re/Search #10: Incredibly Strange Films is a functional guide to important territory neglected by the film-criticism establishment, spotlighting unhailed directors-Herschell Gordon Lewis, Russ Meyer, Larry Cohen and others-who have been critically consigned to the ghettos of gore and sexploitation films. In-depth interviews focus on philosophy, while anecdotes entertain as well as illuminate theory.

I used to have loads of film books - I've cut back prior to moving house, but some I couldn't bring myself to part with and this is one. It's not a great book, but there are some seriously wacky films in here. ( )

THE Bible for fans of cult movies. Great interviews and articles. My copy has survived countless readings and I still anticipate Vol2. ( )

Collection of reviews/interviews about random exploitation films of the '50's, '60's, and '70's. Movies dealing with gore, sadism, and drug use are highlighted. ( )

This book explores the world of B-movie, exploitation, horror, and genre films through interviews with directors, actors, and producers; articles on film genres; and essays on individual films. The entire book is nicely illustrated with film stills and movie posters.

The interview section is by far the strongest part of the book, particularly the interviews with Larry Cohen, Frank Henenlotter, Herschell Gordon Lewis and Russ Meyer.
