Reviews

Choosing the greatest cult films is a losing proposition because it is so hard to get consensus. Olson (Possessed Women, Haunted States, with Carrielynn D. Reinhard, 2016) used crowdsourcing and his own longtime critical viewing to identify the 100 best, limited to one per director. Each entry is about two pages in length; information includes a brief plot line, background information about the film's development and production, editorial commentary, and a see also list of similar films. Most entries include a black-and-white studio photo; several entries have a "spotlight" box about the film studio, writer, director, or actor. Five appendixes and almost forty pages of endnotes conclude the volume. The films selected skew toward horror/violence, covering Death Race, Evil Death II, Punisher: War Zone, and Trick`r Treat. The writing is clear. The commentary is personal, yet expert and justified. This collection should attract film fans and start heated discussions. * CHOICE *

Whether you're a cult movie film fanatic or a casual fan of cult films, there's something here for everyone be it an unknown movie that sparks your interest or film history you never knew about. Recommended. * DVD Corner *
