    • Great collection of hilarious, disturbing, weird, etc. film poster art from mostly trashy films. Not totally complete (they say it's a lot of films you'll never see, but I've seen a lot of them, or at least hard of them). I found myself looking for some that weren't there, but discovered all kind of fantastical art. It's a slice of history and art and exploitation/vulgarity/absurdity/erotica/etc which kept me fascinated at my computer one night until very late. It sucks you in, much like the mid [...]


    • Sin tratar de defender lo indefendible, esta colección de posters de películas clase B (y peores) no solo es un grandioso recorrido histórico sobre la presentación gráfica de lo absurdamente burdo (y su evolución con el tiempo) sino que los textos explicativos que acompañan las imágenes muestran cómo han cambiado las actitudes respecto al "demasiado" en el cine desde los años treinta. No debería pretender decir que el Exploitation (y todos y cada uno de sus sub-géneros) tiene algún [...]


    • I love movie poster art, especially from the 60's and 70's. This book on Exploitation Poster Art was perfect. Unlike most movie poster books which just show the poster, this book fills in the gaps giving each poster a place in its history. Identifying the artist, when possible, also helps bring the poster to life as an art. Author, Tony Nourmand, really knows his material and gives an excellent look at the world of taboo films of post-Hays Code and pre-digital era of cinema.


    • The censors and the filmmakers shared one thing: a love of publicity.This is an excellent collection of artwork from the history of exploitation films. It differs from other books in this series in that it provides a running commentary for every poster, offering insight into the cultural contexts which spawned each film.
