'A film-history tome written with more enthusiasm (and references to severed limbs) than most.' Cheryl Eddy,
Lee Karr guides us through what was, for many of those involved, the adventure of a lifetime. Written with a relaxed, but informed, sense of style, it's easy to tumble down the rabbit hole and get gleefully lost in a world of previously unknown stories from behind the scenes. Nick Thomson,

My favourite part was when they were talking about Romero s first vision of Day of the Dead. I was reading this part and was thinking, This is not the movie I remember . So I backtracked a bit a saw that this was his first vision and not what actually made it to the screen. This alone made it worth reading this book. It gave such a perspective on how much an original vision can change from conception to what really hits the screen. Stephanie Drum, Bea s Book Nook blog"
