"When was the last time you read a book that opened up a whole new
world of dazzling information? This truly ground-breaking labor of
love is remarkable in scope, hugely entertaining and crammed with
little-known facts." -- Alan Jones, Fangoria
"One of the most fascinating and important film books in recent memory, Thrower's massive tome is not just a tribute to the joys of regional filmmaking, it's also ultimately nothing less than a secret history of American cinema." -- Travis Crawford, Film Comment
"The best book about the blood-drenched, scream-inducing, golden era of US independent horror cinema imaginable. Buy or die!" -- Billy Chainsaw, Bizarre
