Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos & Cult Zombies Amok in the 666 Most Ear- and Eye-Ripping Big-Scream Films Ever!

Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos & Cult Zombies Amok in the 666 Most Ear- and Eye-Ripping Big-Scream Films Ever! was recently previewed on Boing Boing.

I pretty much came presold on this book. It’s a survey of the freaking amazing poster art that movies used to have, specifically focusing on the subgenres of B and C horror movies, Troma style freakouts, and Barbarian movies. There are some great Italian Conan ripoffs mentioned in the Boing Boing article that I’ve never even heard of.

Unrelated aside: Pictured above is the art for the Vincent Price classic THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL, packaged in the US at one time as THE CONQUEROR WORM, whose poster is included in this art collection. I’ve been working my way through the Scream Factory’s Vincent Price Collection with my gaming group. Now, if you’re familiar with the Poe/Corman oeuvre, you’ll know that it tends to fall on the campy side. This movie, not at all. It is relentlessly grim. After MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, everyone had a smile on their face and we still quote bits of that film to each other. After WITCHFINDER and its gruesome conclusion, there wasn’t a smile to be had.

So I’ve preordered my copy. Check out the Amazon link below to check out yours.
