Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Running to 528 large-format pages, Nightmare USA is a veritable encyclopedia of grindhouse cinema - it s one of the most acclaimed genre film books ever published, and after having Sold Out three times over already, it s finally back in print! From Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill) to Eli Roth (Hostel), the young guns of modern Hollywood just can t get enough of that exploitation film high. That s because, between 1970 and 1985, American Exploitation movies went berserk. With censorship relaxed, and the gate to excess wide open, horror offered a vibrant alternative to the mainstream of American cinema. Luridly titled wonders like The Headless Eyes, Scream Bloody Murder and Hitch Hike to Hell were everywhere, from the drive-ins of Texas to the grindhouses of New York. Massively popular around the world, American exploitation movies added immensely to the richness of the nation s cinema. Built on five years of research, Nightmare USA explores the development of America s subterranean horror film industry, spotlighting some of the wildest films imaginable from an era unchecked by censorship or good taste. Ranging from cult favourites like I Drink Your Blood to stylish mind-benders like Messiah of Evil and shockers like Don t Go in the House, Nightmare USA goes where no other in-depth study has gone before, revealing the fascinating true stories behind classics and obscurities alike. Author Stephen Thrower has explored the attics and cellars of American cinema, delved beneath the floorboards, peered between the walls, searching for the strangest, most exotic cine-lifeforms. Nightmare USA is the reader s guide to what lies beyond the mainstream of American horror, dispelling the shadows to meet the men and women behind fifteen years of screen terror: the Exploitation Independents! This massive overview of the Horror genre s development through the 1970s and 1980s features: In-depth EXCLUSIVE interviews with twenty-five grindhouse movie makers, many of whom are discussing their work for the first time ever in print, including David Durston (I Drink Your Blood), Robert Endelson (Fight for Your Life), Frederick Friedel (Axe), Don Jones (Schoolgirls in Chains); and Joseph Ellison (Don t Go in the House). Over 175 individual films reviewed, with full cast and crew credits. Vast quantities of previously unpublished stills, posters, press-books, plus behind-the-scenes photographs from the filmmakers own collections. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : A kaleidoscopic journey through the heyday of Horror and Exploitation Cinema in America! Running to 528 large-format pages, Nightmare USA is a veritable encyclopedia of grindhouse cinema! From Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill) to Eli Roth (Hostel), the young guns of modern Hollywood just can't get enough of that exploitation film high. That's because, between 1970 and 1985, American Exploitation movies went berserk. Luridly titled wonders like The Headless Eyes, Scream Bloody Murder and Hitch Hike to Hell were everywhere, touting a combination of mind-bruising violence, weird sex and drug-soaked delirium. American exploitation movies added immensely to the richness of the nation's cinema, but they have remained persona non grata in most serious studies of American film. Until now... Built on five years of research, Nightmare USA explores the development of America's subterranean horror film industry, spotlighting some of the wildest films imaginable from an era unchecked by censorship or 'good taste.' Ranging from cult favourites like I Drink Your Blood to stylish mind-benders like Messiah of Evil and ultra-violent shockers like Don't Go in the House, Nightmare, USA goes where no other in-depth study has gone before, revealing the fascinating true stories behind classics and obscurities alike. Nightmare USA is the reader's guide to what lies beyond the mainstream of American horror, dispelling the shadows to meet the men and women behind fifteen years of screen terror: the Exploitation Independents! This massive overview of the Horror genre's development through the 1970s and 1980s features: In-depth EXCLUSIVE interviews with 25 grindhouse movie makers, many of whom are discussing their work for the first time ever in print. Over 175 individual films reviewed, with full cast and crew credits. Vast quantities of previously unpublished stills, posters, press-books, plus behind-the-scenes photographs from the filmmakers' own collections. TABLE OF CONTENTS Section On

Critique: Digs right down into the fetid underbelly of the filmmaking scene. Perhaps the finest book ever produced on the subject of American exploitation cinema - skilfully and informatively written and packed throughout with some of the rarest and most beautifully garish imagery ever to see print. Book of the year? No doubt. --Alan Simpson, SGM

Sets the bar impossibly high for anyone else wanting to contribute to the field. Remember the thrill that came from your first horror movie book, when everything was new and magical? I felt that excitement again as I began paging through Nightmare USA. --Brain Blasters

Thrower's personal insight and enthusiasm make Nightmare USA a consistent pleasure to read. Too much writing on the darker corners of cinema is just functional, but his prose throbs with twisted love. This is a truly important film book, in itself as a piece of writing but also as a direction to areas of film history that remain to be explored. --Video Watchdog
