Scott Stine, author of The Gorehoundís Guides to Splatter Films, is back with this book, which picks up where his self-published Trashfiend magazine left off. Packed with film reviews, trivia, rare illustrations, exhaustive technical information, and written with a humorous but insightful flair that is sure to engage hardcore fans and curious browsers alike, Trashfiend takes a fun albeit critical look at an often-overlooked genre.
Includes interviews with John Stanley, ex-horror host who also directed Nightmare in Blood and authored The Creature Features Movie Guide; Richard Cardella, star and co-writer of The Crater Lake Monster; Bruce Jones, comic artist and writer with recent accolades for his work on The Incredible Hulk; and Cal Bolder, star of Jesse James Meets Frankensteinís Daughter, among other lesser known celebrities.
Articles include a detailed look at blaxploitation horror movies; Mars Attacks trading cards; Pat Boyette, prolific horror comic artist whose work has graced vintage Warren (Creepy) through to DC (The Witching Hour); Marvelís b&w horror comics line of the 1970s; Weird fiction digests (such as Magazine of Horror and Web of Terror Stories); collecting 8mm film reels; Aurora plastic hobby kits; and much more.
Includes over a hundred reproductions of rare ad art, as well as vintage books, toys and magazines from the era.
