Essential Eurocult books/magazines
« on: 11 Jul 2007 - 12:45 »

What's everyones favorite Eurocult books and magazines?
Bloodbuster's 220 page Italian crime review book CINICI INFAMI E VIOLENTI is amazing and has yet to be beaten,Italian language only but an essential reference guide.
CINE 70 is also Italian language but is filled with reviews of the most obscure Italian b-movies from the 70's and some great interviews and posterart,currently on #10 which features an Agostina Belli(Revolver,Night of the Devils etc)interview.
There's also the Midnight Media publications including their regular review guide IS IT UNCUT and their specials like BLAZING MAGNUMS and the GIALLO SCRAPBOOK,great.

In addition to the ones you've already mentioned I also recommend Adrian Luther-Smiths essential Giallo reference guide 'Blood & Black Lace'.

I'll add IMMORAL TALES.  It covers in great detail the films and background of Jess Franco and Jean Rollin among others, and has turned me on to a number of great films.

That's the third cover i've seen for that book, it must sell okay. I've got the first issue with the red border.

The Glittering Images Western 'All Italiana books are essential.  Full of poster art, lobby cards and contains reviews and plot summaries for each film covered.  Really great stuff.

I second Johny's recommendation of the Blood & Black Lace book- its an essential and probably the greatest Euro Cult book ever published IMO.

there are a few more though:



My friend Jay has written this book about Italian cannibal & zombie films. Features reviews for every film, some rare poster artwork and its very informative. Also features titles that don't belong in these two genres but have such elements.

Amazon LINK



This one is highly recommended as well. I don't agree with many of its reviews as the guy trashes even films such as TENEBRE, but overall, the book has some great interviews with maestros such as Argento, Fulci, Margheriti, Lenzi and lots more!

I have the SPAGHETTI NIGHTMARES and the EATEN ALIVE! books as well as three of the DARK SIDE books. I have the BEYOND TERROR book, an excellent work on the films of Lucio Fulci, ITALIAN HORROR from Midnight Marquee and the recent BOOK OF THE DEAD from Fab Press.

Also I have the FLESH & BLOOD COMPENDIUM from Fab Press covers Euro stuff as well. Did anyone happen to get that massive tome GODS IN POLYESTER: A TRIP THROUGH 70s CINEMA OBSCURA? I may have the subtitle off a bit but I anxiously awaited this books release and tried to order it from a local Borders store. I assumed it hadn't come out yet. The next time I saw something about it, it was out of print!

I missed this one and really need a copy..... Looks like a must-own. Can anybody comment on it? Perhaps somebody here would like to sell their copy?



Does it focus only on CH or covers his whole filmography?

It covers his whole filmography. I wouldn't say it's up to the standard of their later books either.

Glad you liked Eaten Alive! Now working on book two which is going to be a monster in scale and depth.

Thanks for nice words, guys.
