IMHO the best film magazine of the world is the german SPLATTING IMAGE. Published since 1990, it deals with with every kind of cult film. The resident eurocult expert is one Christian Kessler: the guy has the greatest knowledge in the field I've ever encountered and he writes magnificently.

He also wrote the books WILKOMMEN IN DER HÖLLE (a spaghetti western encyclopedia) and the italian horror overview DAS WILDE AUGE.

Some of his SI-articles are up on his awfully designed website, but are in german of course:

I own only DAS WILDE AUGE (not in it's original form, a hungaro-german friend of mine photocopied the whole book for me :D - all of his books are OOP and very hard to find, on the german ebay they go for incredible prices) it has good picture material but nothing too exotic, in his books it's the text that counts.

Christian Kessler certainly knows his stuff,there's a couple of very informative letters from him in John Martin's 'Giallo Pages' magazine from the early 90's which are a great read.Also seen him on various German dvd releases doing interviews and extras.

It's in one of those letters he informs us about Marissa Mel being involved in a 'water sports' photo shoot and looking like she's really enjoying herself.

Just recieved the new issue of CINE 70 #10 from Italy this morning,features a great 30 page interview with Guido Zurli(Target,Strangler of Vienna,Virgin of Bali etc) plus articles and features on obscure Italian genre cinema from the 60's/70's all spread over 70 glossy pages.
Also noticed that they've reprinted #2 and added a new cover,has an interview with Mario Caiano plus articles on Femi Benussi and Olga Karlatos.

Which would be the best place to order CINE 70 - Kult or Thrauma?  I live in Australia and don't speak German or Italian so I'm just wondering which shop would be the most reliable and user friendly.

  I just got MORRICONE WESTERN and the ITALIA SEXY COMEDIES book will be in my hands in a few days.  I also received Midnight Media's CASTELLARI booklet, which is very amusing in places (especially the bit where Fulci told Castellari to fuck off), but I wish they'd stuck a few reviews of his movies in there as well, maybe making it similar to the old DAVID WARBECK-THE MAN AND HIS MOVIES booklet. 

The design of A VIOLENT PROFESSIONAL is really amazing and it was nice to see Craig Ledbetter get a quote on the back cover.  I wish he'd bring his magazine back.

i wonder why nobody has mentioned marco giusti's books:

Marco Giusti: Stracult - Dizionario del cinema italiano di genere
http://www.bloodbuster.com/index.php?idlingua=1&pageid=dettagli2&idprodotto=1990

Marco Giusti: Dizionario dei western all'italiana
http://www.bloodbuster.com/index.php?idlingua=1&pageid=dettagli2&idprodotto=3536

these are the definitive reference books on their subjects; "Dizionario del cinema italiano di genere" is oop, but definitely worth tracking down. of course, both are in italian language only and without any pictures.

marco giusti is THE expert on italian genre movies. he selected the films for the "cinema segreto italiano" and "spaghetti western" series at the venice film festival, and he wrote the preface to bloodbuster's "cinic, infami e violenti".  so, if you understand a little bit of italian you should get these books and forget all the second-rate stuff published elsewhere.

i can't recommend the book "willkommen in der hoelle" by christian kessler. the guy certainly knows the subject but his problem is, he writes in an awful pupil magazine style that spoils it all for the reader and the images are of very bad quality.

Welcome to the forum Heinz!

Thanks for recommending 'Dizionario del cinema italiano di genere', I'd not heard of it before but will definitely be keeping a look out for a second hand copy.

thought I'd post under this link, but I'm not sure if this is essential - has anyone read this or heard of it? I'll give it a go if no one else has.

I've come across items like that on Amazon a few times recently.... and I'm not entirely sure what they are.

Apparently they're wikipedia articles that have been licensed and published. Odd....

Hmm, thanks for that - I'll probably just read the wiki articles then and leave it at that.
