DVD Delirium Volume 4
« on: 26 Nov 2010 - 16:56 »

those nice fellows from FAB press have released the fourth volume in what must be the best-ever reference guide series both to b-movies in general and to dvd releases in particular.
This time Nathaniel Thompson has written all the reviews, covering absolutely everything that's worth investigating - from giallo to horror to trash, western and back again. Now BDs are also included. Pretty much essential reading, if you ask me!

I have seen this series mentioned before but often thought they would be quite redundant with the relative ease of information on DVD releases available on the web, not to mention how quickly some DVD releases seem to go out-of-print.

What sort of films does it cover and how much info is there?

Well that obviously depends on what you expect. The reviews are unifomly very good, plus the various DVD/BD editions are reviewed and compared. Naturally, the texts aren't that long, but that just goes with this type of reference book.
I've got all four volumes, and I love to just browse through them. there's loads of interesting stuff I hadn't heard of before, along with the usual classics.

And since you've asked - here's a complete list of the films reviewed in Volume 4, taken from their HP:

3 Dev Adam, 42nd Street Forever Volume 2: The Deuce, 42nd Street Forever Volume 3: Exploitation Explosion, 42nd Street Forever Volume 4, 42nd Street Forever Volume 5: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 42nd Street Forever: XXX-Treme Special Edition, The Alcove, Alice in Wonderland, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, All the Right Noises, All the Senator's Girls, All the Sins of Sodom, The Alleycat, Altin Cocuk, American Punks, Amok Train, L'Amour de Femme, And Then There Were None, Animalada, Anita, Anna to the Infinite Power, Anti-Clock, Aquarium, Arabian Nights, Arrabal Panik Cineast, The Art of Love, Aşka Susayanlar Seks Ve Cinayet, Attraction (Nerosubianco), Bacterium, Bad Biology, Bad Girls Dormitory, Bad Ronald, Bandh Darwaza, Basket Case 2, Batbabe: The Dark Nightie, Bay of Angels, The Beast in Space, Beauty Queen Butcher, The Bed Sitting Room, The Bermuda Depths, Between the Covers, Beyond the Door, The Big Switch, Black Emanuelle 2, Black Emmanuelle/White Emmanuelle, Black Night, The Black Pit of Dr. M, Black Roses, Black Test Car, Black Venus, Blood and Sex Nightmare, The Blood Rose, Bloodbath at the House of Death, Bloodsuckers from Outer Space, Bloody Moon, BoardingHouse, The Bodyguard, The Booby Hatch, Borges: A Life in Poetry, Born of Fire, Bottoms Up, Brainiac, Butterfly, Can I Do It...

That's pretty much the reason I don't have any interest in this new book Tim.

I appreciate that having a physical copy of a reviews book might be appealing to some but I'm happy to surf the web for reviews of potential purchases.

Of course there are many great review sites on the net, but I find the books quite appealing cause it's just very nice to browse through them. Plus, they're dead cheap!

Ah, and that old internet-problem again. That mentality is going to ruin publishers everywhere, since people have long forgotten that there's always work behind any form of content, and work needs to be paid. believe me, I know what I'm saying, I'm working for a publishing house myself.... (no, it's NOT FAB press....! lol). So personally I dont mind at all donating some 10 pounds for 400 pages of good reviews and analyses.

I bought volume 1 when it first came out and was disappointed to see that it's basically just DVD reviews from the Mondo Digital website collected in book form. Nothing against the reviews themselves (they're very nice actually) but IMO there's no reason to buy these books when you can read the same reviews online for free.

Books will always be OK though as long as they contain stuff that can't be sourced easily for free. I stopped buying film review books (Maltin, Time Out etc) about a year after I got connected to the web. I can't justify spending the money on them, money isn't tight it's just that I'd rather spend it elsewhere. I'll always buy big glossy hardbacks full of poster repoductions and the like though, those are the kind of books I love spending money on.

Harvey at FAB knows the industry is changing because of the net and because of this has delayed production of one of his latest books so he can prepare a digital version for selling online. It's the way the book industry is heading so I'm told.

I bought Vol. 4. Excellent reviews. Just as I bought many others guides, like Time Out, Maltin, Virgin etc, although I skipped last year's editions.

The thing is, even if the content is available online, when browsing through these books (or film guides in general), you stumble across titles you always miss when just following regular online sources. It's the same as cratedigging or browsing in a second-hand book store. I only read online reviews if someone points them out on a forum or when I'm already familiar with the title. Plus, I don't like reading long texts on a screen. And I'm happy to spend a few quid for the excellent work Fab Press does.

But more than willing to switch to e-books. Let's see what happens.

I must admit I'd pay for e-book versions of all the DVD Delirium books. Be great to have them all on my phone or PC, they'd be fully searchable too.

I own loads of the FAB Press books - Troy's Bava book, the Tigon and Fulci and Argento books are just ones on the desk in front of me know. Always happy to pay for these detailed research books, but I have never had much interest in books of reviews. There are more than enough high quality review sites, like EC, online that getting a book to read them in seems rather redundant.
