World renowned film critic Alan Jones takes you on a startling tour through the extremes of the exploitation movie's Golden Era of 1935-1985. With an introduction by Combat Shock writer/director Buddy Giovinazzo, The FrightFest Guide to Exploitation Movies fully captures the range of the entire exploitation spectrum.

Exploding off the page with over 1,000 of the best examples of exploitation, grindhouse, and pulp film poster design comes The Art of the B Movie Poster, a collection of incredible posters from low-budget films from the 1940s, 50s, 60s, and 70s. Once relegated to the underground and midnight movie circuit, these films and their bombastic advertisements are experiencing a surge of mainstream popularity driven by fans appreciative of the artistic skill, distinctive aesthetic, and unabashed sensationalism they relied on to make a profit, with the quality of the poster often far surpassing that of the film itself. The book celebrates this tradition with sections divided into "moral panic" films, action, horror, sci-fi, and of course, sex, each introduced with short essays by genre experts such as Kim Newman, Eric Schaffer, Simon Sheridan, Vern, and author Stephen Jones, winner of the Horror Writer's Association 2015 Bram Stoker Award for Non-Fiction. Edited by Adam Newell and featuring an introduction by author and filmmaker Pete Tombs, The Art of the B Movie Poster is a loving tribute to the artwork and artists that brought biker gangs, jungle girls, James Bond rip-offs and reefer heads to life for audiences around the world.

This book is an ambitious, exhaustive and utterly obsessive attempt to make sense of over a century of exploitation & cult cinema, and how that has interacted with the mainstream. Arnold Schwarzenegger went from being 'Hercules in New York' to Governor of the wealthiest U.S. State! Ronald Reagan once starred alongside Bozo the Chimp before he became the ruler of the free world. Millions flock to see the blockbuster likes of 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises', sophisticated and ridiculously expensive upgrades of low-budget movies and serials once considered strictly for comic-reading kids. 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' stormed the arthouses and 'Kill Bill' was an unlikley smash around the world, but neither improved on more obscure yet amazing Hong Kong and Taiwanese wuxia and kung fu movies, and who would settle for dull Uma Thurman when you could have Meiko Kaji as 'Lady Snowblood'?
