I read this book for the first time maybe about 15 years ago after having wandered into a screening of Nick Zedd's short film "Police State" and becoming curious about this very underground and very local genre of film. I enjoyed it, learned quite a lot of interesting things and ended up watching the work of most of the artists in the book, particularly Cassandra Stark (also known as Casandra Stark Mele or Ro Mello)

Re-reading for inspiration for a couple of short film projects on the go.......the last word on a much overlooked cinema movement, deffo one of the most important for me.x

This book has tons of great interviews and doesn't rely heavily on "shock". An honest account of the work of our greatest transgressive filmmakers, smartly done. So many good pictures, too.
