Yeah, right...like I wasn't gonna like this book. My only complaint is the uneven nature of it - some films get overly lengthy entries, while others are only given a little over a page (a few films don't even get that). Also, the fact that different writers contributed to the different films' entries is a nice touch, but it also ends up preventing the book from having a very consistent feel. For instance, one film will be discussed in a very serious manner, but the next film will simply be made fun of, with no attempt to adress its historical or cultural context. Still, at the end of the day IT IS just a book about Italian cannibal and zombie movies, so I guess that kind of stuff can be overlooked. I'd recommend it for anyone as obsessed with these kinds of films as I am, particularly if you're looking to find some new films to track down and watch.
