I first met Nathan when we were on a panel about B-movies together at a Con. Now my regular readers know that I know B-movies, but I stood in awe of Nathan’s encyclopedic knowledge of crappy cinema. The man is amazing; like a walking catalog of movies about chainsaw cannibals, monster fish, and space aliens made out of trashbags. He asked me if I would be one of his cover blurbs for his upcoming book, and after reading the early copy, I was happy to do so.
I reread the final hardcopy this week. Golden Age of Crap is a remarkable look at a host of movies, some good, some bad, and some head-‘splodingly awful. Nathan’s reviews are snarky, funny, and always spot on. He even reviewed bad movies that I had never heard of, and that is really saying something.
GAoC is a great read. You should go check it out.
