If you like B-Movies, you need this book

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.

    1. Nathan, I just finished the book and loved it! I posted a review on Amazon, so it should be approved in a couple of days. Thanks for a fun read and an awesome resource.

  1. Looks like fun! I just ordered my copy from Amazon. I imagine the trick will be in finding the actual movies to go along with the reviews, but I’m curious to see if any of my favorites are in there.

  2. I got the book from Amazon last week. I’ve only seen one of the movies covered (Killer Klowns) so I have my work cut out for me.

    This is a fun book. Nathan’s style is such that reading entries is very entertaining, even for movies I haven’t seen. Ebert’s reviews are dry by comparison, and I certainly wouldn’t read through them for fun. Good stuff!
