Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "the best movie critic in America," Joe Kane, The Phantom of the Movies®, has been a noted genre-film authority for many years. Now he shares his vast knowledge of genre-film culture in this fascinating collection. Kane has compiled more than twenty-five hundred reviews of horror, camp, sexploitation, sci-fi, thriller, and action films, along with exclusive interviews with some of the industry's giants — Jackie Chan, Pam Grier, Wes Craven, John Waters, and John Carpenter, to name just a few.

Kane's writing is irreverent, informative, incisive, and entertaining. Not only is The Phantom of the Movies'® VideoScope chock-full of reviews and interviews, it also includes insightful sidebars covering video trends, complete ordering information, DVD availability, and Internet resources. This is the ultimate video guide that all movie buffs must have in their collections.
