SON OF GUILTY PLEASURES OF THE HORROR FILM
In this second volume of cinematic guilty pleasures, our writers again eloquently explain why movies which the majority of viewers consider subpar are so very special as movie experiences to them personally. These movies are not extraordinary in any way, and most of them contain fundamental flaws in craft, yet as filtered through the psyches of the writers involved, these guilty pleasures ultimately become something very special. And thus the reason why this book exists... to demonstrate the fact that the pleasures movies give far outweigh any guilt factor involved in selections such as The She Creature, Robot Monster, Omega Man, Frankenstein’s Daughter, Giant Gila Monster, Private Parts, Horror Island, Frankenstein Conquers the World, Strange Door, Juggernaut and many other curious choices.
