Trash Cinema (2015, Bear Manor)

Multiple Entries


It is frequently said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and nowhere is this statement more accurate than in the case of obscure bizarro exploitation films. Containing 55 essays on such trash classics as Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS (1975), I Spit on Your Grave (1978), and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965), Trash Cinema: A Celebration of Overlooked Masterpieces celebrates the good, the bad, and the ugly of these so-called “trash” films. Some of the pieces are reverential, some poke fun at the absurdity of the films, and others offer a more critical eye to these proceedings. With essays from more than 40 noted film writers, this collection is a one-of-a-kind treasure for those among us with a passion for the seedier side of cinema.

Hazmat (2016, Severed Press)



Captain Andy Gage is the galaxy's janitor. His team has scrubbed some of the worst things off the face of planets. Chemical waste. Radioactive garbage. All of it falls under Gage's watchful eye. Even biological waste. His team is the best Hazmat team around so, when they get a routine call about a biological issue on an inhospitable ice planet it is just another day at the office. This is different, though. Gage and his team are about to come face to face with an entity that they have never experienced before. Something that can control the base and lure in a starship just like Gage's so it can get off-planet and multiply. The only things standing in it's way? Gage and his janitors. On this base, hazardous materials is an understatement.
