Cult Cinema: An Arrow Video Companion (Limited Edition) Hardback

Arrow Video is one of the foremost distributors of cult cinema on DVD and Blu-ray. From the classic to the obscure, the Arrow Video collection encompasses all styles and genres: horror films and Westerns, science fiction and sex comedies, yakuza epics and neo-noirs, the subversive, the transgressive and the unclassifiable.

This hardback volume brings together 25 of the world’s leading genre experts and critics to guide you through the multi-faceted beast that is cult cinema. Exploring the stars, the filmmakers and the trends, Cult Cinema: An Arrow Video Companion provides an intriguing trip down the less well-trodden paths of filmdom.

Featuring the writing of: Robin Bougie, Michael Brooke, Paul Corupe, David Del Valle, David Flint, Kevin Gilvear, Joel Harley, David Hayles, Pasquale Iannone, Alan Jones, Tim Lucas, Michael Mackenzie, Maitland McDonagh, Tom Mes, John Kenneth Muir, Kim Newman, James Oliver, Vic Pratt, Jasper Sharp, Yvonne D. Sims, Kenneth J. Souza, Mike Sutton, Stephen Thrower, Caelum Vatnsdal, Doug Weir.

With an introduction by filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High Rise, Free Fire)

I got delivery today of the Book
The front artwork of the book is very nice looking and includes a removable Art Card of the front cover

The Book itself is mostly the previous content from booklets that came with each blu-ray release with some new writings
It's OK bit could have been lot better

If you already own most of Arrow Video Releases that came with booklets you won't see much new material there is also an unusual design decision of photos been split down the middle which looks a bit strange I would have preferred the photos full image not split image and the text front type is bit unusual

I love Arrow Video releases and even though this book does has it's faults I'm glad to have it in my collection
I'm glad It only cost me £35.00 and not £65
