“If you’ve not read this book, then you’re not a film connoisseur. Do yourself a service and pick up Watt’s latest effort. Do it now – and you might learn something.” – Dr. Rhonda Baughman
“An essential guide to around 70 movies that are seldom discussed by other publications. Mike Watt exposes the reader to some wonderfully obscure and seldom seen films. Anyone into cinema should check this out. Granted, these films aren’t for everyone, but Mike uncovers some gritty gems here, maybe gems that the actors involved didn’t want anyone to see. With all the generic pablum being fed to mainstream audiences, this is a movie buffs wet dream. Written by a man who knows film. Check it out.” – 42nd Street Pete, Grindhouse Purgatory, 8mm Madness, and Gunfighters of the Drunken Master.
“Great reference guide for a lot of films that don’t make it into reference guides.” – Doug Waltz, Divine Exploitation
“Michael started young, coloring outside the Lines and now he’s operating outside the Law of Moviedome. Congratulations!” Bill Johnson (Texas Chain Saw Massacre II)
