This guide to "B" films includes "Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman", "The Killer Shrews" and "Invasion of the Blood Farmers", which have developed followings not because of their quality but because they are very strange.

As the author says in the preface, "cult horror films are often, but not necessarily bad, and even when they are, they aren't a total loss. What these films seem to have in common is that they're all kind of offbeat, kind of weird, kind of strange. Brains float in fish tanks, giant creatures level metropolitan areas, presidential advisors turn into werewolves, and vampire dogs roam the countryside in search of victims." And this is probably the best and most intelligent guide to this genre: in addition to the usual information about each film covered, Everman makes larger points about the meaning of each movie (his major conclusion: that horror films are inherently conservative: they are about things-the-way-they-should-be suddenly being challenged by some horrible anomaly, and the struggle to regain normalcy). Recommended.
