    The Phantom Knows!

    I've subscribed to the Phantom's Videoscope magazine for several years and practically wore out a copy of his prior video guide. I was delighted with this updated version, which covers most of the key and many obscure video releases in the genres of horror, science fiction, action, exploitation, j.d., comedy, and badfilm. The Phantom (Joe Kane) is an entertaining and informative writer. His reviews are fun, with bits of information about films ranging from CREATION OF THE HUMANOIDS to BLACK ORPHEUS. Also, unlike most other video guides, the Phantom wrote all of the reviews collected in the book and saw all of the films reviewed. His introduction to the book is a cogent appraisal of the current home video market and how you can use this guide to check out the less hyped, but more rewarding, films that snuck into release (e.g., TERROR SQUAD, T-FORCE, NAKED OBSESSION, etc.) I thought the book was a great cover-to-cover read, and it will be an essential reference in the years to come. The book also includes fine interviews with major cult film personalities (e.g, John Waters, Sam Raimi, Jean-Claude Van Damme), memorable quotes from films, backstories, and more. This book belongs on your reference shelf with the two Psychotronic volumes by Michael Weldon and The Overlook Film Encyclopedias on Horror and Science Fiction by Phil Hardy.

    The Phantom Sees All, Reviews All!

    NY Daily News columnist the Phantom (Joe Kane) has been haunting the B-movie seen since the mid-Seventies, when he edited the tabloid monster movies magazine THE MONSTER TIMES. Kane has a breezy, witty review style, telling it like he believes it is. He'll give a good review of a halfway decent indie effort over a bloated Hollywood bomb any day, and can get quite emotional over the merits of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. B-movie and cult flick fans have a friend indeed in the Phantom!
