You need this book! So many movies—so little time! Who can see them all? And who can you trust? The Phantom of the Movies®! The Phantom provides an authoritative, unique, and informative spin on the movies we all love, even when they don't deserve it!"
Clive Barker
The Phantom of the Movies' ®VideoScope is for every fan of the obscure and the witty, the weird, the terrifying, and the fantastic: a comprehensive and passionate celebration of movies in all their tacky glamour. I can't imagine any film fans who wouldn't want a copy of this book on their shelves."
John Sayles
The Phantom's VideoScope is an almost free-associational speed-rap on genre and fringe movies. If you're interested in films made far off the beaten path, you'll find them here.
