    Sometimes when I surf/search the web for things that interest me,I come across a series of books called Bizarre Sinema.The one I'm interested in is this one:

    [​IMG]
    But I think it's too expensive (about $50).The discription is very promising though:
    Anyone seen this or read it?Is it worth the money?Is it actually written/translated in English??​
    Any info is appreciated!​
    Thanks!​

    I know you'd rather watch movies than read about them ;) but isn't there anyone who knows more about this book?

    Sorry, I've never seen the book. I like to read about them - but alas, this one hasn't crossed my path.

    You have to agree that it looks good don't it?
    I'll perhaps include it in one of my future orders and let you know how it is.
    I'll have to think about it,it's alot of money.

    It sounds great! $50 for a book though, a bit pricey. Might be worth it, but an expensive "test".

    I forgot to post the link (the also have the other episodes):
    http://www.lfvw.com/bizarre_sinema2.html
    I never ordered from Luminous,heard some mixed opinions about them.
    They DO have some great stuff though.
    International shipping for this item is "only" $15.70 which makes the book $65.65 = €53,58!

    So,reviving "ye olde threadde" ;).
    Perhaps now some people have read this book?I still haven't bought it but at the moment I'm upgrading my collections (DVD,CD and Books).So I just might buy it anytime in the future ( @ http://www.xploitedcinema.com/books/books.asp?title=5372 )
    Anyone have any info/comments on this particular book?Or others in the series?
    They also have a Western collection.

    Anyone familiar with that one?

    A new customer review added to the ^^ above Jim Harper book. ^^
    Although it seems a cool book,I have the feeling I already know much of the stuff that's inside :D

    The Bizarre Sinema book on the other hand looks like a more classy work with more info I don't know much about yet.
    I will order it this week and try to write a review when I'm done reading.
    Hell,I might even order that Harper book too! :D

    I have thw Bizarre Sinema book. I've read it many times in reference to Bava, Margheriti, and the other directors discussed. The text is written in 3 languages, so only a 3rd of the book is in english. The poster art reproductions inside are worth the price of the book!
