The only book you’ll ever need on 1990s trash-horror cinema, brought to you by the maniacs behind Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film!

Bleeding Skull!: A 1990s Trash-Horror Odyssey is a celebration of the most obscure, bizarre, and brain-busting movies ever made, featuring 250 in-depth reviews that have escaped the radar of people with taste and the tolerance of critics. Goregasm! I Was a Teenage Serial Killer! Satan Claus! Die Hard Dracula! This book gets deep into gutter-level, no-budget horror, from shot-on-VHS revelations (Eyes of the Werewolf) to forgotten outsider art hallucinations (Alien Beasts).

It’s all here: David “The Rock” Nelson, Mexican Freddy Kruegers, shapeshifting Hare Krishna demons who crash a BBQ, and two dinosaurs that dump body parts into a tiny swimming pool. And it’s all curated by the enthusiastic minds behind BleedingSkull.com, the world’s foremost authority on trash obscurities. Jam-packed with rare photographs, advertisements, and VHS sleeves (most of which have never been seen before), Bleeding Skull!: A 1990s Trash-Horror Odyssey is an edifying, laugh-out-loud guide to the dusty inventory of the greatest video store that never existed.
