“Whether you’re just a hobby film scholar or overall enthusiast like we are, or you’re an actual historian or just dig great cult films, this book is for you.” Furious Cinema

“The hardback book looks like an oversized museum piece, replete with innumerable posters and still images on thick, high-quality, glossy paper. The layout and design are exquisite.” Rock Shock Pop

“A Prestigious Tome. To be fair, even accurate, all film flourishes in the darkness. Movies can never truly go extinct as long as writers, critics, fans and distributors such as these are vigilantly weighing, hashing out and considering the merit of even the most obscure objects of desire captured to the moving image. With Cult Epics Comprehensive Guide to Cult Cinema, Nico B promotes just that, while celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Cult Epics label in fine style.” Screen Anarchy
