    I can t really review this book with any kind of unbiased opinion, becauseI was Joe Bob s Researcher that sounded like it should be the title of a B movie, so read it in your head as such.Yep, tis true Check out the thank you s at the bottom of the page and you ll see my name right there in black and white It s funny, because no one ever thinks about the person who provides all the raw material for the authord let me just tell you this, you have not worked your ass off until you ve tried to find [...]

    Most bad movie fans know the author of this book, Joe Bob Briggs, either from his tv shows Joe Bob s Drive In Theater and Monstervision or his columns in newspapers and magazines He is the ultimate lover of bad, obscure, strange, and underground film and here he presents the movies in those categories that he calls shocking movies that changed history He may be overstating the case for changing history but the 15 films he reviews in this tome certainly made the public or a portion of the public [...]

    More Joe Bloom than Joe Bob although he is there in a thoughtful analysis of films that shook people up at the time of release Primary sources are used as much as possible, punctuated with fine insights Fantastic bibliography.Good stuff, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

    Being mean about this book is like kicking a puppy It is so obviously a work of true love of an ardent fanboy that it doesn t matter if the selections are VERY subjective and the prose hackneyed and repetitive the sheer enthusiasm of Briggs while he is breathlessly telling you about these INCREDIBLY SHOCKING films is endearing.Now I have seen nearly all of these films, and while Briggs makes a good case for any one of these films being shocking on its own, considered as a whole they fail to impr [...]

    I ve always had a passionate love of movies, made all the so in my childhood by watching shows like Up All Night with Gilbert Godfrey and Monster Vision with Joe Bob Briggs Sure, neither shows were in the habit of featuring Oscar worthy movies, but they did show movies with plenty of gore, violence, and busty, scantily clad women, which suited my adolescent tastes just fine Anyway, what I loved about Monster Vision was that it was hosted by a friendly, witty, salt of the Earth dude named Joe Bo [...]

    Joe Bob Briggs has written a thoughtful, inside baseball look at 15 movies that changed how we think of films Here they are The Cabinet of Dr Caligari 1919 Mom and Dad 1947 Creature from the Black Lagoon 1954 And God Created Woman 1956 The Curse of Frankenstein 1957 Blood Feast 1963 The Wild Bunch 1969 Shaft 1971 Deep Throat 1972 The Exorcist 1973 Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974 Drunken Master 1978 Reservoir Dogs 1992 Crash 1996 The most valuable thing about this [...]

    Exquisitely researched and brilliantly written this book is a win all the way around I love Joe Bob Briggs as an author However, I knocked off one full star for this egregious error that made my librarian brain melt In regards to Quentin Tarantino s name Connie was reading The Sound and the Fury at the time, and named her son after Quentin Compson, Faulkner s deaf and dumb innocent whose sense of beauty can only be expressed to himself Um no, Mr Briggs that would be Benjy Quentin, for those who [...]

    Joe Bob Briggs reins in the redneck persona and exposes of the film critic, John Bloom, in PROFOUNDLY DISTURBING but then John Bloom wouldn t have moved as many books as Joe Bob Briggs Here, he goes in for a detailed look at the films that changed history , such as BLOOD FEAST, THE WILD BUNCH, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, DEEP THROAT, among others.The persona and jokey tone of the previous collections of reviews are gone or sublimated, but the film buff knowledge comes right up front, and Joe [...]

    A terrific book detailing the stories behind several films that are were socially disturbing I really enjoyed that it detailed films that aren t normally covered by your traditional film history books Briggs has done his research and he knows his stuff He really goes all out to explain each choice and what makes that film so significant If you want a film history book that makes you think and could even change your opinion on specific films or even whole genres, this is your book For example, on [...]

    There s probably a special place in cineaste hell reserved for me for the sin of enjoying Joe Bob Briggs much then sacred cows like Pauline Kael and J Hoberman Brigg s conversational prose, and good ol boy style belie a deep knowledge of film history, a thoughtful and deep method, and most importantly a genuine affection for what he writes about that s largely absent from the work of most of today s professional critics It s fantastic to read the likes of Hershel Gordan Lewis written about with [...]

    i miss the drive in i miss the redskin, the vaska, and the 82nd twin the theater haunts of my childhood i miss being surprised and i miss being scared sometimes i feel like movies are the only thing worth a damn if you love the movies and going to the movies, two different things entirely then read this.

    A fine companion to Joe Bob s Profoundly Erotic actually, this one came first The one bad effect this book had on me is that I m really dying to see Mom and Dad but probably never will Oh, well.

    Mark Dunn
    This is an excellent book if you want facts about movies you love hate but it was a lot like reading the encyclopedia I honestly couldn t read the whole thing.

    Heather Domin
    I really, really enjoyed this book The only reason I didn t give it 5 stars is because I wish it had an afterword to match the introduction.

    Jesse Hebert
    Changed History Not by a long shot Not most of em, at any rate Entertaining enough.

    Rick
    It will take me 100 years to watch all the movies mentioned in this book, but I will give it a try.

    Mike Hunchback
    One of the most essential books on film of the last 20 years A staggering work, no one should call himself a true fan of cinema without it.

    Kevin
    excellent genre book for movie fans
