It’s a tip-off to Weldon’s taste in movies that 10 of the films listed in this book have titles beginning with Attack of…(The Crab Monsters; The Giant Leeches; The Mushroom People, etc.). In his afterword he writes, “I love inept, badly made movies,” and the book pretty much corroborates that admission. Movie fans who share Weldon’s predilections may want to have the book around to consult in case they forget who was responsible for, say, The Terror (Boris Karloff, Jack Nicholson and Francis Coppola).
