5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from FAB press
Cinema sewer was originally an amateur fan magazine dedicated to the most depraved films emanating predominantly from Holland, Germany, Japan and, of course, the good old U. S. of A.

1.0 out of 5 stars The wrong kind of trash
As a long-time buyer of FAB Press publications sight unseen, this is a particular disappointment and the first time I have gone on record to recommend you skip one of their books. The content is lightweight, the commentary witless and the "DIY 'zine aesthetic" (ie hand-lettered rather than typeset) means it's a headache-inducing slog to read from start to finish. Hints of...

This review is from: Cinema Sewer (Paperback)
Cinema sewer was originally an amateur fan magazine dedicated to the most depraved films emanating predominantly from Holland, Germany, Japan and, of course, the good old U. S. of A. The book has collated the back issues & added an alleged extra 100 pages of capsule reviews (in tiny font and in `caps') of films depicting sexual violence towards women, disgusting perversions and pornographic variations which have to be read (seen?) to be believed. The book is littered with porno cartoons done by the author plus a few actual stills from the films discussed. A new classification (to me at any rate ) is the term Japanese cult - sleaze comedy : charming titles such as `Japanese torture comedy hour' should be sought out. Death videos are also covered for those so inclined.
One interesting title worth looking out for is Celebrity sex ( USA - 1991) featuring well known people behaving very badly before they were famous.
FAB Press have triumphed in filling a gap in the market - an intentional double entendre which becomes more meaningful when you read the book & flick through those cartoons.
The warning on the back sleeve "contains adult material" should be amended to "not for the squeamish or easily offended".

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted and Sick but Very Funny and Informative!, 21 Aug 2008

This review is from: Cinema Sewer (Paperback)
I knew nothing of Robin Bougie and Cinema Sewer before I purchased this book. I was hoping for a concise history of awful and tasteless movies and was a little disappointed at first glace because this is a handwritten comic of sorts. Most of the text is quite hard to read, as it is so small, and I could feel a headache coming on quite quickly, so I place the book by the toilet and put this buy down to impulsiveness.

That said, I started to read this seedy work as I sat on the loo and found myself laughing out load at the sarcasm, wit and pointed musings of its author. It is rare that an author makes me laugh out load and if I have to name a few on my short list they would be Douglas Adams, Spike Milligan and some of Woody Allan's short essays. Robin Bougie defiantly has a talent for writing his reviews and observations in a very amusing style.

I am now halfway through this informative rant and felt compelled to write a review because I am enjoying this book so much. I am almost happy that film stills do not accompany these reviews as Robin Bougie obviously has a stronger tolerance to on-screen obscenities than I could ever have. I could not watch most of the films reviewed without reaching for a sick-bowl and being permanently mentally scarred by the experience. So I am glad someone has done this for me and I am spared having to watch any of these twisted works.

"25 Cinematic Cliches I Never Wanna See Again" is a wonderful list (this idea should be turned into a book in its own right).

One coincidence that made this book worthy of purchase is that when I was young and impressionable a friend showed me a horrendous hardcore porn movie with a footless whore. As I rushed to eject the video before my mind was forever warped, I found that the few images I saw were so strong that I never really forgot them. The images were like nightmares that flashed into my mind and almost made me retch at the thought. In this book we get a mini-biography of the same footless wonder that was then called Long Jeanne Silver. I had almost, I stress, almost forgotten that sick moment in my life and have to thank Robin Bougie for resurrecting that horrible memory in such literal detail.

Finally, I recommend this book because it is very funny and spares one the chore of having to see any of these art-house classics.

1.0 out of 5 stars The wrong kind of trash, 20 Jan 2008
This review is from: Cinema Sewer (Paperback)
As a long-time buyer of FAB Press publications sight unseen, this is a particular disappointment and the first time I have gone on record to recommend you skip one of their books. The content is lightweight, the commentary witless and the "DIY 'zine aesthetic" (ie hand-lettered rather than typeset) means it's a headache-inducing slog to read from start to finish. Hints of a volume two to come seem wildly optimistic.

Sorry FAB, but you can do better than this.
