Essential and entertaining for lovers of non mainstream cinema. Nathaniel Thompson has delved deeply into such a wide range of films and genres and always presents his thoughts in such an engaging manner. Even the films you may not be interested in or those that are not very good are fascinating to read about (and even maybe view once you have read the reviews). Be warned - this book may cost you as you start searching out all those more obscure titles!

5.0 out of 5 stars Be careful! This Book is Dangerous!!! 18 Jan. 2007
By Eyes and Teeth - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book. I am a certified DVD addict, specializing in extreme, exploitation, wild, wonderful, and off-the-radar films. This voluminous gem (along with 'Cult Flicks and Trash Pics') has served as my bible for the last year. This book has been an invaluable guide into opening my already wide-eyes to a number of amazing films that I had never even heard off...

The information provided in this book has paid for itself many times over. The reviews are very well written and informative...

The things that this book does better than any others I have encountered thus far, is that it explains and clarifies the differences amongst the different releases for the same film wonderfully. 'DVD Delerium' has saved me countless dollars, and has ceaselessly pointed me to the proper version of my favorite Italian Zombie films and Exploitation gems. There are so many versions of some of these films, that blindly picking the right one is a virtually impossibility without some authoritative help. This guide provides just that flawlessly...

The film selection within is exquisite: classics, foreign films, horror, exploitation, and just plain awesome films that managed to hide from us discerning addicts are all described perfectly...

The only drawback to purchasing this fantastic guide, is that it will invariably cause you to spend far too much money on DVD's... Good Luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for any intelligent movie fan 3 Oct. 2007
By Film Buff - Published on
This is an excellent, well-written book containing information about films many critics dismiss as unworthy of serious attention. In addition to the wealth of historical information contained within the critical evaluations of each film, the author also contrasts the quality of the various DVD editions available and provides the running times, region codes and names of the companies responsible for marketing these movies. This information is important when trying to find films that have not been readily available in the past and may be difficult to track down even now in a form that is watchable and not of embarrassingly poor quality.

As for the notion that this book is riddled with errors (an odd description for 2 errors found in a book of over 750 pages), it is safe to disregard such hyperbolic nonsense and purchase this excellent book, a very welcome addition to the library of any DVD collector and movie aficianado.
In closing, I would like to say the supposed error concerning Aguirre, Wrath of God is not an error at all. In fact, the author contrasts Fitzcarraldo to Aguirre, Wrath of God within the text of the review. The difficulties discussed in this book that occured during the filming of Aguirre are well-documented.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Delirium' - That's What I Suffer From... 25 Feb. 2011
By 4-Legged Defender - Published on
Verified Purchase
This first volume of indispensible information regarding cult, art house, European, horror, exploitation and offbeat mainstream flicks that missed the radar for most is still my favorite thus far (that said, volume 2 is being revised and reissued in April 2011, so this could soon change). Currently, there are four volumes in the series, and though I've yet to read the fourth installment, the third edition became (for me, at least) a bit too long in the reviews without adding or recommending much, and the comparisons between earlier releases, PAL, NTSC, Laserdisc and even VHS tapes got a bit out of hand, seeing as how most rabid collectors were happy to get ANY crappy copy of a flick they loved regardless of quality (read my review for details). I mean, in today's marketplace, is there any reason to discuss long dead formats like Laserdisc and VHS editions in a book called 'DVD Delirium'? In addition, the book's adled with typos and grammatical errors, but not enough to get worked up over.

OK, my pettiness aside, this book is a true blessing and an absolutely essential addition to any movie lover's library, and you're bound to learn more minutiae than should be permissible by law about films you already knew too much about. I also love the fact that the index breaks down films by genre and directors, as opposed to later editions which only alphabetizes the many films referenced in all editions (yeah, I know, my pettiness again). If you're only going to buy one or two cult, mondo and exploitation books to enjoy or add to a library, I heartily recommend this volume as being one of them, whether it be the first pressing or the expanded 'redux' edition that was released a while back. All volumes in the series are guilty of too many mainstream movie inclusions to pad things out, but this one has the fewest. (And yes, there are a few errors here and there, but to cite that this book was 'written by morons' as one reviewer maniacally raved, is just ridiculous and unwarranted). There's no way in hell you could suffer buyer's remorse from this purchase. You'll get feverish as you read, hastily writing a new 'want list' as your pulse quickens, culminating in a true 'dvd delirium' indeed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - Even Worth the Out of Print Price Tag 22 Sept. 2012
By Clapton Fan - Published on
For those of us whom are tired of low IMDB ratings for great horror/cult/obscure/campy films - look no further than this series of books.

As opposed to geek fanboys whom have inane standards of what motion pictures SHOULD be - this film reviews DVD releases of obscure and cult films for WHAT they are. It even includes comparisons of releases between territories - noting which features are included on what release, etc. - which is great for those of us with unlocked players.

It is also a great guide for people like myself whom want to re-discover hidden gems; and is a good insight on which OOP titles we should lay our money out to order (considering many carry a high price tag).

This guide is highly recommended for true fans of motion pictures that are made outside of the studio system.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Delirium Redux Volume 1 Review 29 Jan. 2011
By paul pietrzak - Published on
Verified Purchase
I owned the orignial DVD Delirium and when this title expanded and offered updated material I just had to have it as part of my movie review collection. Incisive reviews and author is extremely knowledgeable about formats makes this 700+ page book a must for any collector. Since I have a particular love for horror,foreign, and exploitation films, this is an invaluable book I can't stress that enough. What makes this an amazing read is coming across films you have not heard of and want to watch and DVD Delirium is packed with them! I also own DVD Delirium Volumes 2-4 and look forward to subsequent books.
