His other published works include What's A Nice Actor Like You Doing In A Movie Like This?; Speccy Nation: A Tribute To The Golden Age Of British Gaming; the Edgar Allen Poe graphic novel Nevermore, a comic book adaptation of Jason and the Argonauts; unofficial biographies of George Clooney and Hugh Grant, as well as licensed publications such as The Official Star Wars Episode II Annual and two official Lord of the Rings movie magazines. He has sat on several BAFTA juries and has been a videogames consultant for Guinness World Records, was formerly the editor of Movie Insider magazine, and has provided incisive interviews and ribald reviews for DVD & Blu-ray Review, Hotdog, Eurogamer, Badass Digest and The Big Issue In The North.

I was wrong. the book is written by someone that seems to know very little about the films he's writing about. At times it feels like he hasn't even watched the films and has just stolen reviews off IMDB and information off wikipedia. He is also missing so many films from the book, again leading to me believeing he just pulled a random list off a website and just typed a little text to go with them...
its a real shame as there is a market for a good book about creature features but this is definitely not it.....
YOUR MONEY IS BETTER SPENT ELSEWHERE!!!!!!!

The lovely artwork by Doug Slack that accompanies each new section is charmingly off-beat, and wholly tonally appropriate for the book's vibe. My favorite was the frog with the single bulging eye. I must say that the Kindle edition I read contained a few grammatical and formatting errors that I hope will be corrected in future editions. Not as good as the same author's earlier What's A Nice Actor Like You Doing In A Movie Like This?, but I think that's due to the fact that by limiting himself to one genre, Whitehead can only make funny observations on the same rehashed plot beats so many times. And hoo boy, if this book teaches you one thing, it's that exploitation movies do love repetition. I didn't know crazy animals loved town festivals so much!
In short: a decent bathroom book if you're into horror movies.
The book includes the classic films to others less known,I think it's not complete but is enough for a first initiation in this world.I like it because it classified the films in a different groups or kind of animals.It would be better with photographs because there's no one.
