Overview

Originally published as "Fervid Filmmaking" in a limited edition by McFarland Press, MOVIE OUTLAW: THE PREQUEL is back where it belongs, as part of the MOVIE OUTLAW book series. MOVIE OUTLAW: THE PREQUEL is a revamped, beefed-up, recharged republishing of what was previously-known as "Fervid Filmmaking". Featuring 70 "underseen" films including "Keep Off My Grass", "Dr. Caligari", "Forbidden Zone", "Coonskin", "Head", "The World's Greatest Sinner", "Psychos in Love" and many more. Also features a rare interview with "Dr. Caligari" director Stephen Sayadian. A new addition to the acclaimed MOVIE OUTLAW series. Bigger, better - CHEAPER!

From the original volume: "For fervid or feverish film professionals and buffs, there is a term--"Kitchen Sink movies"--referring to films that take severe-angle turns at unexpected moments, where a filmmaker will borrow from across the artistic spectrum to create a wild, disorienting ride. They are what this book is about. Throwing marketing reports and box-office projections to the wind, the writer-director-producers conjure a whirl of ideas, of images, of themes or plots, that inexplicably come together despite conventional reason. Almost always cult films, these movies rarely succeed in their first run. Indeed, some of the very best remain unknown to mainstream audiences."
