Grindhouse cine explosion from the silver age of film fandom. Colour throughout. Rammed with rare artwork.

Starting life as the grindhouse fanzine THEME ’70 in the early nineties, this book is a mutation of all-new colour content and the raw, unfettered pages of those original out-of-print photocopied zines themselves. The result is an exploitation movie explosion of rare posters, stills, hard knuckle video reviews, pre-cert VHS commentary and eye-popping retro ads, all with a uniquely British zine twist!

If you are seeking Bruce Lee rip-offs, Claudia ‘Gator Bait’ Jennings, Peter Fonda vs Satanists, bald lunatics, kung-foolery, crown queen of blaxploitation Pam Grier, cannibals in the streets, Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson, sweet threads, Jim ‘Black Belt Jones’ Kelly, zombie voodoo, John Saxon and a pull-no-punches supporting cast… you’ve come to the right place!

About the author

Born in London, Mark J Banville has been a cult movie collector since the age of ten and started the exploitation movie fanzine THEME ’70 in 1992, which ran for seven issues. He has an obsession with exploitation movies, particularly the blaxploitation, horror and grindhouse varieties.


“As close to the 70s 42nd Street Grindhouse experience you'll get, but without the sticky floors, smell of rancid popcorn butter and risking your life taking a pee!”
William Lustig, director of Maniac, Vigilante, Maniac Cop and Hit List.
