Double Shock Double Impact! Two Front Covers! Horror and fantasy cinema from around the world with a distinctive retro sensibility, CREEPING FLESH returns for more obscure and vilified horror movies, “lost” films, and an appreciation of British exploitation.

CREEPING FLESH 2 follows the success of the first volume with another highly entertaining and informative mix of the classic and the obscure in exploitation movies and archive television.

This all-new collection has reviews, interviews and features on cruel fantasy cinema, cheerleader films of the 1970s, Triad cinema, Australian fantasy, childrens’ television fantasy, and much more.
