Product Description

From Amazon

Not since "Mystery Science Theater 3000" have the silly delights of '50s and '60s B movies been celebrated with as much affection and wry wit as they are in this assortment of 18 genre spoofs that range from horror to sci-fi to teen biker to western. Check out these titles: "The Yellers of Their Eyes," "The Thing from Lover's Lane," "The Blood on Satan's Harley," "I Was a Teenage Boycrazy Blob." I especially appreciate how surreal most of the stories are: the authors have taken their memories of those movies experienced through squawky outdoor speakers and fogged windshields, and warped them into a new dimension where wicked satire creates monsters even funnier than the originals. Two of these tales were nominated for a 1997 Bram Stoker Award--Robert Devereaux's "The Slobbering Tongue That Ate the Frightfully Huge Woman" and the late Karl Edward Wagner's "Plan 10 from Inner Space."

3.0 out of 5 stars A little old-fashioned June 4 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a book for thirty year old (or more) people (like myself) : when you read these stories you think that you are watching again one of that old remakes, like "The Bubble". There is action, there is suspense, but there is a lack of novelty. It is like a cookie, it is nice, but you already know the taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun with the 50s, 60s, etc. Aug. 23 2002

This book is intended to be a "period piece." It's not today's sci fi (exactly) - look at the title, look at the cover. Just great stories and great fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun but scattershot July 6 2010
By Joshua Wittenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While the book lives up to the title, though the cover art makes little sense, the stories are hit and miss. It would've been nice to see a list of the stories included. As someone who appreciates the drive-in culture and still actually goes to the drive-in, there's very few mentions of actual drive-ins in these stories. Most though hit the b-movie pastiche spot on. One to stay away from, for various reasons, is the dreadful 'Jungle J.D.' by Steve Rasnic Tem.
