When visiting sites or buying products from the folks below...
let `em know "J4HI" sent you! (all links will open a new window.)

A.V. CLUB This is an offshoot of "The Onion" website. In addition to solid reviews of current films they also have music, TV and book features. One of my favorite features is: Commentary Tracks of the Damned which reviews the commentary on the worst dvd releases instead of the film!

BAMBOO GODS AND BIONIC BOYS If you have any interest at all in Filipino schlock cinema there's only one person to go to: Andrew Leavold. His love for Filipino cinema is palpable. Andrew even made a documentary on pint-sized Filipino star Weng Weng ("For Your Height Only") called "The Search for Weng Weng" (!)

JIM BLANCHARD Talented and twisted artist who worked on the underground comic HATE (along with ANSWER ME, BAD MEAT, album covers & more). Check out his cool art. It seems like everyone has a damn blog these days and Jim is no exception.


HYSTERIA LIVES! Well done tribute site for slasher films. Mostly highlighting the 80's boom of blood and gore. Plus interviews with obscure genre players.

JASON LIEBIG STUFF Great high quality collection of advertising and packaging scans/photos. Mostly vintage candy, cereal and food stuff. Plus: Be sure to visit his shockingly thorough site devoted to "wish book" store catalogs from the 30's up to the late '80's - WishBook

LANCE LAURIE Check out this cool artwork that really looks like vintage carnival style display signs. Like a fever dream after too much junk food from the Drive-In snack bar of your childhood. Paintings filled with rampaging robots, grinning devils, sexy mermaids and skull monsters! You can browse the art via his flickr stream or buy select pieces on Ebay (search for seller name: "konga5")

LILEKS James Lileks has a few recommended books out ("Interior Desecration" "Gallery of Regrettable Food"). But his website is a constantly growing treasure trove of pop culture, old advertising, photos and with his dead-on sense of humor.  Hilarious.

MAGIC CARPET BURN Another fun blog. This one has lots of old comic book scans (mostly of the horror variety) including those great back page ads.

MADE FOR TV MAYHEM Great source for info on made-for-TV films.

SECRET FUN SPOT Remember those old ads in the back of comic books for X-Ray specs, life-size monsters and hand buzzers? Well, web creator / director Kirk Demarais does! That plus a whole lot of pop / junk culture. This might be the coolest site you've ever seen.

SHOCK CINEMA MAGAZINE Essential cult film magazine that reviews every damn weird film known to man! Steve Puchalski is to blame. Check out film reviews, catch up on back issues and pick up Steve's book SLIMETIME.  A personal fave and a Must Have! The new issue (#55) is out: Plenty of obscure film folks are interviewed in this issue include: cult fave Sybil Danning (Panther Squad, French Pussycat), John Schuck (M.A.S.H., Hammersmith is Out), Monte Markham and Catherine Mary Stewart (Night of the Comet, Riding the Edge). Reviews include: E. Nick: A Legend in His Own Mind, Mean Dog Blues, Date With Death, Clay Pigeon, R.P.M., Two Women in Gold and more! New release, dvds, zines, books. Steve has also has a Shock Cinema Blog, a YouTube channel and an Instagram account with old newspaper film ads.


TEMPLE OF SCHLOCK Film fanatic Chris Poggiali's great blog has lots of info, pictures and (best of all) tons and tons of rare ad mats related to exploitation cinema.

THEATER OF GUTS Here's a blog with obscure cult film reviews worth checking out! The blogmeister digs up some pretty rare ads, posters and vhs art that I've never seen before. He even sells cool buttons with genre film images and vhs related artwork! Last but not least he makes fan trailers for movies like Fauzi Mansur's Ritual of Death.

Theater of Guts

TICK TOCK TOYS Over at author and artist Dan Goodsell has put together a fantastic collection of old ads, toys, photos and artwork. Tons of cool stuff to see. Check out Dan's great book "Krazy Kid's Food" too!

TOMB IT MAY CONCERN Tons of cool stuff on this film blog.

WFMU Straight outta Jersey - The coolest radio station around - period. If you want to hear the best garage rock (new and old) DO NOT MISS Bill Kelly's "Teenage Wasteland" on Sundays from 3:00pm - 5:00pm Eastern. Listen live or explore the archives - you can listen to the past 4 years (!) or so of shows! Amazing.
