Cult Epics, the video (and later DVD and Blu-ray) label is essentially the brainchild of Dutch filmmaker and former videostore owner Nico B, a label originally started in the Netherlands that gained true fame and notoriety among cult film collectors especially after its move to the US in 1998. At first, it released many of the loops of pin up queen Bettie Page that are still in existence as well as those of many of her contemporaries shot by famed erotica filmmaker Irwing Klaw back in the 1950s, but Cult Epics soon branched out into all sorts of the obscure, from erotica to horror to arthouse to transgressive cinema, (re-)discovering many a cult filmmaker or giving those unappreciated their proper showcases - with some of their films being so rare they're not even covered on this here website yet.

 

This book in question pretty much documents the stock of Cult Epics the label with in-depth reviews of all (?) DVDs and Blu-rays released held together by many an interview and bios of the key filmmakers. The book essentially falls into three sections, arthouse, horror and erotica, with extra coverage given to Fernando Arrabal, Walerian Borowczyk, Jörg Buttgereit, Bettie Page, Tinto Brass, Radley Metzger, and somewhat fittingly to label founder Nico B himself (or rather his cinematic output).

Now one might of course argue this is basically above all else a glossy catalogue for the label itself, and objectively that's of course true - and yet for the self-respecting cult movie collector this is still pretty much a must-have thanks to the sheer wealth of information the book carries. Now sure, the book is picking raisins out of the incredibly diverse world of cult cinema - but with that diverse a topic, that's pretty much true about every book dealing with the subject, so basically the argument is as true as it's invalid. And for lovers of the obscure this is essentially a book to just dive in and enjoy ...
