The scope and breadth of the knowledge possessed by the Scarecrow Video staff dwarfs my own knowledge of weird, unique, hard to find, classic, essential, and interesting movies. That's why I adore this book so, so much. I can just sit and mark off all the B-movies, action flicks, thrashers, foreign classics, exploitation, and unusual films of all sorts that I must see.
Scarecrow is a legendary video store in Seattle. Honestly, the best movie guide I have ever owned. It is clear they have actually seen all the movies they review whether they be the Steven Segal masterpieces where he plays a Chinese archaeology professor or the a Jodorowsky film with crazy imagery.
They have searched high and low for high and low brow movies and anyone with a love for movies benefits from their obsession.
