I too own Video Hound's Cult Flicks and Trash Pics. Great book, although I don't agree with some of the reviews. I reccomend it to everyone here.

It's a great book to flip through and find the worst movies ever....usually by reading the titles alone

In the early '90s, I bought practically every horror related book or magazine that I could find. My addiction / obsession knew no ends! From memory, my collection includes:

Deep Red volumes 1 - 6
Deep Red Horror Handbook
Deep Red Alert (sic?)
Deep Red Anniversary
Most of the first 100 or so Fangoria mags, the early Gorezones, the early Headpress and Dark Side magazines from the UK, etc.

I have some great George Romero related books from the early '90s including The Zombies That Ate Pittsburgh. Great book. Also Romero's novel Dawn of the Dead.

I have some great glossy horror books from France and Italy. They're small but very glossy with the most exquisite photographs and are based on such films as Cannibal Holocaust, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Argento, Fulci, etc.

Altogether, with all my Chas Balun books, early guides to horror from the '70s, and so on, I'd hazard a guess that I have around 250 - 500 film guides / movie tie-ins.

Sadly, most of my books are normally boxed up so I rarely have the opportunity to read up on genre subjects.

My spending on movie books has really dropped off in the last decade but I have purchased the beautiful Beyond Terror Fulci book (ltd signed edition) and the Argento hardback (1st version) from Fab Press in the last few years.
