Hey guys, I wrote the book, and I run the site and YouTube channel too, my name's Rob Hill. I check in here to read but I'm not much of a poster.

I just felt compelled to say the book isn't connected to The Asylum! My publisher is a regular little operation. I'm a film critic and lifelong fan of good bad movies (sincere ones, not so much The Asylum) and just wanted to try and open this world up to mainstream moviegoers a little bit. The book features some talk about how and why stuff like Samurai Cop is so funny, but mainly it looks at 101 of the best good bad movies. They're largely genre movies from the 70s, 80s and 90s (most, but hopefully not all, of which guys like you will probably know) + obvious oddities like Breen & The Room. I had to throw a couple of mainstream things like Batman & Robin in for commercial reasons, but there ended up being a pretty good selection, I think. There are also some interviews and so on (it was Empire of the Ants I spoke to Joan Collins for. She called it the worst experience of her life and denied ever having seen it).

As a film writer with a book in the works I have a question: did you pitch to the publisher directly or go through an agent?

This is my third book and I've never had an agent, but my wife is an editor in the publishing industry so I kind of had an 'in' when pitching ideas. Didn't help get anything approved but it probably helped get the idea in front of someone who could actually do the approving. Good luck!

And thanks to everyone for the positive comments! I mention this forum in the book actually. I wanted to see as much as possible during the research phase and I was reaching out in all directions for suggestions. Can't remember which now, but I know a couple of final entries resulted from recommendations made here.

One of the things I love about the bad movie scene is these things are often obscure and word spreads slowly from 'Patient X' a bit like a disease. When you stumble on something great you haven't seen discussed before it feels like you've unearthed a treasure you can share with people! (A couple of great oddities I found too late for the book are William Shatner's Groom Lake and, just last week, Uri Geller's biopic, Mindbender. There are videos from both on my website badmoviebible.com and the YouTube channel.)

Bah, you mentioned Shatner. Now I have an urge to watch Kingdom of the Spiders again.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
