I have read a lot of bad reviews for this, and I don't see it as being bad at all. This covers the 80's and 90's video store period when there were tons of stores all across the USA.
The need for product to fill the shelves was great and it opened up the doors for a lot of independent film makers to make their low budget films and have an outlet for them.
These stories are told by such people as Fred Olen Ray, Kelly Maronie, Clint Howard, Lloyd Kaufman, Jim Wynorski, Brinke Stevens and many, many more.
The only problem I saw was the fact that a lot of the movies weren't identified and suddenly some of these people would be talking about a movie from out of the blue. True horror fans would know what they were, but people who are not huge fans will be kind of confused.
I did enjoy this as it took me back to a time when I was making the very same kind of movies, and yes, I did help fill the shelves of various video stores. Good times indeed.
