This film anthology contains authors and critics as diverse as John Waters, Camille Paglia, Martin Amis and Poppy Z. Brite. Topics covered include an investigation and celebration of screen violence, putting readers and viewers at the heart of the on-going wide-ranging debate on its nature and effects. Readers can find out why John Waters loves violence and why Camille Paglia loves corpses. Martin Amis writes about the new breed of natural-bred killers, and the latest instalment of the dispute between John Grisham and Oliver Stone is presented. Karl French is co-author (with Sean French) of "The French Brothers' Film Quiz Book" and "The Collected Marx Brothers' Screenplays".
