Summary

BRITISH TRASH CINEMA is the first overview of the wilder shores of British exploitation and cult paracinema from the 1950s onwards. From obscure horror, science fiction and sexploitation, to art-house camp, Hammer's prehistoric fantasies and the worst British films ever made, author I.Q. Hunter draws on rare archival material and new primary research to take us through the weird
and wonderful world of British trash cinema.

Beginning by outlining the definitions of trash films and their place in British film history, Hunter explores topics including: Hammer's overlooked fantasy films, the emergence of the sexploitation film in the 1950s and 60s, the sex industry in the 1970s, Ken Russell's high camp Gothic and erotic adaptations since the 1980s, gross-out comedies, revenge films, and contemporary straight-to-DVD horror and erotica.

Author Biography

I.Q. Hunter is Reader in Film Studies at De Montfort University, Leicester. He is the author of British Science Fiction Cinema (1999), and the co-editor of British Comedy Cinema (2012), Controversial Images (2013) and Science Fiction Across Media: Adaptation/Novelization (2013).
