"Some of the best|
bizarre film commentary
going... with sharp, no-nonsense verdicts."
- Manohla Dargis,
The Village Voice
"One of the few
review zines you
can actually read
and learn from...
You need this."
- Joe Bob Briggs
"Shock Cinema is like riding the A train in the summer from the George Washington Bridge to the Deuce to see "Bucktown."
This is the only
magazine I can
totally relate to."

INTRODUCTION by MISTER KEYES [a.k.a. Tavis Riker]
Back in the haze of the mid-'80s. Steve Puchalski started SLIMETIME, and recruited some like-minded individuals to contribute reviews of sleazy cinematic fare from the "high minds watching low-brow" viewpoint. I signed in for duty early on, bringing a first person "NYC" spin to my films and venues of choice, and these columns hit the spot on occasion.
Such rarities as Rudy Ray Moore flicks and FOXY BROWN-level blaxploits are now readily rentable at your local Dustbuster Video. But knowing our enthusiasm for digging out these fine artworks at the time led us down some dank corridors, leading to tattered seats in now "renovated" grindhouses on and off The Deuce. Ah, nostalgia. Perhaps not. Laugh at will.
