It isn’t every film that features man-eating zombie sushi. But for those searching for just that and more strange
things in their viewing queue, this film guide is for you. Organized by genre, including comedy, horror, action,
drama, fantasy, and sci-fi, this title offers 300 reviews of genre films from all over the world, 160 photos, and
exclusive interviews and quotes from the people behind some of the most offbeat films ever made. Alongside this
curated list of viewing recommendations, longtime fans and new comers to strange cinema gain bits of fun and
informative trivia. For example, David Caruso’s film debut was
Without Warning
(1980), a carefree trip into the
woods thwarted by killer flying alien discs. Lurking in these so-bad-they’re-good-films, you’ll find other familiar
actors likeDavidCarradine, James Brolin, Martin Landau, andRyanGosling in films like
Death Race 2,000
(1975),
The Car
(1977),
The Being
(1983), and
Lost River
(2014).The zombie sushi, by the way, is from
Dead Sushi
(2012).

The Painter’s Wedding:
Inspired Celebrations with an Artistic Edge
Kristy Rice
• For modern couples looking to dream beyond DIY to infuse big meaning into their day
• Goes beyond the done-before content of wedding design into the realm of fine art
• Inspiration for artists, budding designers, photographers, and couples burned out on conventional wedding decor
Many couples devour beautiful images in their desire to infuse meaning and memory into their wedding
celebration, but they don’t have the tools they need to translate the ideas. Award-winning stationery designer,
painter, and stylist Kristy Rice, consultant to celebrities, bridges the gap between how to dreamyour wedding
and how to do your wedding. She works inspiration from iconic artists like Monet, Hopper, Dali, O’Keeffe,
and Wyeth into stunning scenery, historic estates, gardens, materials, and color compositions. Sixteen
chapters of painterly ideas come alive with commentary from some of the world’s most respected wedding
professionals, such as Abby Larson of
Style Me Pretty
, MindyWeiss, and fine art photographer Jose Villa. Her
approach fosters lessons that will be used beyond the big day to style a life and home.
Kristy Rice
wears many hats: entrepreneur, mama, author, celebrity invitation designer, and stylist, but
her first love is painting.
