The official synopsis follows:

“BLEEDING SKULL! A 1980s TRASH HORROR ODYSSEY” is the definitive resource on 1980s trash-horror cinema. “BLEEDING SKULL! “features 300 in-depth reviews of movies that have escaped the radar of people with taste and the tolerance of critics. BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL, A NIGHT TI DISMEMBER, HEAVY METAL MASSACRE, THE LAST SLUMBER PARTY – this book gets deep into gutter-level, no-budget horror, from shot-on-video (SOV) revelations (DOCTOR BLOODBATH) to forgotten theatrical casualties (FROZEN SCREAM). Clown midget slashers! The Indonesian Jason! A pregnant woman in a bikini who eats fried chicken before getting her fetus ripped out by a psychopath! It’s all here. And it’s all curated by the enthusiastic minds behind Bleedingskull.com, the world’s foremost authority on trash-horror obscurities. Jam-packed with rare photographs, advertisements, and VHS sleeves (most of which have never been seen), “BLEEDING SKULL!” is an edifying, laugh-out-loud guide through the dusty inventory of the greatest video store that never existed.
