If you like Reel Shame, be sure to check out the new print publication from Stomp Tokyo, B-Movies Quarterly. This new magazine has loads of fun stuff for independent film fans and aspiring filmmakers, including retrospectives, celebrity interviews, how-to articles, and more! Best of all, it's dirt cheap at two bucks a copy. Check it out!

It seems as if Reel Shame has been selling so well at Amazon that they have run out of copies faster than we could resupply them. Although a box of books left this morning via Priority Mail for Amazon's warehouse, they currently list the book as out of stock and unlikely to arrive by Xmas.
If you would like to guarantee a copy of the book for someone on your gift list this holiday, we can have one in your hands, no problem. Just choose one of the three following purchase methods:
• Our online store
(please choose first class shipping, not the free shipping offer)
• Amazon's "Marketplace" listing:
go to http://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN/0971835608/stomptokyo
then click "Used & New" on the right-hand side
(please use "expedited shipping")
• Half.com listing:
(please use "expedited shipping")
With the First Class or Expedited shipping, all orders placed by the 20th should arrive in time for Xmas. (We can't guarantee the exact performance of the US Postal Service, but four days should be time enough.)
Thanks for your interest in Reel Shame, and we hope your holidays are pleasant ones.
Authors, REEL SHAME: BAD MOVIES AND THE HOLLYWOOD STARS WHO MADE THEM
Cineschlock-O-Rama gives high marks to Reel Shame
G. Noel Gross, Cineschlock-O-Rama columnist for DVDTalk.com, has words of high praise for our little book, and it makes us blush with pride to read them.
. . . an excellent addition to the libraries of discerning fringe cinema fans. The Stomp Tokyo duo probe the significance of such schlock classics as Embrace of the Vampire, Barb Wire and Shakes the Clown -- as well as the alleged celebs who made them -- with uncanny wit and time-hewn expertise through a series of essays and sidebars sure to tickle any CineSchlocker.
Read the entire review!

Reel Shame makes a great gift
So says the St. Petersburg Times in their annual book lovers gift guide.
For folks who like more Flashdance than Sundance in their movies (or who enjoy a good chuckle at movie stars' early, unfortunate choices), pick up Reel Shame: Bad Movies and the Hollywood Stars Who Made Them (Stomp Tokyo, $14.99, 208 pp) by Christopher Holland and Scott Hamilton, creators of the acclaimed movie Web site stomptokyo.com.

The Foolproof Five
The East Bay Express listed Reel Shame as one of its "Foolproof Five" gift books this season.
If there's going to be a book about horrible movies and the big Hollywood stars who appeared in them (check out Diane Ladd in Carnosaur and Henry Fonda in Tentacles), it had better be funny, and this one is.
Check out the other books at the EBE web site.
Shock Cinema loves Reel Shame!
In issue 21 of Shock Cinema magazine, editor Steven Puchalski writes of Reel Shame: "...these guys have suffered through a lot of lousy movies, and their criticism is sharply-written, often vicious and funny as hell."
Thanks Steven! And we're sorry about that mistake in the "Recommended Reading" section – we'll get it fixed in the next printing.
