Machinegun-toting buxom wenches, nymphomaniac zombies and plagues of frogs all feature in a forthcoming book celebrating tasteless, movie-poster art. Trash, compiled by Jacques Boyreau, features a selection of the gaudiest and sleaziest ‘Xploitation’ posters from the 1950s to the 1980s. More than 150 warped masterpieces depicting all manner of violence, explosions, escapism and horror are included to whet the appetite of the most jaded B-movie junkie. Among the films covered are distinguished classics such as Dracula’s Dog, Hell’s Belles, Son of Blob and Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory. The book, priced £14.99, is published by Chronicle Books and will be available in August.
