About this product
- DescriptionBrottman offers a study of movies so offensive, that some are practically unwatchable. From the ever-popular Faces of Death movies to purported snuff films, from classic B-movies such as The Tingler , to more popular but less controversial films such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre , Brottman takes a wide-eyed look at movies most folks watch only through parted fingers. Part anthropology, part psychoanalysis, Offensive Films vivisects these movies in order to figure out just what about them is so offensive, obscene, or bizarre.
