The Bloodiest Thing That Ever Happened In Front Of A Camera: Conservative Politics, 'Porno Chic' and Snuff

Marc Notes: In the early 1970s, outrageous claims were made of a new blood-spattered cinematic extreme. This was the legend of the 'snuff movie', which promoted the inhuman notion that a woman had been murdered to satisfy the sexual appetite of a jaded public. This book is the true, startling and hideously exploitative history of that legend and how it was created. Review Quotes: "This is an absorbing mix of true crime, sociology, and media studies. Many will find it especially captivating considering the current interest in and controversy over horror films and other images of and actual acts of violence in the culture." Amazon review of Milligen's Better To Reign In Hell. Review Quotes: "Better To Reign In Hell is an intelligent, sociological look at American politics that forces the reader to reappraise landmark organisations. Its extensive footnotes and index also make it a useful reference point." Carol Anne Davis, author of Children Who Kill.
