"Your Netflix queue just got way more devil-horned with this handy compendium of 666 horror movies, grind-house sci-fi flicks, tawdry thrillers, and extra-loud docs. Now you’ll know which Dario Argento bleeder or Rob Zombie creeper will provide the most headbanging fun."—Entertainment Weekly

"Ties together the many shared bonds between extreme music and extreme cinema with as much authority as a Slayer riff and more eye-popping graphics than a stack of Iron Maiden LPs."— VH1

"McPadden’s exhaustive and highly entertaining book revels in the blood, boobs, and beasts of the most lurid flicks in the history of forever."—VICE/Noisey

“Heavy metal is a genre about attitude, riffs and style. This book has all that and more.”—The Seattle Times

“Crosses the line from ‘informative,’ tramples well past ‘definitive,’ and hammers happily into the realm that we shall dub ‘leviathan…’ an homage to the golden era of film books, when it was basically impossible to see these features, and so lovingly curated tomes like this were maps to a foreign land.”—The Austin Chronicle

“Even the most extreme movie enthusiast will find something in this book to learn from, and more importantly, a cultural definition of the ‘heavy metal movie’ has been permanently hatched from the bowels of hell… this is the last word on its subject, and will remain so.”—Fangoria (3.5/4 review)

“With Heavy Metal Movies, an encyclopedic, irreverent and hugely entertaining compendium of ‘guitar barbarians, mutant bimbos and cult zombies amok in the 666 most ear and eye-ripping big-scream films ever!’, [Bazillion Points] have hit the bullseye once more.”—Classic Rock

“Entertaining… A book for metal heads and film buffs alike.”—Joel McIver, Record Collector Magazine (4/5 review)

"Pure poetry."—Decibel

"Fantastic fun"—Terrorizer

"Relentlessly entertaining."—Music Connection

""Just kick back and enjoy."—Goldmine Magazine

"Heavy Metal Movies will forever be the final word in its field."—Metal Injection

"Crucially, the reader doesn't even have to be into metal to get a kick out of McPadden's love of heart-in-mouth, tongue-in-cheek and guts-on-the-wall gems… this is exactly what you should be doing with your time."—RTÉ (5/5 review)

"Despite the alpha-numeric organization of McPadden’s book, a story emerges. There’s a hunger in his writing, and reading each entry is like following a trail of breadcrumbs, all of it leading toward something weirder, wilder, and more fun than what came before. If metal is music’s loudest voice against oppression, then surely McPadden is the loudest for obsession."—Popmatters (9/10 review)

"Both groundbreaking and energetically written, it is one of the most important publications on the reciprocity between popular culture and cinema written in recent years, and inarguably solidifies as McPadden as the authority on the subject."—Film International

"All of the big, obvious choices are covered here but where the book really wins is in its reviews of relative obscurities. McPadden includes a wealth of under-seen exploitation and concert flicks, stretching from forgotten, foreign sci-fi films of the VHS era to recent low-budget indies that flew under the radar. McPadden writes about these films not only with a sense of humor but with authority, almost ensuring that you’ll come away from reading his entries on cannibal features and lesbian vampire flicks having learned something."—Under the Radar

"Outta sight! My eyes are still ringing. The coolest. What a rockin' guide for seeking out new movies, and to rediscover old favorites. This book is a culture vulture's dream. Essential reading for every fan of movies, heavy metal, and pop culture. After poring over every page from A to Z, I'm sorry there aren't more letters in the alphabet."—Jeff Krulik, director, Heavy Metal Parking Lot

"McPadden has struck gold with Heavy Metal Movies! Putting film reviews through a hard rock filter, he brings to the fore how genre film and metal are so tightly bound and interwoven—and in ways that might not even be immediately obvious. A must-read!"—Robin Bougie, Cinema Sewer/Graphic Thrills

“Heavy metal and movies go together perfectly—it’s about damn time somebody dedicated a book to the two! Thank you, Mike McPadden, for answering our headbanging, metal horns-raising, VHS-watching, prayers!”—Richard Christy, Death/Howard Stern/Decibel

“A mammoth work of vein-bulging devotion to power, rage, darkness, sweat, and M E T A L on screen!”
—Zack Carlson, author, Destroy All Movies: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film

“Times Square to Big Hair, from one who was there. McBeardo knows his movies and his metal. Adroit, exhaustive and very entertaining.”—Jimmy McDonough, author, The Ghastly One, Tammy Wynette: Tragic Country Queen and Shakey: Neil Young’s Biography

"An essential reference guide to metal movies, written with equal doses of smart assed-ness and pop-cultural acuity. McPadden plumbs deeper than fashion and stereotypes to excavate the power of heavy metal in both its purest and most metaphoric forms."-Kier-La Janisse, author, House of Psychotic Women: An Autobiographical Topography of Female Neurosis in Horror and Exploitation Films

"This entertaining book makes me want to see ALL of these movies -- and I'm not even a Metal fan!"—Peter Bagge, cartoonist, Hate/Apocalypse Nerd

Heavy Metal Movies is the head banging-est, ear bleeding-est tribute to the world’s two finest inventions: heavy metal and the movies!”—John Fasano, director, Zombie Nightmare/Black Roses/Rock ‘N Roll Nightmare

"An encyclopedic compendium of all things filmic and rocking that will be equally useful for settling bar bets and starting bar fights."—Allan MacDonell, author, Prisoner of X: Twenty Years in the Hole at Hustler Magazine

"Heavy Metal Movies is very funny, legitimately weird, occasionally disturbing and oftentimes breathtaking, a lot like heavy metal itself. When a film guide sends you scrambling to watch a movie every five to ten pages, it is a very, very good film guide. Heavy Metal Movies did that for me on almost every other page. This is the Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film for all movies heavy metal and metal in spirit. It should have a permanent place on your bookshelf."—Dan Budnik, co-author, Bleeding Skull!: A 1980s Trash Horror Odyssey

"Mike McPadden is like Pauline Kael with a dick, Roger Ebert with a jaw, and James Agee with a mohawk—all rolled in one."—Josh Alan Friedman, author, Tales of Times Square; I, Goldstein; and Black Cracker

"The only way this book could be any more hard hitting, is if I took it and slapped you in the face with it. This divine sacrifice is carved up for your enjoyment as tribute to the rock 'n roll filmmakers that inspired it."—BJ Colangelo, Day of the Woman/Icons of Fright

"McPadden's scope and intellect in HMM is part Rhodes Scholar, part cinema nerd, and full on metalhead. The care and passion put into each entry shows an abiding love of the subject matter. If only there was a word that trumps 'definitive,' this book is most certainly that!" -Kristy Jett, HorrorHound Magazine

"Oh Lord and Master SATAN! Tonight we sacrifice this baby in your name to thank you for bringing us Mike McPadden's Heavy Metal Movies! For it is a mighty beacon of darkness in a weak and pathetic cinematic world filled with repugnant rom-coms and loathsome feel-good-movies and PG-13 phony horror remakes. Hail Satan, and hail Mike McPadden!"-Johnny Ryan, Prison Pit


Heavy metal and high-thrill cinema have been joined together like mutant twins since before the band Black Sabbath adopted the name of a chilling Italian horror film. The unadulterated journey of Heavy Metal Movies spans concert movies and trippy midnight flicks, inspirational depictions of ancient times and future apocalypses, and raw handheld digital video obsessions. As brash, irreverent, and visceral as both the music and the movies themselves, Heavy Metal Movies is the ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience.

Exploding with way over 666 true headbanger classics—raging with disturbing documentaries, bulging barbarians, Satanic shockers, spluttery slashers, post-nuke dystopias, carnivorous chunk-blowers, undead gut-munchers, midnight mind-benders, concert films, killer cameos—plus witches, werewolves, bikers, aliens, lesbian vampires, and vengeful vikings galore...the heaviest sin-ematic sensations of all time!

HASH(0x9654d5a0) von 5 Sternen "He Who Walks Behind The Rows" gives it two thumbs up. 4. Juli 2015
Von Billy Pilgrim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
McPadden really pulled it off in this book. I loved his previous project "If you Like Metallica..." which I read front to back in one sitting. He is at once a wordsmith and a font of knowledge on all things heavy metal and film, with a particularly unique and refreshing appreciation for some more absurd works. The book itself is gorgeous inside and out--I've got it on my coffee table. It is undoubtedly, and purposely, filled with many corny movies among the 666 touched on in the book, so I thought I might include a bit on 1984 horror film "Children of the Corn." McPadden writes of the famous antagonists Isaac and Malachi "Thanks to these two icons, 'Children of the Corn' remains an object of profound horror-metal affection. Isaac is a pint-size Elmer Gantry-cum-Jim Jones bedecked in Amish wear. John Franklin, who seems born to play the part, looks like a third-grader and a retirement-home grouch all at once, and he mesmerizes his flock and viewers at home when he preaches prophecies regarding the righteousness of spilling "outlander" blood. Malachi is Isaac's tall, gangly, bucktoothed enforcer with long red hair and a threatening way with a scythe...Truly, this is one gruesome twosome. Isaac brings the heavy; Malachi is all metal. 'Outlander! Outlander! We have your woman!' shouts Malachi, one of the great quotations of Heavy Metal Movies..."

Von Nadine M. Scala - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This was a Christmas gift for my husband, who is both a die-hard metal fan and movie fanatic. He was pleasantly surprised that he hadn't even heard of many of these movies, and then proceeded to search for them on Netflix and Amazon to view in the future.

Von chucky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just received my book today and at just a glance, I have to give it 5 stars! This book reminds me of the book released in 1998 called VIDEO HOUNDS HORROR SHOW! This book is about the same size as that one was. Not as many pics as VIDEO HOUND, but it will serve as an update to that book! Reviews are funny and informative and overall I would say that Mike McPadden did a really good job! Maybe in 10 years, he can do another update on Horror Pictures!

HASH(0x965521b0) von 5 Sternen Incredible Movie Guide. Belongs on every bookshelf and/or nightstand. 19. Juni 2014
Von John B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fine companion volume to DESTROY ALL MOVIES: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO PUNKS IN FILM... McPadden covers every genre of movie here, though there's obviously an emphasis on Horror and SciFi since those types of films tend to be, well, Metal. I can't recommend this guide highly enough. It's ridiculously addictive and extremely well-written.

HASH(0x965550d8) von 5 Sternen Great book! Must have for metal heads and movie ... 8. Oktober 2014
Von Jacob Forge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Great book! Must have for metal heads and movie dudes. Well written book by a guy, who comes off as that cool older brother or awesome video store clerk, that knows the best movies and music to listen to.
