World Gone Wild: A Survivor's Guide to Post-Apocalyptic Movies is now the ultimate reference on PA cinema. Written by David J. Moore this mammoth of a book has over 430 pages of reviews and interviews and is lavishly illustrated throughout with an excellent selection of movies posters and stills. The interviews of which there are about sixty with creators and stars of this sub-genre make for some informative and entertaining reading. Highlight interviews include Vernon Wells who portrayed perhaps the most memorable PA villain WEZ from Mad Max 2, Harley Cokeliss director of Battletruck and Richard Norton star of many Cirio H. Santiago PA flicks. This book is a mine of information and I was pleasantly surprised to discover titles of which I was unaware even though I like to think of myself as an aficionado of these types of movies. If you are a fan of post-apocalyptic cinema then do yourself a favor and click on the Amazon link on the right!
