'What are movies, after all, but words & pictures? Like a big comic? So what better way to approach film criticism than an actual comic? The incomparable genius Rick Trembles has done just that. You've got be a serious movie fan to digest this stuff. Trembles certainly is.'
- Screw magazine
'Spot-on and very necessary. Trembles covers everything from blockbuster movies through to arthouse favourites and underground obscurities. You might even learn something.'
'Rick Trembles is like a punk-rock Leonard Maltin.'
- Fishpiss magazine
'Clearly the work of a deranged genius - film reviews for psychos.'
'Local lurid dilettante, commanding comix captain and preposterously prehistorical post-punk band big-gun Rick Trembles has published a comic book compendium that will immerse you in the concentrated assuredness and artistry with which Trembles works his foul fantasies!'
- Hour (Montreal)
'Rick combines his seemingly endless knowledge of all kinds of film, from the most obscure to the most mainstream, with his signature artistic style. You've never seen anything like this before. This is a great book.'
- Creature Corner
'There are comic artists, there are movie critics, and then there's Rick Trembles, who's had the genius idea of combining the two to form his own personal dark art. Trembles' strips are a joy to read and invariably more interesting than the movies that inspired them.'
- The Guardian
