Book Review: Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art

Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art - 01


Crazy 4 Cult is a cult movie art collection, featuring art from Gallery 1988, a Los Angeles art gallery opened in 2004 that focuses on pop-culture themed artwork.

It's a 176-page hardcover published by Titan Books.

The movies included are limited to just cult movies, depending on how you define cult. Some of them are Clerks, The Big Lebowski, Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Darko, The Shining, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory etc. Some titles are really obscure.

The art is essentially fan art, a collection a paintings and a few handmade figures. Some ideas are nice, some average. There's a variety of interesting style but overall, there's a strong lowbrow art feel to the book. Can't say that it's the style of art I like.

This book reminds me of Star Wars Art: Visions which is also sort of a cult movie book, but their selection is more refined, and quality is higher. By the way, there's no Star Wars art in Crazy 4 Cult except for some characters that appear as only as cameo.

This book is probably a fan service. I think you need to be a strong cult movie fan (who also likes art) to appreciate.

Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository

Thank you for the great

Thank you for the great review and the photos of the book. Quick question, does the book contain the Tom Whalen print from the movie "UHF"? I haven't seen it in any flip through videos or photos so I figured I'd ask :) Thanks!
