One of the horror genre's "most widely read critics" (Rue Morgue # 68), "an accomplished film journalist" (Comic Buyer's Guide #1535), and the award-winning author of Horror Films of the 1980s (2007), The Rock and Roll Film Encyclopedia (2007) and Horror Films of the 1970s (2002), John Kenneth Muir, presents his blog on film, television and nostalgia, named one of the Top 100 Film Studies Blog on the Net.
"...John Kenneth Muir draws a genealogical relationship between the lauded mockumentary and the comic philosophy that arose in a specific context: America on the Watergate era of the late 1970s...Muir's book presents copious Tap trivia, most of which has yet to be warmed over on the internet (score one point for print)." - The Bohemian.com.
"In this entry in the Music on Film series John Kenneth Muir tracks the history, creation and legacy of one of the most hilarious films of all time. This book definitely goes to 11." - TheatreBooks.com.
"Muir's writing is informative and engaging. Although it's obvious that he's a fan of the film, he tries to maintain a certain distance from the subject by relying heavily on interviews and quotes rather than resorting to personal gushings." - The Admiral's Corner.
