This collection is not for kids. It's for adults who've been scarred by the likes of Return to Oz, Troll 2, Mac and Me, Time Bandits, etc, and are generally fascinated by bad-great films made for children but appealing to no one. Our writers and artists cover all the '80s childhood classics, plus a few contemporary gems.
Great gift for anyone celebrating a birthday or needing a break from watching Twilight and Hannah Montana with their own offspring.
