The artwork found on pulp fiction magazine covers has rankled American sensibilities since before our grandparents' time. Now for the first time on film, Pulp Fiction Art: Cheap Thrills and Painted Nightmares takes an in-depth look at these incredible yet misunderstood works of art; some of which, due to their controversial content, are rarely seen in public today.
These sensational paintings shocked a depression-era public with their raw graphic themes of mystery, horror and scantily-clad damsels in distress. Pulp fiction art is more than simply an American art form; it is a state of mind. Politically incorrect, shocking, offensive and deliciously fun, it is unforgettable.
This DVD documentary program takes you behind the scenes of this forgotten art form with interviews of the artists who created these sinfully entertaining painting and the collectors who have kept it alive.
Winner of the 2006 "Best Documentary" award at both the Dragon*Con Film Festival and The International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival, documentary filmmaker, Jamie McDonald, gained exclusive access to the world's largest pulp art collection - owned by pulp art historian Robert Lesser.
Whether you are a true fan of the art form or a curious newcomer, Pulp Fiction Art: Cheap Thrills and Painted Nightmares will leave you thinking differently about what constitutes art.
