FOREWORD by FRANK TURNER
What is The Forgotten Film Club?
The FFC is a journey through unseen, unloved and unremembered movies.
An ongoing series of books exploring films forgotten by society.
This is not an exercise in kitsch and not a hilarious plan to 'out' films which have dated badly. It's about finding and exploring films which attempted to, but ultimately did not, make a mark on the mainstream. Taking a look at them critically and philosophically, talking to people involved in their production and having a think about their place in the world now.
Each book deals exclusively with just one film. A forgotten film. Maybe it'll be a diamond in the rough, an overlooked masterpiece or just a film which ultimately didn't work but had a great story behind it.
Basically, if you love films and are fascinated by how they get made and what happens to them once they're released, you should join the club.
The first book in the series explores the film MORONS FROM OUTER SPACE, a forgotten British sci-fi comedy vehicle for comedians Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones, directed by legendary film director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, Flash Gordon, The Croupier)
