Andy Milligan, perhaps the most compelling lone wolf in cinema history, gets his due in this definitive work. A dressmaker, actor and puppeteer, Milligan cranked out titles like Bloodthirsty Butchers, The Body Beneath, and The Rats are Coming! The Werewolves are Here! on threadbare budgets. Due to their many limitations, his movies made Milligan the laughingstock of the film industry. Author Jimmy McDonough changed all that by providing the necessary context and pathos, allowing these chaotic yet highly personal movies (and their creator) to be seen in a new and sympathetic light.
This book serves as a history of not only the shadowy New York City sexploitation business, but also of the Caffe Cino -- a tiny, explosive storefront café many consider to be the beginning of Off-Off Broadway theatre in America. Starring a cast of unforgettable, elusive characters, the gripping narrative of THE GHASTLY ONE turns grimly personal, and it’s told with unflinching honesty by biographer and journalist Jimmy McDonough. Jimmy has revised the text for this extraordinary new coffee table art book edition, which is packed full of rare images and memorabilia.
