This interview collection takes us back into the roaring 1980s, when the home video market changed the whole world of film making. For a short time, everything seemed possible, and in a way everything was possible. Shapiro Glickenhaus Entertainment was in the right place at the right time. Although SGE closed its doors in 1995, films like THE EXTERMINATOR, BLACK ROSES, SHAKEDOWN, MOONTRAP, RED SCORPION, NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER II, BASKET CASE II & III, FRANKENHOOKER, MANIAC COP and several others remain cult favorites today. Enlightening interviews with business legends and producers are combined with extended conversations with well-known genre filmmakers. On top of this are the voices of all the key people that marketed and sold the SGE movies to the world, managed the productions, or ran the office during this fast forward period of maverick film making. Neither Jim Glickenhaus nor Leonard Shapiro have ever opened up this much about their fantastic careers in the film industry.
