A Comprehensive Filmography

About the Book
American International Pictures was in many ways the “missing link” between big-budget Hollywood studios, “poverty-row” B-movie factories and low-rent exploitation movie distributors. AIP first targeted teen audiences with science fiction, horror and fantasy, but soon grew to encompass many genres and demographics—at times, it was indistinguishable from many of the “major” studios.
From Abby to Zontar, this filmography lists more than 800 feature films, television series and TV specials by AIP and its partners and subsidiaries. Special attention is given to American International Television (the TV arm of AIP) and an appendix lists the complete AITV catalog. The author also discusses films produced by founders James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff after they left the company.

Book Reviews & Awards
“This annotated filmography by writer and unabashed AIP fan Craig compiles all the movies produced or distributed by AIP, including, for the first time, those released to television networks. … As the only complete criticism of AIP’s catalog, this work will be invaluable”—Library Journal
