Guilty Pleasures. B-

I've got to admit, I feel a little randy after watching this trailer for Witch Fire by Anya Bast. Sure, it's just text and music (with a nice closeup of the witch's cleave) but I have a feeling this is the type of book that you'd blush while reading it on the subway.
The Final Word: If you like supernatural erotica and have a rich imagination, buy it. But if you're like me, wait for the soft porn version on Skinamax.

When you feel like going to a rave. F

This trailer for Light at the Edge of of Darkness, the short story collection edited by Cynthia MacKinnon is so hideously bad that I now understand why so few people read short stories these days. However, the techno music they used for the soundtrack is perfect if you're getting ready to hit that rave tonight.
The Final Word: Wait for the soundtrack.

Orphans! Mayhem! Terror! A+

First Second Books released this incredibly stylistic trailer for The Black Diamond Detective Agency by Eddie Campbell. The graphic novel adapted from a screenplay by C. Gabe Mitchell lends itself incredibly well, which coupled with high production level V.O. and sound fx, results in a highly compelling trailer.

The Final Word: makes me want to buy it.
