In the often dreary landscape of Hollywood's blockbuster era, the cinema of Joe Dante has always stood out as a rare beacon of fearless originality. Blending humor with terror and trenchant political satire with sincere tributes to the moviegoing act itself, the "Dante touch" is best described as a free-for-all orgy of movies, memories and mischief. For the first time, this colourful universe―from Hollywood Boulevard to Gremlins to Small Soldiers and beyond―is comprehensively explored in an English language volume featuring a career-encompassing interview, new essays by Michael Almereyda, Jim Hoberman, Christoph Huber, Gabe Klinger, Violeta Kovacsics, Bill Krohn, Dušan Rebolj, John Sayles, and Mark Cotta Vaz, as well as a treasure trove of never-before-seen documents and illustrations.

The pleasure of reading a book such as this lies in its built-in appeal both to fans and newcomers... Absorbing... (Cineaste)
Baskar and Klinger's volume is especially triumphant in light of Joe Dante's continued disreputability within the world of serious film discourse... It can only be hoped that there will be many more publications like it to follow. (Film Matters)
