Extrapolation 56.2

The summer 2015 issue of Extrapolation is out and includes an excellent review of my cultography on John Carpenter's They Live, which was published by Columbia University Press earlier this year. Here's the conclusion:

"The book They Live reframes the film They Live through creative, persuasive critique. It makes an elegant case, time after time, for taking this film seriously, as well as cult cinema more broadly. Whereas this review highlights some outstanding features of the book, it has not mentioned the trove of invaluable details Wilson draws from Carpenter's biography and the divergent critics' reviews that have accreted to They Live over the past twenty-seven years."
