Mr. Satanism about this book: One of the most overlooked and neglected of film sub-genres -- the Lifetime Original Movie -- finally gets its due. Infamous Internet film critic Mr. Satanism reviews nearly 100 of these tele-fims, all from a male perspective, and filtered through his usual jaded, misanthropic eye you'll finally have all the ammo you need to get your girl to avoid cinematic atrocities with titles like "Baby Monitor: Sound of Fear" or "Wedding Daze" and watch "Die Hard 5" instead. Even better, you'll learn which Lifetime-style flicks feature enough hot has-been actresses, ridiculous violence, and hilariously insane plot twists to actually be worth watching when she does take control of the remote. Stop arguing over which movie to watch and then not getting any. It's time to take back movie-date night, and buying this essential guide is the first step in that direction. And, best of all, it's hysterically funny. Just don't let your girl read it, or she'll probably brain you with a frying pan.

what to read next: if you read and liked this book...
I used to read this guy's website, and I have his other books, and he's at his best when he's skewering junk horror movies and goofy kung-fu chop-socky movies. This one, which concentrates on chick flicks has some very funny bits and is worth reading, but start with his horror movie books first.
