- Despite its exceedingly poor theatrical and critical consensus during its 1995 release, Showgirls generated over $100M in the home video market and is one of MGM’s top 20 all-time sellers. Consistently rated one of the worst films ever made, it is a cult classic which Rolling Stone called “The Greatest Stripper Movie Ever Made”.

- When it was originally released in 2014, It Doesn’t Suck received wide acclaim from such publications as Las Vegas Weekly, The A.V. Club, Slate, and Paste Magazine.

- Adam Nayman regularly tweets to his 4.3K followers. Showgirls is available to rent/buy on iTunes, and Amazon.

- We are releasing this revised version of our 1st book in the series timed with the 10th installment.

- At Winter Institute, independent booksellers in the U.S. expressed enthusiasm about ECW’s Pop Classics series, especially its aesthetics for display in their stores.
