It's Alive! The Science of B-Movie Monsters

Author: 

Michael LaBarbera

This is a solid piece of science writing masquerading as movie reviews. It is a lot of fun to read, and you'll learn some biomechanics along the way. However, you may never look at movie monsters in quite the same way again.

Favorite Thing: 
The way the author speculates on how the movies' premises could be reconciled with the laws of physics.
