This beautifully constructed resource displays each film in five to ten page chapters that include the original poster art, production credits, stunning film stills (in color when available), and an essay on the film's importance to the genre...De Forest takes exquisite care in presenting this list as a master guide to the enduring popularity of SF in the film industry.

"It's a bold move to call your movie guide "Must-See." You'd have to be pretty confident that every film mentioned from cover to cover is truly worthy of the moniker. Well, Sloan De Forest has nothing to worry about here, as Turner Classic Movies: Must-See Sci-Fi is a worthwhile trip through the history of science fiction, with b-movies, true game-changers, and underappreciated entries alike featured....This is the perfect book not only to introduce new viewers to some sci-fi classics of old but a tome that any sci-fi historian or film historian should have on the shelf."
