Praise

Advance Praise for Killer Instinct:

"This lean, mean, scabrously honest account of the making of Natural Born Killers amply proves the truism that moviemaking is a ‘controlled accident’. . . . Rarely has a book by a Hollywood player . . . been so confessional and recklessly revealing. . . . This compelling look behind the curtain should help dispel forever any fond illusions about the ‘magic’ of movies."
–Kirkus Reviews

"Few books capture the roller-coaster ride of trying to get a movie made as enjoyably as this one."
–Roger Avary, cowriter, Pulp Fiction

"Fast, funny and horrifically honest, this is Hollywood from the locusts’ point of view, shot through a jeweled and compounded eye. . . . A terrific book."
–Alan Moore, author, The Watchmen and V for Vendetta

"Drugs! Sex! Madness! Movie Stars! Killer Instinct is a screamingly funny, seriously terrifying saga of two naifs who outfox the psychotic dons who run the film business. . . . With this book, Jane Hamsher elevates the Hollywood tell-all to a literary art form."
–Jerry Stahl, author, Permanent Midnight

"Fax and copy machines are working overtime in Hollywood with galleys of Killer Instinct. . . . Gossipy . . . [and] filled with wicked wit. . . . Hamsher’s gonzo take on NBK‘s evolution offers an insider’s view of show-biz egos."
–Time
