"LOOSE CANNONS, DANGEROUS CURVES and LEVITATING HOLY SCRIPTURES"
On Cinehound forum Pete Tombs once made the mistake of mentioning that due to a lack of space there was a full chapter that didn't make it to the Mondo Macabro book! A chapter on Lollywood cinema (i.e. Pakistani cinema) written by none other than Omar Khan who directed HELL'S GROUND (aka Zibahkhana). It was a mistake (haha) cos it meant I've kept bugging him on Cinehound ever since to put it out on their blog or website! Unfortunately, for some reason MM hasn't wanted to do so. The chapter was actually included in the Spanish language edition of the MM book. However, ... lo and behold... Omar Khan has just put out what I believe is that chapter as an eBook (or eMag, whatever) for download! Go here. I can't comment on how good it is as I haven't read it yet (and thanks to Jared for the tip).
EDIT (Sep, 2012): Unfortunately, it seems OMAR KHAN is no longer selling his chapter on Lollywood via Lulu.com. I haven't been able to find any other outlets that stock it (or is that "e-stock"?). Maybe he's given up on selling it entirely. Too bad.
