The Psychotronic Documentary

Michael J. Weldon took on the task of cataloging the forgotten gems of cinema. The slightly offbeat, the outlandishly bizarre, the no-budget quickies and the occasional multimillion-dollar box-office smash were lovingly listed within The Psychotronic magazines and books Michael wrote, inspiring Academy Award-winning filmmakers, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist and a multitude of other artists through four generations. All while fans and the famous, including Johnny Ramone, Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson, would visit Michael's movie memorabilia and classic record store in New York's East Village, Psychotronic.

Many have used the term "Psychotronic" since, but only one author gave the word life. Michael J. Weldon's work in Psychotronic magazine, The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, The Psychotronic Video Guide, and on various public appearances at film events, screenings and conferences, gave movie fans a sub-genre to cherish and was the forebearer of other fan favorites like Mystery Science Theater 3000.
