Sandman Slim's Namedropped Movies

Richard Kadrey's Sandman Slim series of horror noir novels are amongst my personal guilty pleasures, indulging in both cliché hardboiled cynicism, gleefully edgy Satanist play, and epic dark fantasy pulp storytelling and its form is not that great but resembles a modern edge to that fiery material that makes me have a lot of fun with it despite that. On top of which, it's actually a series that resembles my attitudes regarding Los Angeles as a place more than anything else outside of Alex Cox's Repo Man and also on top of which it is clearly the work of a movie buff from the amount of references Kadrey packs and shoves into those books in between L.A. iconography.
