Rausch has published nearly forty books with nearly twenty different publishers. His nonfiction includes multiple books on author Stephen King and screenwriter/director Quentin Tarantino. In 2004, he wrote a book titled Turning Points in Film History (2004) that was used as a textbook in many collegiate film classes. He spent seven years interviewing film directors for his book Fifty Filmmakers: Conversations with Directors from Roger Avary to Steven Zaillian (2008). Some of his key nonfiction titles include The Films of Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro (2010), The Cinematic Misadventures of Ed Wood (2015), and My Best Friend's Birthday: The Making of a Quentin Tarantino Film (2019). Rausch has written on topics as diverse as film, atheism, blaxploitation, and hip-hop music.

Rausch is the co-author of the late cinematographer Gary Graver's memoir Making Movies with Orson Welles. Rausch is the screenwriter of the indie horror film Dahmer Vs. Gacy (2010). His production credits include Dead in Love (2009), Zombiegeddon (2003), and Evil Ever After (2006). He has dismissed these films as being "mostly bad" in a number of podcast interviews.
