My Favorite Horror Movie is now available on Amazon via Black Vortex Cinema. It’s a collection of essays and nostalgic retrospectives from some of the genre’s most prolific and respected writers (including Horror Freak News’ own Michael Klug); the subject—that should be self-explanatory!
From last week’s press release:
Produced and edited by horror filmmaker Christian Ackerman (Bethany/Death House/Slayer: You Against You), the book is a ghoulish celebration of how the singular viewing of a horror film can inspire someone to find their identity and develop an obsession with the dark side of arts.
Featuring legends of horror with some of the most prolific and unique new voices in the genre including Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp/Victor Crowley), Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever/Stuck In The Middle), Tony Timpone (Fangoria), Jeffrey Reddick (Final Destination), Graham Skipper (Sequence Break/Tales of Halloween), Rolfe Kanefsky (There’s Nothing Out There/The Black Room), Dave Parker (Tales of Halloween/The Hills Run Red), Ryan Lambert (Monster Squad), and Michael Gingold (Fangoria), My Favorite Horror Movie is an intimate glimpse into the development of their horror-obsessed minds!
“I’m ecstatic by the response for the book so far,” says Ackerman. “It turned out to be a beautiful testament to the positive power that horror films have on us as humans.”
Featuring contributions from filmmakers, actors, writers, directors, painters, musicians, journalists and film festival directors, the essays in My Favorite Horror Movie celebrate classic films from the likes of George Romero, John Carpenter, Sam Raimi, Tobe Hooper, Dan O’Bannon, Wes Craven, Alfred Hitchcock, and many more!
Official Synopsis: The lights go down. 90 minutes from now, your feeble mind will never be the same.
