Coming this Fall from Midnight Marquee Press (www.midmar.com), CHRIS ALEXANDER’S BLOOD SPATTERED BOOK!
The tome is a collection of wild, funny, passionate and dramatic musings on genre films (primarily horror, of course) that I love and that have been forgotten, ignored or, more often than not, slipped through the collective pop culture radar entirely. Some essays have been expanded from entries in my popular online column at www.fangoria.com and many are brand new.
Films covered include ALICE, SWEET ALICE, ANTHROPOPHAGUS, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, LAIR OF THE WHITE WORM, COUNT DRACULA’S GREAT LOVE, THE SENTINEL, LIFEFORCE, THE DEVIL’S NIGHTMARE, DEMON SEED, RAVENOUS, LAND OF THE MINOTAUR, NOMADS, ANGEL HEART, PSYCHOMANIA and many, many more.
Accompanying these essays are a staggering collection of new interviews with such iconic film figures as Mickey Rourke, Richard Matheson, Amanda Donohoe, Michael Winner, Tobe Hooper, Roger Corman, Fabio Frizzi, Mark Damon and Stephen Rea to name just a few.
Fleshed out with dozens of rare stills, CHRIS ALEXANDER’S BLOOD SPATTERED BOOK is a love letter to “movies that refuse to behave” and is a must read for insomniac retro horror and eccentric cinema enthuisiasts everywhere!
Stay tuned for further details as I get them…
