Ny horrorbog … af selveste John Landis!!

Dorling Kindersley udgav den tredje oktober bogen Monsters in the Movies: 100 Years of Cinematic Nightmares … en lækker hardbacksag i stor udgave på 320 sider og med over 1000 stills og posters! Det mest interessante ved bogen er dog, at den er skrevet af selveste John Landis, der jo er instruktøren bag den eminente varulveklassiker “An American Werewolf in London” (1981).

Mike Rogers skriver i Library Journal om bogen, at:

As director of An American Werewolf in London and Innocent Blood, Landis is no stranger to horror films. Here, he offers a whirlwind tour of just about everything related to the genre, from the silents to today’s computer-generated imagery.

Typical of DK, the book includes thousands of captioned photos featuring Landis’s commentary on the films. Chapters cover vampires, werewolves, mad scientists, zombies, giant apes, atomic mutations, space monsters, and much more. Subsections spotlight actors like Lon Chaney Jr.—this book is extremely thorough. Landis also provides brief interviews with actor Christopher Lee, directors David Cronenberg, John Carpenter, Guillermo del Toro, and Sam Raimi, makeup master Rick Baker, and legendary stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen, a wonderful bonus.

With tons of cool pics and beautifully reproduced film posters, Landis’s volume knocks it out of the park as a superbrowsable overview of the beasties, ghosties, and ghoulies that have terrified us on the big screen all in the name of fun. Horror fans will love it. Læs mere her: KLIK.
