CHECK OUT THIS BOOK!!
Check out the new book from Midnight Marquee Press! It's called YOU'RE NEXT! LOSS OF IDENTITY IN HORROR FILMS and it is a collection of essays exploring the theme of loss of identity in fantasy films including INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, THE INVISIBLE MAN, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, MEMENTO, PSYCHO, etc. I myself, your esteemed Rocket Video manager, contributed over 15 entries to the book including essays on ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE INVISIBLE MAN, ZOMBIES ON BROADWAY, HULK, SHAUN OF THE DEAD, MONSTER AND THE GIRL, KING OF THE ZOMBIES and many more. The rest of the entries are contributed from Midnight Marquee's excellent stable of writers and the whole package is edited by Anthony Ambrogio. The book is illustrated with excellent stills from each film and beautifully packaged in softcover format. It's a steal at only $25.00. The book can be ordered from www.midmar.com or you can purchase it from Rocket Video (copies should be arriving some time next week). If you purchase your copy at Rocket, I'll even sign it for you! But check out the midmar website anyway 'cause they got lots of great stuff!!
By the way, I'll also have copies of my book THE HORROR SPOOFS OF ABBOTT AND COSTELLO available on Saturday, June 19th for sale and signing at our Mummy's day event.
