I Lost My Mind in the Movies
Loss of Identity in the Horror Film
Ed. Anthony Ambrogio
I Lost My Mind in the Movies

Fear of the dark, fear of death, fear of the unknown and the unseen. Commentators have analysed at length these terrors of the psyche and how they figure prominently in the horror film. But one particular fear, one particular fate worse than death, which manifests itself time and again, has rarely been discussed in detail or depth. Loss of identity.. You’re Next! examines the ways in which this fundamental terror is visited upon characters in films, providing a fresh perspective on why losing the defining aspects of our lives can be so profoundly frightening...

Splintered Visions (Full Colour Edition)

Splintered Visions (Full Colour Edition)

By Troy Howarth

Most studies of Fulci have focussed only on a small part of his career; Splintered Visions changes that with an in-depth exploration of Fulci’s filmography, beginning with his work as a screenwriter and extending through all of his films as a director. Author Troy Howarth provides a detailed portrait of a complex man through new interviews with actors such as Richard Johnson and Franco Nero, and the end result is the most comprehensive overview of Fulci ever published in English. Splintered Visions is also lavishly illustrated with rare stills, posters and promotional materials.

Large format, 366pp
