Psycho: Origins

This brand new ‘Horror Companion’ from Hemlock Books examines the impact on popular culture made by Robert Bloch’s 1959 pulp novel Psycho, from its genesis in murders committed by Wisconsin farmer and serial killer Ed Gein through the seminal 1960 film adaptation by Alfred Hitchcock to the ‘psycho-thrillers’ of companies like Hammer. Psycho brought Gothic horror into the modern age and its effects are still being felt in the genre today.

Tigon: Blood on a Budget

This brand new ‘Horror Companion’ from Hemlock Books is a history of Tigon Pictures, the exploitation company set up in the 1960s by former cinema manager Tony Tenser as a rival to Hammer and Amicus.

A Hemlock Horror Companion

This ‘Horror Companion’ from Hemlock Books focusses on the life and work of film director Bob Clark, whose eclectic career was brought to an untimely end by a car accident in 2007. Clark was responsible for several cult horror hits but is probably best-remembered for Deathdream, Murder By Decree and especially 1974’s Black Christmas, which was instrumental in setting in train the ‘slasher’ sub-genre of the late 1970s and ’80s...
