Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series -
Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series

October 25th, 1978. John Carpenter’s Halloween is unleashed upon an unsuspecting public and, in no time, becomes a horror movie phenomenon. Made for only $320,000.00, the expertly crafted and terrifying film would eventually gross $70 million worldwide, and would not only create a solid formula that has been imitated endlessly since 1978, but would also spawn no less than nine sequels with a tenth due out this October. In his book Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series, author Ernie Magnotta meticulously details exactly what made this entertaining and terrifying film the enduring classic that it is today. He then goes on to discuss how the sequels strayed further and further away from writer/director/composer John Carpenter’s original vision until they became something almost entirely different. The author goes into detail about all aspects of the series including story, characters, acting, suspense/scares, cinematography, direction/composition, music, Michael Myers’ ever-changing mask and much, much more! Packed with loads of information as well as almost 200 full-color photos, Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series is a must have for fans of the classic franchise. “A totally great read!” —P.J. Soles (“Lynda” 1978’s Halloween) "Ernie defin...

Sceneclopedia Selects: Halloween: Structural Components, Story Analysis, and the Complete Scene List of the 1978 Feature Film

Films aren't made of theories or rules. They're made of scenes. Even if you're not a screenwriter or filmmaker, literally just looking at a Sceneclopedia scene list, without reading any of the words, will make you see and think about your favorite films in a way you never have before.The purpose of Sceneclopedia is not to explain everything about screenplay structure and style, but to be a reference for scene lists, with only enough analysis to not leave you completely adrift. Sceneclopedia is a tool, not instructions. If you have ever tried to write a script or make a film, more likely than not, you watched some films in the vein of yours to try to figure out how to do it. Sceneclopedia assists that process, making it faster and easier to ponder your particular problems by seeing how some classic films solved theirs. You can study one film in detail, compare multiple films to each other, or just see when your favorite scene happened without having to fast-forward through the movie until you find it.The full-length Sceneclopedia books contain the scene lists for 25 films in a genre. Sceneclopedia Selects provide an outlet for films which don’t fit neatly into a genre book, and they also allow you to access scene lists for only the films you want, one at a time, regardless of ge...

Blood Money: A History of the First Teen Slasher Film Cycle -
Blood Money: A History of the First Teen Slasher Film Cycle

Scholars have consistently applied psychoanalytic models to representations of gender in early teen slasher films such as Black Christmas (1974), Halloween (1978) and Friday the 13th (1980) in order to claim that these were formulaic, excessively violent exploitation films, fashioned to satisfy the misogynist fantasies of teenage boys and grind house patrons. However, by examining the commercial logic, strategies and objectives of the American and Canadian independents that produced the films and the companies that distributed them in the US, Blood Money demonstrates that filmmakers and marketers actually went to extraordinary lengths to make early teen slashers attractive to female youth, to minimize displays of violence, gore and suffering and to invite comparisons to a wide range of post-classical Hollywood's biggest hits; including Love Story (1970), The Exorcist (1973), Saturday Night Fever (1977), Grease and Animal House (both 1978). Blood Money is a remarkable piece of scholarship that highlights the many forces that helped establish the teen slasher as a key component of the North American film industry's repertoire of youth-market product.

The Monster Show: A Cultural History of Horror; Revised Edition with a New Afterword -
The Monster Show: A Cultural History of Horror; Revised Edition with a New Afterword

Illuminating the dark side of the American century, The Monster Show uncovers the surprising links between horror entertainment and the great social crises of our time, as well as horror's function as a pop analogue to surrealism and other artistic movements. With penetrating analyses and revealing anecdotes, David J. Skal chronicles one of our most popular and pervasive modes of cultural expression. He explores the disguised form in which Hollywood's classic horror movies played out the traumas of two world wars and the Depression; the nightmare visions of invasion and mind control catalyzed by the Cold War; the preoccupation with demon children that took hold as thalidomide, birth control, and abortion changed the reproductive landscape; the vogue in visceral, transformative special effects that paralleled the development of the plastic surgery industry; the link between the AIDS epidemic and the current fascination with vampires; and much more. Now with a new Afterword by the author that looks at horror's popular renaissance in the last decade, The Monster Show is a compulsively readable, thought-provoking inquiry into America's obsession with the macabre.

The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World -
The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World

History comes alive in this textured account of the rivalry between Harry Houdini and the so-called Witch of Lime Street, whose iconic lives intersected at a time when science was on the verge of embracing the paranormal.The 1920s are famous as the golden age of jazz and glamour, but it was also an era of fevered yearning for communion with the spirit world, after the loss of tens of millions in the First World War and the Spanish-flu epidemic. A desperate search for reunion with dead loved ones precipitated a tidal wave of self-proclaimed psychics—and, as reputable media sought stories on occult phenomena, mediums became celebrities. Against this backdrop, in 1924, the pretty wife of a distinguished Boston surgeon came to embody the raging national debate over Spiritualism, a movement devoted to communication with the dead. Reporters dubbed her the blonde Witch of Lime Street, but she was known to her followers simply as Margery. Her most vocal advocate was none other than Sherlock Holmes' creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who believed so thoroughly in Margery's powers that he urged her to enter a controversial contest, sponsored by Scientific American and offering a large cash prize to the first medium declared authentic by its impressive five-man investigative committee.  Adm...
