New Books! The Shining, Ju-On, Cannibal Holocaust, The Company of Wolves and The Films of Terence Fisher

Halloween is right around the corner so it is only natural that our thoughts should turn to horror!

Auteur Publishing sent over a few of their new books and they are all perfect for the horror fans amongst us.

First up are four new releases from The Devil’s Advocates range. If you’ve never read any of these before then you are in for a treat. Eash one gives a critique on individual horror films. Each one is only about 100 pages long, but they are packed full of so much information. From themes, cultural legacy, and in-depth looks at various aspects of the film.

Seriously, even if you think you know everything about a particular film, these books are bound to shed new light on it. Even if you are not a fan of the film in question the book may well give you a new appreciation of it.

The Company of Wolves by James Gracey, Cannibal Holocaust by Callum Waddell, The Shining by Laura Mee and Ju-On: The Grudge by Marisa C. Hayes are now available to buy.

They also sent over The Films of Terence Fisher by Wheeler Winston Dixon. If you are a fan of the Hammer Horror movies – such as The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Dracula (1958) – then this is a must-have even though his horror movies are just part of his career. It looks at his film noirs, comedies, and early apprenticeship work to create a full picture of Fisher’s life and work.

It is all absolutely fascinating and goes into great detail about many of his classic films. You can tell there is so much love put into the book and it gives us great insight into the man and the various challenges he faced bringing some of the films to life. It also reveals many aspects of the British Film Industry that helps put everything into perspective.

Based on the work Dixon did in his groundbreaking study The Charm of Evil (1991), this is an entirely revised and rewritten work with new research, new details, and fresh critical insights.
