The New Horror Handbook

horror_248It’s time the New Horror elite had their say.

Freddy? Jason? Michael Myers? Please!

Since the waning days of the 20th century, a renegade band of directors have renounced the cartoon trappings of recent horror flicks and reclaimed the genre for a new generation of fans. Their work is darker, nothing is off limits, and every frame is as beautiful as its contents are disturbing.

The New Horror Handbook introduces you to the leaders of this “new horror” movement, including:

  • Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever)
  • Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue)
  • Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice)
  • John Fawcett (Ginger Snaps, The Dark)

The Handbook also examines what’s happening on the fringes of modern horror, where you will meet:

  • Steve Niles, the comic book phenom who dragged horror comics out of their 50-year rut with the hit series 30 Days of Night
  • Rodrigo Gudino, who started Rue Morgue magazine – the voice of the “new horror” movement – just so he could break into horror filmmaking himself
  • America’s youngest horror film director, and the grown-up documentary crew who captured her every move for a film of their own.
  • Horror filmmaker Joe Monks, who just might also be America’s only blind director  And many more!
