48 HORROR FILMMAKERS & CREATORS JOIN FORCES
TO WRITE BOOK ON THE FILMS THAT INSPIRED THEIR CAREERS
On May 22, 2018, new production company and imprint, Black Vortex Cinema, will celebrate the release of their first book, entitled My Favorite Horror Movie, a collection of 48 essays by horror creators on the film that shaped their lives.
Produced and edited by horror filmmaker Christian Ackerman (Bethany/Death House/Slayer: You Against You), the book is a ghoulish celebration of how the singular viewing of a horror film can inspire someone to find their identity and develop an obsession with the dark side of arts.
Featuring legends of horror with some of the most prolific and unique new voices in the genre such as Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp/Victor Crowley), Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever/Stuck In The Middle), Tony Timpone (Fangoria), Jeffrey Reddick (Final Destination), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Rolfe Kanefsky (There’s Nothing Out There/The Black Room), Ryan Lambert (Monster Squad) and Michael Gingold (Fangoria), My Favorite Horror Movie is an intimate glimpse into the development of their horror-obsessed minds.
“I’m truly proud of the passion my colleagues put into these essays. The book is a auto-biographical glimpse into their creative souls,” says Ackerman. “I hope it inspires everyone to love horror as much as we do, and maybe even inspire them to create their own monsters!”
Featuring contributions from filmmakers, actors, writers, directors, painters, musicians, journalists and film festival directors, the essays in My Favorite Horror Movie celebrate classic films from the likes of George Romero, John Carpenter, Sam Raimi, Tobe Hooper, Dan O’Bannon, Wes Craven, Alfred Hitchcock, and many more!
“An altogether engrossing compendium detailing the impact of art upon artists,
My Favorite Horror Movie is a terrifying must-read.”
-Tom Holland – Writer-Director (Child’s Play, Fright Night, Psycho 2)
