Monday, February 18th, 7:00 PM
1328 N. Damen (at Evergreen) in Wicker Park, Chicago
ONE OF THE BEST-REVIEWED HORROR BOOKS OF THE YEAR!!
"Bringing a refreshingly egalitarian approach to the subject, Horror 101 collects musings on our favorite chillers not by the expected assortment of critics and filmmakers, but the audience...the fans themselves. Young and old, male and female, located all over the globe. From ALIEN through THE WICKER MAN, each entry brings a breath of fresh air to the consideration of seminal movies many of us thought had been analyzed to death."
--Joe Dante, director, The Howling, Pirahna, Gremlins
Join the editor of Horror 101: The A-List of Horror Films and Monster Movies, Vol 1, Aaron Christensen, as he talks about how the book came to be, the recruiting of the international team of 78 divergent contributors and the selection of the films that make up Horror 101.
Aaron will lead a discussion about the evolution of the horror genre, and why the films listed in Horror 101 are significant in that evolution. He will touch on where the horror genre has been, where it currently stands now, and where it is (possibly) heading in the next 5-10 years. Along with answering any questions, Aaron will be on hand to sign copies of Horror 101.
