Exquisite Terror 5 Pre-Order
Now featuring even more content than before, inside this issue you'll find in-depth essays and analyses on the likes of The Shining, The Omen, Silence of the Lambs and the werewolf (as a representation of 'coming out') in horror cinema, plus interviews with Uncle Bob Martin and Ramsey Campbell. Elsewhere, author and critic Jon Towlson delves into the world of film director Michael Reeves, while I explore the relationship between eroticism and death in the films of Dario Argento*. Every essay and article is accompanied by original and beautiful artwork (including some gorgeous illustrations by CJ Ryder).
I'm so happy to see the return of this publication, and to once again have my writing included within its pages. Print isn't dead – please support independent publishing and pre-order your copy here.
*This essay began as a piece for a book I was invited to contribute to back in 2008 (!). Sadly, that particular project (the aim of which was to bring together a selection of varied critical approaches to Dario Argento's body of work) eventually fell through. Rather than let all the research (and time spent conducting research) go to waste, I kept working on the essay whenever I could, revising and redrafting it on and off over the years, until I felt it was finally finished. I'm happy it has at last found a fitting home - especially as that home is within the pages of Exquisite Terror, where I feel it really belongs.
