Brad Weismann will speak about and sign his new book, Lost in the Dark: A World History of Horror Film, on Thursday, August 12th at 6:30pm at Boulder Book Store. Tickets for this event are $5 (plus a small processing fee) and are available on Eventbrite HERE or by clicking the button below.
About the Book:
Since 1990, the production of horror films has risen exponentially worldwide, and in 2013, horror films earned an estimated $400 million in ticket sales. Horror has long been the most popular film genre, and more horror movies have been made than any other kind. We need them. We need to be scared, to test ourselves, laugh inappropriately, scream, and flinch. We need to get through them and come out, blinking, still in one piece.
Lost in the Dark: A World History of Horror Film is a straightforward history written for the general reader and student that provides a general introduction to the genre, serves as a guidebook to its film highlights, and celebrates its practitioners, trends, and stories. A sweeping survey that doesn't scrimp on details, Lost in the Dark is sure to satisfy both the curious and the completist.
