It’s not long to wait for this year’s Arrow Video FrightFest, and there’s another exciting reason to go - the official launch of The FrightFest Guide to Ghost Movies.
Over the past few years, FrightFest and Fab Press have gotten together and produced some fantastic film guide books - including one for Exploitation Movies and Monster Movies. Highly informative and entertaining, these are beautiful-looking coffee table books that should be in any horror fan’s home.
The new release, The FrightFest Guide to Ghost Movies, has been written by Axelle Carolyn (who directed the brilliant Soulmate) and included 200 of the most memorable spooky titles from around the world.
Axelle said of the book: “Ghosts have haunted me my whole life. Everything I've ever directed, from short films to Soulmate and Tales of Halloween, has featured ghosts -- they're simply my favourite supernatural creatures. Ghost stories have been told for as long as humans have gathered around campfires, and their evolution on screen, from comedies to horror, is fascinating to look at”.
The book also includes a foreword by FrightFest veteran Andy Nyman, who co-wrote and co-directed the recent hit Ghost Stories with Jeremy Dyson.
The book launch takes place at the event from August 23rd to August 27th at Cineworld, Leicester Square, London during the Arrow Video FrightFest. The event finishes on Monday, August 28th.
The FrightFest exclusive hardcover will be on sale for just £20. The book's international street date is October 26th, 2018. Paperback price: £16.99 (UK) $24.95 (US).
