When I was seventeen we moved into a house of note, in the sophisticated backwoods of a “better part” of Arkansas. The elegant wood walls held the light of windows from heaven. The skylights, as they were, bathed the living room with sufficient light to hide the darkness beneath the floor. Moving from that room into the kitchen, with its regal appointments and then, into the upstairs master bedroom and Jacuzzi-clad bathroom finished the illuminated journey. Yet, the way downward was the path of note. There was carpet and dark and damp. First, on the right, was the door to the furnace room, with a massive, devouring cavern of iron teeth, waiting for its daily dose of wooden sacrifices. Then, a smaller bedroom, bathroom and a final, darker corner sleeping area. It was here I slept the years of my college life, rather than a dormitory appointment. The demon of the house was a more familiar roommate, a more intimate associate to my pain. Paralyzed with terror my limbs froze during the night hours as the masked intruder approached my body and wrapped its cold, blackly shrouded hands around my neck. Time and time again I opened my eyes to see the night realm held in place as the black mass undulated towards me, carrying its undisclosed intentions. There was even a day the presence moved freely during the light hours, a daring feat for the ruler of the darkness. It did not desire companionship, or conversation, only to rip the flesh of my soul. And I obliged with the scarred offering of a self-inflicted injury to my body. Herein are my credentials for pages you will read.

There is no cinema with such effect as that of the hallucinatory Italian horror film. From Riccardo Freda’s I Vampiri in 1956 to Il Cartaio in 2004, this work recounts the origins of the genre, celebrates at length ten of its auteurs, and discusses the noteworthy films of many others associated with the genre. The directors discussed in detail are Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, Mario Bava, Ruggero Deodato, Lucio Fulci, Umberto Lenzi, Antonio Margheriti, Aristide Massaccesi, Bruno Mattei, and Michele Soavi. Each chapter includes a biography, a detailed career account, discussion of influences both literary and cinematic, commentary on the films, with plots and production details, and an exhaustive filmography. A second section contains short discussions and selected filmographies of other important horror directors. The work concludes with a chapter on the future of Italian horror and an appendix of important horror films by directors other than the 50 profiled.

Little Shoppe of Horrors #32 By 1973, Hammer had been sold by Sir James Carreras to his son, Michael Carreras, at a period when the British film industry was collapsing. Leaving Michael to search for new ideas and financing sources for Hammer films. This led him to the Shaw Brothers, the far East’s major producer of movies. And out of that came THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES, which wildly integrated Western ideals of vampires with Eastern legends. Peter Cushing was back as Van Helsing for the last time, while Hong Kong super star, David Chiang, led the brothers and sister on a battle to save their village from the Golden Vampires. Little Shoppe of Horrors #32 takes you behind the scenes in that East did not always meet West as the two companies clashed on how the film should be made. But in the final analysis, it came out fun and very colorful. Featuring – “Black Belts Vs Black Magic” The Making of Hammer-Shaw Bros THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES by Bruce G. Hallenbeck.
