Nightmare of Ecstasy: The Life and Art of Edward D. Wood, Jr. Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This incredible, exhaustive biography of the cult movie auteur inspired the Tim Burton movie Ed Wood, starring Johnny Depp, Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette and Martin Landau.

Author Rudolph Grey unearths the remarkable stories behind such films as Plan 9 From Outer Space and Glen or Glenda. Meet the "Wood Spooks" — Bela Lugosi, Vampira, Criswell and Tor Johnson. Nightmare of Ecstasy reveals the weird, wild and sordid aspects of the man the ignorant have called "The worst filmmaker of all time."

Review:

"Delirious and horrifying — and All True!" Time

Review:

"The literary event of the year!" New York Daily News

Review:

"Finally the Ed Wood story told in all its naked wonder. I stayed up all night reading it with my mouth hanging open." John Waters
