Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The credits have rolled, but the lights are still off. Something is lurking on the other side of the screen. There are dark secrets, starving monsters, and haunted survivors who refuse to be left on the cutting room floor. But thats okay, right? After all, everybody loves the movies....

Here are twenty-three terrifying tales, dark reflections of the silver screen from both sides of the camera. James Dean gets a second chance at life—and death. The Wicked Witch is out of Oz, and she's made some very unlucky friends. When God decides reality needs an editor, what—and who—gets cut? These award-winning, bestselling authors will take you to the darkest depths of the theater and beyond.

Review:

"Superstar editor Datlow makes no missteps in this reprint collection of dark tales involving movies and moviemaking. The one original piece, Stephen Graham Jones's 'Tenderizer,' is a haunting exploration of tragedy on both a personal and national level. A.C. Wise's 'Final Girl Theory,' about a cult film that's an 'infection, whispered from mouth to mouth in the dark,' is disturbing and gory without fetishizing its horrors. Kim Newman's brilliant 'Illimitable Dominion' tells an alternate history of Edgar Allen Poe, Roger Corman, and American International Pictures that's particularly suited to film buffs who will probably spot the (initially) subtle changes to the time line. Film critic and author Genevieve Valentine provides both an entertaining story ('She Drives the Men to Crimes of Passion!') and an enlightening introduction, while even Douglas E. Winter's 'Bright Lights, Big Zombie' — the literary target of which has long faded — still holds up reasonably well. Strong stories by Gary McMahon and Gary A. Braunbeck, as well as poems by Lucy A. Snyder and Daphne Gottlieb, are also worth noting, but really, the entire volume is outstanding. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

What happens after the closing credits and before the lights go out? When you turn off your TV, but still arent able to sleep? Sometimes only the written word will do. These twenty-two classic tales are a chilling homage to the silver screen. Discover that James Deans death was not an accident, a trip to Oz is a one-way ticket, and zombies were behind the corporate greed of the 1980s. Learn how reality is edited (and found overly long) and how the final girl, the films sole survivor, emerges with a captive audience. Join award-winning and bestselling authors from Neil Gaiman to Peter Straub in a journey to the darkest depths of the theater.
