From The Press Release

August 26th, 2023 – From filmmaker, former FANGORIA magazine editor-in-chief and CORMAN/POE author Chris Alexander comes ART! TRASH! TERROR!: Adventures in Strange Cinema, a new book that collects over 150 essays and interviews that both analyze and celebrate some of the most eccentric and unforgettable movies in cult cinema history.

From recognized classics like George A. Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD, David Lynch’s THE ELEPHANT MAN and Werner Herzog’s NOSFERATU: THE VAMPYRE, to misunderstood masterpieces like Michael Mann’s THE KEEP, Boris Sagal’s THE OMEGA MAN and Neil Jordan’s BYZANTIUM, to unfairly maligned pictures like Kostas Karagiannis’ LAND OF THE MINOTAUR, Gordon Hessler’s KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF THE PARK and Brett Leonard’s HIDEAWAY, ART! TRASH! TERROR!: Adventures in Strange Cinema takes a serious, personal look at several strains of diverse international horror, dark fantasy and exploitation cinema. These are movies that shock, provoke, charm and transcend and – in some cases – deserve much more respect than they currently command.

Connecting these passionate, critical longform essays are a wealth of rare, insightful interviews conducted by the author with revered talents like Norman J. Warren, Kenneth Branagh, Lars Von Trier, David Cronenberg, John Logan, Rob Zombie, Julia Ducournau, William Crain, John Waters and many, many more.

ART! TRASH! TERROR!: Adventures in Strange Cinema will release Spring 2024 from Headpress Publishing.

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
