The Dark Heart of Cinema – FrightFest Guide to Exploitation | Pick up your copy at this weekend

The Dark Heart of Cinema - FrightFest Guide to Exploitation

Now here’s something to add to anyone’s horror reference library, and it comes from FAB Press and FrightFest’s Alan Jones…. The Dark Heart of Cinema – FrightFest Guide to Exploitation.

Featuring eye-popping posters, lurid lobby cards, OTT advertising, and witty editorial on 200 wonderfully trashy titles covering all manner of X-ploitation subgenres from 1935 to 1985, this A-Z volume is the first in what could become an annual publication – and I for one hope so. It’s a great size and length (unlike FAB’s weighty but equally covetable An Act of Seeing), and even boasts an intro from Combat Shock director Buddy Giovinazzo.

Ahead of its proper release on 16 September, you can bag yourself a copy if you pop into the Shepherd’s Bush Vue cinema where FrightFest is now underway over the Bank Holiday weekend. And if you can catch him between screenings, you can even get Alan to sign it for you.

Visit the FrightFest and FAB Press websites for more info.

In the meantime, here’s a sample of what lurks beneath the covers….
