FORGOTTEN FACES OF FANTASTIC FILMS
by James T. Coughlin, 8.5x11, paperback 257 pages, rare photos
Price $25 SALE PRICE $18!
James Coughlin dedicated this volume to those wonderful character actors, we know their faces, but seldom rmember their neams. They were a strange and striking repertory, playing in Hollywood’s nether world arena of Frankenstein’s Monster, Count Dracula, the Mummy, the Invisible Man and the Wolf Man. Each and every one was a seasoned professional, but his or her name was usually far below the billing of a Karloff, Lugosi, Rains or Chaney ... and sometimes there was no billing at all.

SALE PRICE $35
SO DEADLY SO PERVERSE—The Italian thriller, known as the giallo to its hardcore devotees, is a breed of mystery thriller like none other. Taking inspiration from the Edgar Wallace krimis and early, seminal works by auteurs like Alfred Hitchcock and Fritz Lang, these colorful and labyrinthine shockers pushed the envelope of good taste in the 1960s and exploded into glorious excess throughout the 1970s and ’80s. Author Troy Howarth explores the genesis of the genre and traces it to its eventual decline in this two-volume study. Each title is afforded its own in-depth review, replete with contextual information and biographical data on key players in front of and behind the camera. Volume two, covers 1974 to 2013.
