Title: House of Psychotic Women - Kier-La Janisse (FAB Press)
Post by: Jonny on 22 May 2012 - 09:05

Coming this July from FAB Press…

House of Psychotic Women is an autobiographical exploration of female neurosis in horror and exploitation films. Anecdotes and memories interweave with film history, criticism, trivia and confrontational imagery to create a reflective personal history and examination of female madness, both onscreen and off.

God, this woman can write, with a voice and intellect that’s so new. The truth in the most deadly unique way I’ve ever read.
- Ralph Bakshi, director of Fritz the Cat, Heavy Traffic, Fire and Ice, etc.

This sharply-designed book with a 16-page full-colour section is packed with rare stills, posters, pressbooks and artwork that combine with family photos and artifacts to form a titillating sensory overload, with a filmography that traverses the acclaimed and the obscure in equal measure. Films covered include The Entity, The Corruption of Chris Miller, Singapore Sling, 3 Women, Toys Are Not for Children, Repulsion, Let’s Scare Jessica to Death, The Haunting of Julia, Secret Ceremony, Cutting Moments, Out of the Blue, Mademoiselle, The Piano Teacher, Possession, Antichrist and hundreds more!

Limited edition hardback comes with alternative cover artwork, plus an exclusive free gift of a flexi-disc postcard featuring the song ‘Somebody’s Waitin’ for You’ by Charles Bernstein, from the 1972 film PIGS!

It looks interesting. I've had my eye on this for a while and when you posted this yesterday I caved in and placed an order. The price of the book itself isn't too bad, but the shipping was a staggering £11.82.
