The Shrieking Sixties (Edited by Darrell Buxton)
« on: 13 May 2010 - 10:15 »

THE SHRIEKING SIXTIES sets out to document and comment upon the British horror boom of the period. Edited by Darrell Buxton (UK horror expert and critic whose work has appeared in publications including 'Samhain', 'Creeping Flesh' and 'Giallo Pages') and written by a variety of contributors including Mike Hodges ('Fangoria'), Steven West ('Is It...Uncut?') and Christopher Wood ('British Horror Films' website), the book features informative and lively reviews of 140 creepy, macabre, and downright scary movies. Additional appendices cover the short films of the era, borderline titles, and a study of how the censors handled on-screen terror at the time.

From Hammer's 'Brides Of Dracula' and 'Plague Of The Zombies', to cult classics like 'Witchfinder General' and 'Scream And Scream Again', THE SHRIEKING SIXTIES runs the full gruesome gamut. Of particular note is the book's coverage of Lindsay Shonteff's 1969 shocker 'Night, After Night, After Night', revealing daring new information about this ahead-of-its-time proto-slasher; and the rarely seen and even more rarely discussed 'The Return Of Dracula', a specialist vampire movie presented in British Sign Language.

In the tradition of recent successful publications such as 'English Gothic', 'Fragments Of Fear', and 'Ten Years Of Terror', THE SHRIEKING SIXTIES seems set to become a vital, essential addition to any fright film fan's library.



Special 'Festival' copies are available now for £14 inc P&P directly from Darrell who can be contacted via the Shrieking Sixties Facebook page HERE

If you don't have a Facebook account and would like to order a copy PM me for the details.

Which one are you going for?

I think the regular one is a nicer cover but there's something about having the "festival" one.

I wonder what the difference in print runs is?

It will be the 'festival' edition as I believe that's the only version available at the moment, I'm like you I prefer to get this early 'pre-release' copy.

'cos I'm a nerd for things like that!  :-*

He mentioned about just getting paypal in the thread over at the BHF forums. I can't remember my password though so I'm unable to get on there and find out the details.

Received mine today. Aside from the cover, does anybody know if the 'Special Festival Edition' is any different from the Midnight Marquee version?
