    “At the end of the day, screenwriting is an instrumental part of making a movie, but make no mistake, it’s still very much a discipline of writing.”-Stephen Johnson Have you ever wanted to make movie, ever wonder how it’s done? Perhaps, you already have a film or two under your belt. Whatever your situation may be this is a book worth looking into! What about you writers? Ever dream of seeing your work on the big screen? You too, can find invaluable tips on what works and what doesn’t when it com “At the end of the day, screenwriting is an instrumental part of making a movie, but make no mistake, it’s still very much a discipline of writing.”-Stephen Johnson Have you ever wanted to make movie, ever wonder how it’s done? Perhaps, you already have a film or two under your belt. Whatever your situation may be this is a book worth looking into! What about you writers? Ever dream of seeing your work on the big screen? You too, can find invaluable tips on what works and what doesn’t when it comes to adapting a story to a screenplay. As a person who has no aspirations for film making (only film watching, LOL), I still found this a fascinating read. Interwoven between how-tos and what-not-to-dos, you will find amusing anecdotes, insider info, and WOW moments of “I didn’t know that’s how it’s done.” When you have the likes of Wes Craven, Ed Naha, George Romero, Patrick Lussier, and all the rest of these greats giving advice, how could you not want to read what they have to say? Thoroughly entertaining and oh so informative, this is a book that anyone interested movies will surely want to read! Whether you like Horror or not, the tips found here can be adapted to any genre. Buy it, you’ll like it!

    Horror 201 is a collection of anecdotes in the form of essays and interviews with film industry insiders. And whether you aspire to write for television or movies or are simply a film buff, this book offers some entertaining insights into how movies are made, and just how vastly the final product can differ from the screenplay as originally submitted. It should be noted that this is not a 'how to' book, and very little advice is given on how to write a screenplay (other than 'don't give up'). Ind Horror 201 is a collection of anecdotes in the form of essays and interviews with film industry insiders. And whether you aspire to write for television or movies or are simply a film buff, this book offers some entertaining insights into how movies are made, and just how vastly the final product can differ from the screenplay as originally submitted. It should be noted that this is not a 'how to' book, and very little advice is given on how to write a screenplay (other than 'don't give up'). Indeed, one of the most common responses to the interviewer's request for advice to aspiring writers is to read one of the many books available on how to write a screenplay, so if you're looking for instructions on how to get started as a writer you will need to go elsewhere. This is not to say that the book is of no value to prospective screen writers, but be aware that it is more a collection of stories, and lists of film makers favourite horror movies than a guide. As such, though, it is a worthwhile read even for people like myself, who have absolutely no interest in a career in screenwriting.

    If you like horror movies and/or a behind-the-scenes look into creative endeavors, this is a must-read. A wide range of interviewees, from Hollywood legends to successful indies to people you might not yet know by name, give advice and tell stories from every angle of the horror film business. Sometimes funny, sometimes frustrating, and all-around interesting for fans and filmmakers alike.
