Cinema Macabre

Just received my contributor’s copies of the rather beautiful Cinema Macabre. Edited by the indefatigable Mark Morris, who asked fifty practitioners of the genre to contribute an essay on their favourite horror movie, it features terrific artwork by J.K. Potter and an introduction by Jonathan Ross. Buy it to find out what Simon Pegg has to say about Dawn of the Dead, why Michael Marshall Smith has that insidious music from Halloween as his ringtone, why China Mieville can just about forgive Russell Mulcahy for that infamous video of Duran Duran prancing around on a yacht, and why Kim Newman thinks Let’s Scare Jessica To Death deserves a place in his all-time top ten.

I chose Videodrome, by the way.
