What happens after the closing credits and before the lights go out? When you turn off your TV, but still aren’t able to sleep? Cancel your Netflix. Sometimes only the written word will do.
These twenty-two terrifying tales are a chilling homage to the silver screen. Discover that James Dean may well have lived beyond the grave, a trip to Oz is a one-way ticket, and zombies were behind the corporate greed of the 1980s. Learn how reality is edited (and found overly long) and how the Final Girl, a horror film’s sole survivor, emerges victorious and with a captive audience. Join award-winning and bestselling authors from Neil Gaiman to Peter Straub in a journey to the darkest depths of the theater.
