Early last year, Lord Battle was contacted by Vanessa Morgan to see if he would be interested in contributing to a book of essays about different movies featuring animals attacks. His answer was absolutely!
Several other Overlook creatures, including Berkeley Blazer, Math Mage, and KillDozer, also joined in, and each submitted an essay about an animal attack movie they were excited to write about. Now, that book is available for preorder! Here's the press release:
Just released with Moonlight Creek Publishing: the horror movie guide
When Animals Attack, edited by Vanessa Morgan
70 essays from Warren Fahy, Paul Kane, Matthew House, Aaron Christensen, Jonas Govaerts, and many others.
The definitive horror movie guide for fans of killers animals and “revenge of nature” films.
When Animals Attack: The 70 Best Horror Movies with Killer Animals provides a fascinating and entertaining insight into the cinematographic world of animals on the rampage. From well-known predators such as sharks and lions to unusual killing machines like turkeys, elephants, frogs, cats, and rabbits, there is no shortage of the species on display in this book.
Leading horror writers and filmmakers present their favorite “animals attack” films through in-depth essays. Some of the films are touching, some are repulsive, and some are just plain silly. Not all of these horror movies line up with the critical consensus, yet they have one thing in common: they have made the heart of the writer beat faster with excitement.
About the editor:
Vanessa Morgan is known as the “female version of Stephen King.” Three of her stories (A Good Man, Next to Her, The Strangers Outside) have become movies. When Animals Attack is her first non-fiction book. When she’s not writing, you can find her watching horror movies, attending film festivals, reading, going to restaurants, or photographing felines for her blog Traveling Cats. She lives in Belgium.
We're really excited to check out the final product, everything from the cover to the list of movies covered in this book is solid. You guys can order your own copy through Amazon here.
