Book Description

**Nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Anthology by the Horror Writers Association**

A screenwriter pays a ghastly price for inspiration—and begs for more… A director looking for fresh-faced talent finds more than he bargained for… A legendary diva will sacrifice anything for fame and glory… A TV personality discovers the twisted truth behind his co-star’s impossible celebrity scoops… A bizarre film by an unknown writer brings bloody chaos to everyone who screens it… A mail-room clerk finds out just what kind of guts it takes to become a top talent agent…

Vampiric producers, ghostly actors, psychotic limousine drivers, murderous stunt men and more haunt the streets and back lots of Hollywood in twenty original horror and suspense stories set in the heart of show business, and written by veteran movie and television professionals who went through Hell and back to bring you these tales.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gorier than any PG-13 horror flick you'll see, and written better (by a mile) than any SyFy schlockfest, HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD is worth a look." --Dr. Loomis, Aint It Cool News Horror. 

"HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD is a unique and refreshing read for any genre fan, and genuinely impossible to not enjoy." --Vivienne Vaughn, FANGORIA

"If you're a fan of horror, delivered in any medium, this is a must-read." --Matt Molgaard's Horror Novel Reviews

"I look forward to volume two since volume one of HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD is an entertaining anthology."
     -Felix Vasquez Jr. at Cinema-Crazed.com

"Kick ass horror stories!" --Brett Pierce, co-Director/Writer/Producer of DEADHEADS the movie

About the Author

"Hell Comes To Hollywood" Editor Eric Miller has worked in independent film for over twenty years as a Screenwriter, Head of Production,  Director of Development, Producer, Production Manager, and other exciting, fun filled, low stress jobs.

His screenplay credits include Night Skies ,The Shadow Men, Mask Maker and Swamp Shark, as well as the Sy Fy Channel epic movie Ice Spiders which was said by the Hollywood Reporter to be "...first rate Entertainment" and by Dread Central horror web site to "spin a web of mirth and mayhem", as well as prompting a monologue and parody skit on The Late Show With Craig Ferguson. He also has a few scripts lurking "in development", and has done uncredited rewrites on other produced films.

He has a lifelong passion for books and reading, and has been dreaming of starting a small press for many years. Technology has finally made the dream possible, and though it could turn into a nightmare, at least he will have material for a new story.

Miller is a member of the Horror Writers Association.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, Fun Anthology August 10, 2012
Format:Paperback
Really solid anthology of horror stories centered around the Hollywood film industry. All 21 stories are great but there a few standouts that some smart producer should pick up to make into films. Especially loved "Message In A Bottle", "The Cutting Room", "Town Car" & "Not Elves". Highly recommended for horror fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood and horror are a great combination! September 14, 2012
Format:Paperback
Now that the Halloween season is approaching, it's time to grab a good book, go find your favorite shady spot and enjoy some spooky fun. Hell Comes To Hollywood is a perfect choice. It has something for everyone, varying in degrees of gore and ghoulish mayhem.

It is a compilation of short stories all dealing with themes in the horror movie/Hollywood flavor; and the writers do their best to make you squirm just a bit in your seat, when the theater is dark and all you can do is pull up your legs hoping there's nothing underneath you.

To give you a taste of what's in store, there are stories which include a writer that has to pay the ultimate sacrifice, an actress that has to choose between fame or her son's life, the real demons of Hollywood, and the gruesome discovery of the true reason celebrities die in threes.

I would give this a solid 4 out of 5 as it does keep you turning pages, becoming involved with the various characters on their journeys. Although I do hope that this is just a beginning of collections as I would love to enjoy a new round every Halloween.

This book is a great read all year round, of course, but when those shadows get longer and the wind has that bite to it, Hell Comes To Hollywood puts that extra special chill up your spine that you've been craving. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.
After all, who doesn't love a good scare now and then?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down August 13, 2012
Format:Paperback
I am not a typical horror fan. I don't do scary, but I thought I could read these short stories without letting them into my head. WRONG - I'm only 3 stories in and I had my first nightmare in years last night! I can't put this book down!

4.0 out of 5 stars good combination August 18, 2012
Format:Paperback
Short story anthologies always have some hits and misses. This is almost entirely hits. TOWN CAR by Joseph Dougherty and THEY GO IN THREES by Shane Bitterling were particularly good, but it's a good collection overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Horror Anthology September 17, 2012
By ktg3925
Format:Paperback
This is a great anthology of horror stories that I could not put down! Stories are centered around the film industry and are an easy read for those of you who don't have time to sit and read an entire book very often.

Each author has his/her own brand of horror, so there is a story to appeal to every fan's taste. Reminds me of the Twilight Zone series and would make a great tv series of its own!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful September 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book to review because I love anthologies. They aren't long and great while waiting at the doctor's or on a car ride. These stories were very good, they were well written and interesting. And they kept my interest with stories that made me go "wait a minute! I wasn't expecting that!" I thoroughly enjoyed every single story!
