Editorial Reviews

Review

"Midnight Movie is all Tobe, all brilliantly excessive and funny. Very cool, very enjoyable." —John Carpenter

"Uses horror tropes with considerable skill and ingenuity...Hooper demonstrates an undeniable talent." —Publishers Weekly

"Tobe Hooper is a Texas original and a great American filmmaker. His novel Midnight Movie is just as insane as I knew it would be.  A violent, funny and novel premise (no pun intended.)" —John Landis 

"Much like he did in the world of film, Tobe Hooper has brought a fascinating and twisted new vision to the world of horror fiction." – Rob Zombie

"It’s catnip for splatterpunk fans...a lecherous and barbarous good time."Daniel Kraus, Booklist

About the Author

Tobe Hooper is the creator of numerous films but remains best known for the genre-defining Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which spawned one of the highest grossing horror-movie franchises of all time.

Basically, if you're a fan of Tobe's movies, you'll probably enjoy this book.
Jessica
This was the stupidest book I have ever read, but for some reason I could not put it down...... The story line was not that original, and the characters had no depth.

Hooper doesn't care enough in his story anymore to bother us with these details.

I just bought the book "Midnight Movie" by Tobe Hooper and Alan Goldsher and could not get enough! As a long time fan of Texas Chainsaw Massacre as well as Hooper's other films such as "Eaten Alive" and "The Funhouse" I dove into this book expecting nothing less than blood splatter on the floor, grindhouse excitement. I was not let down! This book has everything that made the grindhouse films of the 60s and 70's legendary. Sex, Violence, and ZOMBIES! While I was disappointed that it was not a lengthier novel I would find it ridiculous for any horror fan not to be impressed by this book. It is a MUST have for all the horror movie geeks like myself, tobe hooper fans, or horror fiction fans in general. For a quick read at 315 pages - it packs a punch like you wouldn't believe.

I loved this book. I'm a big fan of the type of movie that this book is trying to recreate. The use of technology really shaped the story and made it feel like I was watching a movie filmed from multiple perspectives. It didn't feel forced and superfluous like some other novels I've read. Basically, if you're a fan of Tobe's movies, you'll probably enjoy this book. It's an easy read and moves quickly. Great for summer!

I had this on my Amazon Kindle Wishlist but wasn't too sure about buying it so I was happy when I found a copy at my local library & got it out & was glad I did. The book while enjoyable was not something I could read again & again. I loved the story but the way it was written annoyed me. The first part was written in the view of people who "lived through" what happened & the middle was a mish-mash of blog entries, twitter posts, emails & news stories. The last part was written as the first was & it made it hard to read.
