"As an in-depth look into what it takes to produce great horror films, we can think of no better resource on the market!" - Dave Jeffery & James Hart (Award winning film makers from Venomous Little Man Productions) "Horror 201: The Silver Scream will be seen as a landmark, the ultimate practical guide to horror filmmaking that will hopefully create and arm an entire generation of horror screenwriters and aspiring directors." - Aaron Sterns "Following the big success of Bram Stoker Award nominated HORROR 101: THE WAY FORWARD, Crystal Lake Publishing is back again with HORROR 201: THE SILVER SCREAM, making the transition from fiction to film. As with the former title in the series, HORROR 201: THE SILVER SCREAM is jammed packed with entertaining, interesting, and useful material for would-be horror filmmakers and insatiable movie geeks who just have to know about everything. The amazing interviews with Wes Craven, George A. Romero, and John Carpenter alone are worth the price of the book. Horror fans, whether film or fiction, need this book - and really anyone interested in movies period. Recommended!" - Aaron J. French, Editor-in-Chief of Dark Discoveries "No one teaches horror. As a student of terror, realizing just how useful it is in teaching how society works and is influenced, that is a shame. Horror 201 opens the door again, but be careful... you don't know what lurks on the other side. The truth is scary." - David C. Hayes "Horror 201: The Silver Scream is a brilliant glimpse into the horror and movie making industry. This book will point the way, light the path and ignite the fires inside you and get you putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard." - Linzi Osburn
