Editorial Reviews


“A fun-filled homage to monster movies in the day before huge budgets, this novel recalls the refrain of Kihn’s hit ‘The Breakup Song’: ‘They don't write ’em like that anymore.’ ” —Publishers Weekly
“Kihn, founder of The Greg Kihn Band and an MTV mainstay in the 1980s, has a go at fiction in this horror tale set in 1950s Hollywood.” —Library Journal
“A very entertaining revamping of Ed Wood, the film about Hollywood’s worst filmmaker ever. . . . Not to be missed.”—Kirkus Reviews
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition. Review

Rock musician Greg Kihn obviously has tremendous affection for the kind of grade-B black and white horror films of the 50s that were turned out in record time by directors like Ed Wood and the early Roger Corman. In this first novel, he whips up a confection reminiscent of the Tim Burton movie Ed Wood--in which a Wood/Corman hybrid hangs out with a drug-addicted Béla Lugosi clone, a transvestite screenwriter, a Vampira clone, and various other oddballs in a lovingly detailed (wildroot oil on the hairdo, flash sport shirts, unfiltered Chesterfields) 50s Hollywood. The plot is thin, and is incidental to the characters and the mise en scene. Suffice it to say they get up to some hijinks involving desecration of corpses and a Satanist who can conjure up a Peruvian snake-god. Superficial, but highly amusing if you're in the right frame of mind. Horror Show is a nominee for a 1997 Bram Stoker Award. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
