The Famous and the Slasher Book

Today's post is going to be about horror, but not zombie horror.  You may or may not know that I write nonfiction under my real name.  My first book, Life Lessons from Slasher Films, was published last year by Scarecrow Press.  I'm very proud of this book.  It started out as my thesis and I expanded it.

I have a friend, Jerrod Brown, who painted my covers for Life After the Undead and Death to the Undead.  He is an amazing person.  He goes to conferences and conventions and takes my books with him so he can get pictures with famous people.  Here is the most recent batch.

Camille Keaton, from I Spit on Your Grave 

Oliver Robins, from Poltergeist

Tony Moran, Michael from Halloween (he's the guy on the cover!)

John Dugan, Grandpa from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Andrew Bryniarski, Leatherface from the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Linnea Quigley, from The Return of the Living Dead

Scott Spiegel, cowrote Evil Dead II (one of my all-time favorite movies!)

Jonathan Tiersten, from Sleepaway Camp

April Burril (aka Chainsaw Sally) / Debbie Rochon

J LaRose, from the Saw films (III and IV)

Jen & Sylvia Soska, producers

  2. I have six from a previous convention, plus these 10. I also have pictures of famous people with Life After the Undead. You can see them all at my blog (
