The Horror Anthology Handbook

I am honored to be included in the "words of wisdom" section of this fantastic guide to horror anthologies! We've done quite a lot of microbudget anthology work in the past few years and I'm definitely excited to see the field assessed and reflected upon in this great new book!

You've directed a few short films, but you're still chasing the dream of the elusive feature... From Trick ‘r Treat & V/H/S to Black Mirror & Goosebumps, writer Keith Hopkins interviews a slew of filmmakers to give YOU the best methods for assembling short form content into feature length content. This is the definitive guide to horror anthology filmmaking, with actionable advice that will guide you on your filmmaking journey.

Bloody Disgusting says, "The book, The Horror Anthology Handbook, is aimed at upcoming filmmakers who want to learn from the experience of others, or for those just curious about the filmmaking process behind some of their favorite anthologies from Bloody Disgusting’s V/H/S and Southbound to XX, The ABC’s of Death, Trick ‘r Treat, “Black Mirror” and more.

 

It features interviews with yours truly, not to mention Simon Barrett (V/H/S, V/H/S/2), Michael Mcquown (The Dark Tapes), Sofia Carrillo (XX), Ant Timpson (ABCs of Death, Field Guide to Evil), Al Jean (“Simpsons Treehouse of Horror”), Ron Oliver (“Goosebumps”, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”),  Stephen Haren (“Black Mirror”), Andy Nyman (Ghost Stories) and many more.
