A renegade band of directors have renounced the cartoon trappings of recent horror flicks and reclaimed the genre for a new generation of fans. Their work is darker, nothing is off limits, and every frame is as beautiful as its contents are disturbing. The New Horror Handbook is based on exclusive interviews with the leaders of this movement, including Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever), Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue) among others.

The New Horror Handbook

Growing up shooting Super 8 movies in Toronto’s High Park, Vincenzo Natali and Andre Bijelic exploded onto the international film scene with 1997’s Cube, a sci-fi/horror film about 6 people trapped in a maze of death; its repercussions are still being felt cinematically today. This book reveals the complete story of how these childhood friends brought a convincing, futuristic vision of hell to the big screen for less than $1 million in Canada, far from the Hollywood studio system.

Cube: Inside the Making of a Cult Film Classic

From its tumultuous beginnings in 1977 to its end by firing squad—on screen and off—Soap was as passionate and controversial as the times in which it was made. Based on interviews with nearly 30 members of the cast and crew, this book takes you behind the scenes of its making, from the producers' battles with network censors to storylines planned but never filmed.

Soap: The Unauthorized Inside Story of the Sitcom that Broke ALL the Rules

Slip behind the scenes of this television classic, from the first glimmer of the idea to the making of the series finale, based on more than 40 interviews with cast and crew, including Edward Herrmann, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn, executive producer Gavin Polone and more. From the writers' room, wardrobe trailer and the editor's office, watch as an episode comes together in a scant eight days. 

The Gilmore Girls Companion

Between 1970 and 2000, PBS and cable TV brought some of the finest British programs ever made to American audiences and introduced actors, writers, and producers who became pop culture icons. 30 Years of British Television brings you interviews with 14 of those legends, including John Inman (Are You being Served?), Stephanie Cole (Waiting for God), Clive Swift (Keeping Up Appearances) and many more.
