Thanks to BearManor Media, fans of Bela Lugosi and of Universal’s Son of Dracula just might be adding a couple of new book titles to their library! I know I will be.
The first book, Scripts from the Crypt # 9: Son of Dracula is written by Gary D. Rhodes, Tom Weaver, Dr. Robert Kiss, and Robert Guffey and contains all the wonderful information in this series of books. You’ll get the production history, fun facts, the pressbook, essays by Robert Siodmak and Curt Siodmak, as well as the script! These are great titles when you’re wanting to more about a particular film. You can get the softcover edition for $29.95 or the hardcover edition for $39.95.
Then Gary D. Rhodes and Robert Guffey gives us Bela Lugosi and the Monogram 9! In the early 1940s, Bela Lugosi appeared in 9 low-budget films for Monogram Pictures. With titles such as The Invisible Ghost and Spooks Run Wild (both 1941), to The Corpse Vanishes (1942), The Ape Man (1943, and Voodoo Man (1944), these were not the highest in production value. But Lugosi was giving it his all and everyone involved were trying to make a good picture each and every time. This new book covers each of these titles. I can’t wait to dig into this book because I know I am going to want to watch each and every one of these titles when I’m done! That is the great thing about these types of reference books. You’ll learn more and then want to experience them all over again. The softcover edition for this one is $24.95 and the hardcover one is $34.95.
Kudos to BearManor Media, Rhodes, Weaver, Guffey, and the rest of the authors for continuing to give us horror fans more to read and learn!
