Back in 2012, Kier-La Janisse published her book House of Psychotic Women, that I guarantee was like no other book you’ve read before. Part autobiographical, while discussing in great details about different films that had an effect on Janisse throughout her life. Now, a decade later, she has expanded it with almost a 100 more pages and more than a 100 new film reviews, as well in a large format than the original.
According to publisher FAB Press, this book is “an autobiographical exploration of female neurosis in horror and exploitation films. Anecdotes and memories interweave with film history, criticism, trivia and confrontational imagery to create a reflective personal history and examination of female madness, both onscreen and off.” This will make sure you look at some films very differently than you do now, which is always the best that a book on film can do. You might not agree with the thoughts in here, but at least it will make you think.
This edition is once again published by FAB Press and is on sale right now priced at only £24.99, which is just over $31 in the US. Granted, the postage to the US is going to set you back another $20 but that is just how it is getting something from overseas. But at least you can get a nice hardcover edition and get a signed bookplate, plus, you’ll get an audio CD with author Janisse reading the literary classic ‘The Yellow Wallpaper‘ with original music by Timothy Fife. This CD will not be come with editions sold through other outlets and bookstores, but only through FAB.
