FrightFest and FAB Press once again join forces to launch THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO WEREWOLF MOVIES, which goes on sale at this year's FrightFest, from Aug 22 – Aug 26 at Cineworld Leicester Square, London. Following the success of The FrightFest Guide to Exploitation Movies, The FrightFest Guide to Monster Movies and The FrightFest Guide to Ghost Movies, this is the fourth in an on-going series of wide appeal books for both the curious spectator and the cult connoisseur.

The crimson eyes of the werewolf have stalked us across the centuries. We are now most familiar with the wolfman courtesy of Hollywood. Over the past century, a diverse pack of lycanthropes has manifest on the silver screen – in big-bucks blockbusters and zero-budget B-movies – each revealing a little more of the nature of the beast. Within these colorful pages we encounter reluctant wolfmen and shapeshifting sadists, big bad fairytale wolves and lycanthropic nymphomaniacs.

Our guide is acclaimed author, broadcaster, occult historian – and lifelong werewolf obsessive – Gavin Baddeley. By finding fresh perspectives on established classics, uncovering neglected gems, and even examining a few howlers among the definitive selection of werewolf movies reviewed, Baddeley shows how the myth has adapted and transformed: whereby werewolves become analogies for alcoholism or adolescence, or ciphers for sexual awakening or serial murder.

Providing our foreword is the award-winning director, writer and producer Neil Marshall, whose brilliant debut feature Dog Soldiersreinvigorated the werewolf movie for the 21st Century.

So, the moon is full, the wolfsbane is in bloom… Time to brave the fogbound moors to find out who – or what – is responsible for that baleful howling… all is revealed in the FrightFest Guide to Werewolf Movies.

The official book launch takes place at FrightFest, Cineworld, Leicester Square (22nd to 26th August 2019). The FrightFest exclusive hardcover costs just £20. The book's international street date will be 1 October 2019. Paperback price: £17.99 (UK) $24.95 (US)



Hardcovers remain exclusive to FAB Press, but there is also a paperback version, available from all good bookstores.
