❉ New film imprint Electric Dreamhouse launches at FantasyCon today.
PS Publishing in conjunction with editor Neil Snowdon launches Electric Dreamhouse, a new film imprint, at FantasyCon today.
Electric Dreamhouse’s first books will be the first two titles in the ‘Midnight Movie Monographs’ series, in which genre authors, critics and film makers write indepth about movies that otherwise aren’t getting the kind of attention they deserves.
The introduction to the series explains the range’s aim and vision:
Imagine if you will that the BFI had a disreputable cousin, a Northern Grindhouse with tastes a little darker and stranger. With staff who love their movies with a passion that borders on religious zeal, who know you by name and welcome you in as they throw the doors open at midnight. Whose programming runs the gamut of worldwide genre film making, praising the strange, the unusual, the weird and forgotten.
Then step inside the Electric Dreamhouse! A new cinema imprint from PS Publishing and Editor Neil Snowdon… Settle down and get comfortable as we raise the curtain on our ‘Midnight Movie Monographs’ – an ongoing series dedicated to outstanding genre titles that just don’t get the attention elsewhere. Written by genre authors, film makers and some of the finest critical voices on the scene, bringing a unique perspective to films they love, these are not dry academic texts. They are passionate, incisive, and inspiring explorations that go deep, from writers who know and love the genre inside out. Expert — indeed award winning — practitioners in their field.
The first two books out the gate are ‘Martin’ by Jez Winship and ‘Theatre of Blood’ by John Llewellyn Probert, both out this month.
