THE MAESTROS OF CELLULOID TERROR
The lights dim. The giant screen flickers. And suddenly our most gruesome and ghastly nightmares come to blood-chilling life before our eyes. From filmmakers whose macabre images haunt our dreams to actors and make-up artists who conspire to create monsters, twenty-two brilliant purveyors of cinematic dread usher us into their unique world of shadows and terror-sharing with us the secrets of their remarkable craft: the visual art of fear.
