11TH JUNE 2019 - THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO WEREWOLF MOVIES BY GAVIN BADDELEY. FOREWORD BY NEIL MARSHALL

FrightFest and FAB Press once again join forces to launch THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO WEREWOLF MOVIES, which goes exclusively on sale during Arrow Video FrightFest 2019, Aug 22 – Aug 27. Both the author Gavin Baddeley and filmmaker Neil Marshall, who wrote the foreword, will be present to sign copies.

Following the success of the three previous editions: The FrightFest Guide to Exploitation Movies, Monster Movies & last year’s Ghost Movies, this is the latest in a series of wide appeal books for both the curious spectator and the cult connoisseur.

For more than a century, a diverse pack of lycanthropes have memorably manifested onto our screens, in many hair-raising shapes and sizes. Within these colourful pages we will encounter reluctant wolfmen, shapeshifting sadists, Nazi werewolves, werewolf nuns, big bad fairytale wolves and lycanthropic nymphomaniacs.

Acclaimed author, broadcaster and occult historian, Gavin Baddeley, finds fresh perspectives on established classics, uncovers neglected gems, and even examines a few howlers among the two hundred-odd werewolf movies reviewed. In the process Baddeley shows how the myth has transformed; whereby werewolves become analogies for alcoholism or adolescence, or ciphers for sexual awakening or serial murder.

Gavin said today: “I was flattered to be asked - I'm among pretty distinguished company with the other FrightFest Guide authors and contributors - and it seemed an ideal opportunity to explore why I've been so fascinated by werewolves since childhood, As a lifelong lycanthropy obsessive, an excuse to watch hundreds of werewolf films under the pretext of work was always going to be impossible to resist!
