That’s what ENGLAND’S SCREAMING is.
You might remember Sean Hogan as the author of our Midnight Movie Monograph on DEATH LINE, in which Sean (a screenwriter and director himself) climbed inside the film frame, and inside the life of Inspector Calhoun (Donald Pleasance), to find out what made the cynical heart of the movie tick.
In the process, Sean picked apart elements of British history and culture, and he does so again here. But ENGLAND'S SCREAMING goes more than one step beyond, digging deeper, exposing the jet black strata occultism and savagery that lie beneath our green and pleasant lands; the network of lives through which it flows.
How does the Duc De Richleau (The Devil Rides Out) connect to Julian Karswell (Night Of The Demon) and Damien Thorn (The Omen)? . . .
You'll have to read to find out.
A searing, inventive, compulsive book.
With glorious cover art from Graham Humphreys, and a foreword by genre historian Jonathan Rigby, this is a must have for any fan of British Horror Films.
Enjoy it. I know I did!
