As I’m sure many of you can identify with, reading films books – especially horror ones – is something that you can easily become addicted to. But what becomes really frustrating is that many GOOD books on cult personalities and cinema are either out-of-print or ridiculously hard to find. Filling that void in my life as of late is Shade Rupe’s excellent Dark Stars Rising, a collection of 27 interviews spanning the last 24 years with some of the most transgressive and eclectic minds in entertainment. B-D has your chance to win one of three copies of the book, which contains over 500 stills – many of them rare – and candid one-on-ones with Tura Satana, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Divine, among others. Read on for your chance to win.
Dark Stars Rising, featuring conversations between Shade Rupe (Funeral Party) and 27 of the leading lights of the transgressive arts (including Peter Sotos, Teller, Chas Ballun, Gaspar Noe, William Lustig and Floria Sigismondi, to name a few), is more than a mere book. Clocking in at 558 teeming pages, featuring over 500 jaw dropping images, many rare or unseen, and sporting a design of mind bending intricacy, each chapter boasting its very own lavish layout, DARK STARS RISING is a cross between a carnival, a massacre, and everyone’s ideal dinner party… Just make sure you check the menu.
