I’m not even going to lie: this past weekend I spent some $200s on “TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE” related merchandise. Now I didn’t go seeking it out, but when both Fright-Rags AND Mondo Tees are releasing signed posters and ultimate editions related to Tobe Hooper’s 70s masterpiece, you can’t expect me to not take out a second mortgage or make a deal with Satan for some spare cash. Well it is now safe to assume that that number will be rising by about $14s today as the director turned novelist is releasing his first book, “MIDNIGHT MOVIE”. The original novel is based upon a script idea that the horror maestro had scrapped many years ago, but thankfully Hooper will be giving his fans a chance to see the story starting today. below you can get all the details and a screencap of the book’s cover…
WRITTEN BY: Tobe Hooper and Alan Goldsher
“The good news: Director Tobe Hooper has been invited to speak at a screening of Destiny Express, a movie he wrote and directed as a teenager, but that hasn’t seen the light of day in decades. And Hooper’s fans are ecstatic.
The bad news: Destiny Express proves to be a killer . . . literally. As the death toll mounts, Tobe embarks on a desperate journey to understand the film’s thirty-year-old origins—and put an end to the strange epidemic his creation has set in motion.
Featuring the terror, humor, and sly documentary style Hooper devotees remember from such classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Midnight Movie is vintage Tobe Hooper, again demonstrating the director’s place as one of the godfathers of modern horror.”
“MIDNIGHT MOVIE” Is Available NOW! (MSRP – $14)
