Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series - 380 pages

Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series is a book by author and filmmaker Ernie Magnotta, who also writes for Scary Monsters magazine. 380 pages with nearly 200 full-color photos.

Oct. 25, 1978. John Carpenter's Halloween is unleashed upon an unsuspecting public and, in no time, becomes a horror movie phenomenon. Made for only $320,000.00, the expertly crafted and terrifying film would eventually gross $70 million worldwide and would not only create a solid formula that has been imitated endlessly since 1978 but would also spawn no less than nine sequels with a tenth true remake released October 2018.

In his book, Magnotta meticulously details exactly what made this entertaining and terrifying film the enduring classic that it is today. He then goes on to discuss how the sequels strayed further and further away from writer/director/composer John Carpenter's original vision until they became something almost entirely different. The author goes into detail about all aspects of the series including story, characters, acting, suspense/scares, cinematography, direction/composition, music, Michael Myers" ever-changing mask and much, much more!

Packed with loads of information as well as almost 200 full-color photos, Halloween: The Changing Shape of an Iconic Series is a must have for fans of the classic franchise.

"A totally great read!" -- P.J. Soles (Lynda in 1978's Halloween)
"Ernie definitely knows the Halloween series. This October 31st, I'll let him live." -- Dick Warlock (Michael Myers in 1981's Halloween II)
"Ernie Magnotta has meticulously detailed the nuances of the Halloween franchise characters ... I found his observations of Rachel Carruthers and Jamie Lloyd in H4 and H5 to be spot on." -- Ellie Cornell (Rachel Carruthers in Halloween 4 and 5)
