Horror hit Borders in Oxford Street last night with a talk and signing event for the new Telos hardback It Lives Again! Horror Movies in the New Millennium by Axelle Carolyn.
Axelle and her husband, film director Neil Marshall, were present with Telos’ publisher David J Howe to discuss modern horror. David surprised them with a bag full of DVDs which were used to facilitate discussion of the different styles and genres of horror which have developed over the last ten years or so. Discussion ranged from the remake trend which brought us reimagined versions of Halloween and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as classics like The Thing. J-Horror was covered as were films from Spain, Russia, Ireland and New Zealand …
Neil’s own films were discussed, with revelations that The Descent was almost totally filmed at Pinewood with no real caves involved, and some snippets of information about the forthcoming Centurian, which Neil is completing editing on.
After the discussion, the many attendees enjoyed free wine, soft drinks and nibbles courtesy of Borders and Telos Publishing, while chatting further to Neil and Axelle and getting copies of the book signed.
The evening seemed to be a roaring success, with the discussion packed to standing room only and everyone having a good time.
Telos would like to thank Neil and Axelle for their time, Mark, Julie and Becci at Borders for some fabulous promotion, support and for getting it all organised for us, and everyone who came along for supporting the event and the book.
