This weekend I’ll be introducing Bogdan Mirica’s film Dogs at the Romanian Film Festival in Seattle; the fest is packed with intriguing titles from Romania and visits from filmmakers. Dogs goes Saturday at 1:05 p.m. and Sunday at 12:20 p.m., both at the Uptown theater. Lots more info here.
The talkers in Framing Pictures re-convene for a conversation at Scarecrow Video on November 18. Join us for a freewheeling talk about movies old and new, and what you’d like to talk about. Check the FP Facebook page for updates.
This is out: My book on the 1931 Frankenstein, from Columbia University Press. One place to get it is here.
Out now: the first two volumes of Rotten, a wild, provocative, and gory graphic novel I have co-authored with Mark Rahner (art by Dan Dougherty). It’s a zombie Western set in 1877, with overtones of recent U.S. political history. Or possibly undertones. Click on my Rotten tab above for further info and marching orders. Order the Rotten trade paperbacks at the Rotten website and see cover art here. The Rotten page at Moonstone, where you can also order the Rotten book The Lost Diary of John J. Flynn, U.S. Agent, is here. Check the Rotten music video here.
