Hollywood Hex: Illustrated History of Cursed Movies (Cinema Collection 13)
Fitting that this is #13 in the Creation Cinema Collection!
From the myths of old Hollywood to recent on-screen accidents, the motion picture industry has long been associated with violent and untimely death. Hollywood has always been a magnet for suicides, murders, mysterious accidents and brutal mayhem; the simple fact is that, in the age of motion pictures, human death ahs become an inescapable part of show business. Hollywood Hex is a study of films that have, in one way or another, resulted in death and destruction. Some are directly responsible for the accidental deaths of those involved in their creation; others have caused tragedy indirectly by inspiring occult movements, serial killers, copycat crimes, psychotic behaviour in audiences, or bizarre and freakish coincidences. These "cursed" films include The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, Twilight Zone ・The Movie and The Crow; films that have become notorious and compelling in their new role as inadvertent epitaphs, as documents on the subject of human mortality.
