With the ink dry on the contracts (and about a quarter of the text written) I can announce my next book. No, it's not the interminably-delayed Elsa Lanchester biography (though I will finish that one day, I promise). My current project is a book simply called The British Horror Revival, to be published by Hemlock Books in 2012, in which I document, review and contextualise about a hundred British horror films released between 1998 and 2008.
I'm really enjoying writing this and it's giving me a great excuse to catch up with some of the titles which have passed me by. Most of these movies have had little if any coverage and certainly there's been no overall look at the recent explosion of horror film production in the UK or the thematic elements shared by most of the better movies. So hopefully this will break completely new ground and introduce people to a bunch of recent films they weren't aware of.
