The Art of Horror Movies Signing!
Join us for an EPIC horror signing as authors and artists come together to celebrate THE ART OF HORROR MOVIES: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY at our London Megastore on Saturday 11th November from 12:30 - 2pm.
THE ART OF HORROR MOVIES is a magnificent companion to THE ART OF HORROR, and from the same creative team, this time looking at the entire history of the horror film, from the silent era right up to the latest releases and trends.
