About the Author

J. A. Kerswell fell in love with the slasher movie after watching Halloween II (1981) at an impressionable age. It's a love he's been unable to shake through the best and very worst the subgenre has had to offer. Founder of the slasher movie website Hysteria Lives! (www.hysteria-lives.co.uk), which has been reporting on "slasher trash with panache" for over a decade, he knows more about the slasher movie than anyone should.

From Pop Culture Guy Blog: Horror fans of the golden age of slasher films will want to devour the just released book from author J.A. Kerswell, The Teenage Slasher Movie Book (CompanionHouse Books). The is the 2nd revised and expanded edition of the book and runs over 200 pages. Kerswell traces the evolution of the genre, from the films that inspired slashers to the current day, with an emphasis on the aforementioned golden age, from the early to mid 1980s. Of course, Halloween, Friday the 13th, and the Nightmare on Elm Street series receive much attention throughout and deservedly so. Indeed, Michael Myers, Mrs, Voorhees, Jason Voorhees and Freddie Krueger have captivated viewers for decades and Michael is still on the hunt when he returns in Halloween later this month. What sets The Teenage Slasher Movie Book apart from similar releases is the emphasis not only on American films, but also those from around the world. That adds to the comprehensive nature of this release and allows for a more cosmopolitan perspective. The book also includes film reviews, box office figures, enduring actors and actresses who appeared in various slasher films, and a chapter on the top ten body counts. In addition, the author includes countless pieces of artwork and photos from the featured slasher films, along with a glossary of popular terms and suggestions for further exploration of other books and websites. With Halloween fast approaching, The Teenage Slasher Movie Book is a fun, educational and festive way to celebrate the holiday and revisit this entertaining and enduring film genre.--Pop Culture Guy
