     Brian De Palma: Interviews (Conversations with Filmmakers)
Publisher: University Press of Mississippi
Author(s):

Brian De Palma (b. 1940) isn't your average Hollywood director.

For years he reigned as the "master of the macabre," the man who massacred the class of '76 in Carrie and stalked Angie Dickinson in Dressed to Kill. By the mid-1980s De Palma found himself assaulting his audience and critics, daring them to watch a chainsaw enter a man's skull in Scarface and a power drill disembowel a defenseless woman in Body Double.

What drove De Palma to such extremes? In the late 1960s, he wanted to be the next Jean-Luc Godard and revolutionize American cinema. Instead, he found himself ostracized when Warner Bros. removed him from Get to Know Your Rabbit, his first Hollywood feature. De Palma sought the refuge of Alfred Hitchcock until the late 1970s (Sisters, Obsession), when his surreal approach to horror became a genre unto itself (Carrie, The Fury, Dressed to Kill). Ironically, just as De Palma achieved the success that his fellow Movie Brats George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg had enjoyed since the mid-1970s, he could not hide his resentment toward Hollywood. After battling with the MPAA in the 1980s, he gradually became part of the mainstream with the success of The Untouchables and Mission: Impossible, although he never suppressed his desire to make audiences aware of his camera-eye and his dark, penetrating worldview.

Brian De Palma: Interviews follows De Palma's fortunes as he makes the difficult transition from underground filmmaker to celebrity auteur. In profiles and q&a interviews, he emerges as a fascinating figure of excess and ambivalence. De Palma is not afraid to share his opinions about censorship, violence, feminism, American culture, and the fate of cinema in the twenty-first century.

Laurence F. Knapp, an instructor of film studies at Northwestern University, is the author of Directed by Clint Eastwood.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag delivers a double shot of suspense in these two adrenaline-charged classic thrillers offered together in one powerful volume.

NIGHT SINS

A peaceful Minnesota town is about to face its worst nightmare. A young boy disappears and the only clue is a note?taunting and casually cruel. Has a cold-blooded kidnapper struck? Or is this the reawakening of a long-quiet serial killer? For a tough-minded investigator, it?s her first make-or-break case. For a local cop, it?s the fear that big-city evil has come to stalk his small-town home. Together they?ll hunt a madman who knows no bounds and for whom no sin is forbidden.

?Nerve-shattering, explosive entertainment, and should not be missed by anyone who reads for the thrill of it.? ?Michael Palmer

But when a second boy vanishes, a frightened public demands to know if the police have caught the wrong man. Is the nightmare continuing?or just beginning? Prosecutor Ellen North believes she has the right man?but that he has an accomplice in the shadows. Ellen suddenly finds herself swept into a cruel contest of wits, a dark game of life and death? with an evil mind as guilty as sin.

     Restructuring Territoriality: Europe and the United States Compared
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s):

Is globalization and European integration transforming the basic structure of politics in European nations? Is it eroding basic institutions like national sovereignty, citizenship, social security, and democracy? Is the European Union (EU) a new kind of political institution, differing from a traditional national state? The essays in this volume find that European integration and internationalization has transformed political institutions and styles of governing. However, they argue as well that the U.S. offers important insights into the way EU politics and institutions work.

     Shock Value: How a Few Eccentric Outsiders Gave Us Nightmares, ConqueredHollywood, and Invented Modern Horror
Publisher: Penguin Press HC, The
Author(s): Jason Zinoman

An enormously entertaining account of the gifted and eccentric directors who gave us the golden age of modern horror in the 1970s, bringing a new brand of politics and gritty realism to the genre.

Much has been written about the storied New Hollywood of the 1970s, but at the same time as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Francis Ford Coppola were making their first classic movies, a parallel universe of directors gave birth to the modern horror film-aggressive, raw, and utterly original. Based on unprecedented access to the genre's major players, The New York Times's critic Jason Zinoman's Shock Value delivers the first definitive account of horror's golden age.

By the late 1960s, horror was stuck in the past, confined mostly to drive-in theaters and exploitation houses, and shunned by critics. Shock Value tells the unlikely story of how the much-disparaged horror film became an ambitious art form while also conquering the multiplex. Directors such as Wes Craven, Roman Polanski, John Carpenter, and Brian De Palma- counterculture types operating largely outside the confines of Hollywood-revolutionized the genre, exploding taboos and bringing a gritty aesthetic, confrontational style, and political edge to horror. Zinoman recounts how these directors produced such classics as Rosemary's Baby, Carrie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Halloween, creating a template for horror that has been imitated relentlessly but whose originality has rarely been matched.

This new kind of film dispensed with the old vampires and werewolves and instead assaulted audiences with portraits of serial killers, the dark side of suburbia, and a brand of nihilistic violence that had never been seen before. Shock Value tells the improbable stories behind the making of these movies, which were often directed by obsessive and insecure young men working on shoestring budgets, were funded by sketchy investors, and starred porn stars. But once The Exorcist became the highest grossing film in America, Hollywood took notice.

The classic horror films of the 1970s have now spawned a billion-dollar industry, but they have also penetrated deep into the American consciousness. Quite literally, Zinoman reveals, these movies have taught us what to be afraid of. Drawing on interviews with hundreds of the most important artists in horror, Shock Value is an enthralling and personality-driven account of an overlooked but hugely influential golden age in American film.

     The Devil's Candy: The Anatomy Of A Hollywood Fiasco
Publisher: Da Capo Press
Author(s): Julie Salamon

When Brian De Palma agreed to allow Julie Salamon unlimited access to the film production of Tom Wolfe's best-selling book The Bonfire of the Vanities, both director and journalist must have felt like they were on to something big. How could it lose? But instead Salamon got a front-row seat at the Hollywood disaster of the decade. She shadowed the film from its early stages through the last of the eviscerating reviews, and met everyone from the actors to the technicians to the studio executives. They'd all signed on for a blockbuster, but there was a sense of impending doom from the start?heart-of-gold characters replaced Wolfe's satiric creations; affable Tom Hanks was cast as the patrician heel; Melanie Griffith appeared mid-shoot with new, bigger breasts. This riveting insider's portrait provides a timeless account of an industry where art, talent, ego, and money combine and clash on a monumental scale.

     The Homopolar Handbook: A Definitive Guide to Faraday Disk & N-Machine Technologies
Publisher: Integrity Research Inst
Author(s): Thomas Valone

The mysterious Unipolar Dynamo, so simple that even the earth's core has one, so powerful that it forges metal alloy billets and launches a rail gun! This handbook has all the history, operating principles, practical construction details, and pictures of Faraday disk/unipolar/homopolar generators. Investigating the Paulsen UFO story and the DePalma claims of overunity, the author began an earnest scientific endeavour in 1980 to build and test a homopolar generators (HPG) for the elusive 'back torque' which had never been measured before in a one-piece HPG. This project helped to complete his Master's Degree in Physics at SUNY Buffalo. What does the torque push against when the magnet spins with the disk? How can the back torque or armature reaction be diminished or counteracted? These and other burning questions are answered in the only book of its kind on the subject of homopolar generators.

     Peasants and Religion (Routledge Studies in Development and Society)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s): Mats Lundahl, Jan Lundius

This book examines the relationship between economics, politics and religion through the case of Olivorio Mateo and the religious movement he inspired from 1908 in the Dominican Republic. The authors explore how and why the new religion was formed, and why it was so successful. Comparing this case with other peasant movements, they show ways in which folk religion serves as a response to particular problems which arise in peasant societies during times of stress.

     Shock Value [Hardcover]
Publisher: Gerald Duckworth & Co Ltd (19 Jan 2012)
Author(s): Jason Zinoman

Review 'SHOCK VALUE chronicles a period that feels both close and remote...a brave, uncompromising era in genre filmmaking. Mavericks, madmen, mutants and monsters populate this book. Vivid, fascinating and entirely relevant.' --Guillermo del Toro, Director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth 'Where Shock Value excels is in its primary research, the stories of how the seminal shockers of this era came to be, told in large part by the men (and here and there a woman) who made them.' --New York Times 'Zinoman succeeds monstrously well.' Entertainment Weekly. -- 'A valuable addition to the canon of popular film history.' Kirkus Reviews. -- 'Jason Zinoman makes a...compelling case for the effect that Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper, William Friedkin and others had on popular culture by reinventing the horror film.' --Evening Standard Product Description Hollywood in the 1970s is usually means directors such as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola. But, this decade was also horror's 'golden age', producing classics like Rosemary's Baby, Carrie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween by directors who would become famous and achieve massive box office success. Ever since, horror has been a crucial and inventive part of cinema. Shock Value describes how horror was re-created, ridding itself of the old supernatural cliches and instead portraying serial killers, extreme and baseless violence, and the fear that can be found in everyday suburbia. Jason Zinoman draws on interviews with hundreds of the most important artists in horror and has created a character-focused account of how an often overlooked, but highly influential, golden age in American film began.
