The world of Hollywood filmmaking is a strange beast. It can chew up and spit out those who come in with the purest of intentions while also lauding and championing those who will do anything it takes to succeed, even if it means stabbing someone else in the back. It’s not for the faint of heart, that’s for damn sure.
Enter author Tommy Redolfi, who will be releasing his upcoming graphic novel Marilyn’s Monsters later this month. A hallucinatory take on the life of Norma Jean Baker, aka Marilyn Monroe, the book will see her enter a Hollywood Hills that feels wrong and…off.
David Cronenberg (The Fly, Scanners, A History of Violence lauded the book, calling it, “A brilliant, hallucinatory meditation on the phenomenon of Marilyn Monroe. It will alter your understanding of both Hollywood and Marilyn.”
To give you a taste of what this book has to offer, we’ve got an exclusive trailer reveal that you can watch above. We’ve also got several preview pages below.
