About the books:
Edited by filmmaker Christian Ackerman (Portal/Deadly Reunion), the first My Favorite Horror Movie went on to become a #1 Amazon Bestseller for several weeks in 2018. To assist in editing and curating the next two installments, My Favorite Horror Movie 2: The New Blood and My Favorite Horror Movie 3: Scream Warriors, Ackerman secured the help of horror legend Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp/Victor Crowley) and writer Chuck Foster (The Summoners), to bring the world 100 new essays by horror filmmakers, actors, writers, directors, painters, musicians, journalists, and film festival directors about the film that drove their passion for horror and helped shaped their lives.
