Was thinking about waiting, but once I saw the emails noting how rapidly it was selling out, I figured I better jump on it.

I can't remember right now what number my Exorcist/Legion copy is, but once I check it out will I be able to obtain the same number for the 40th Anniversary Exorcist, assuming the number is low enough to pair them up?

I'm sure you can if it's available. Since it's a Lonely Road book, all the people who purchased the previous title for LRB get first shot at matching their numbers.

Thanks for the info; this is my first LRB purchase so I hadn't realized they had the guaranteed matching number policy for repeat customers (which I think is a very cool customer-oriented policy, though I'm sure at times a bit of a headache to track behind the scenes). Matching numbers or not, I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

This book has been on my "need to get around to reading but for some reason still haven't" list for way too long, so this definitive version should be enough incentive to get me in gear to make reading it a reality for me.

Ordered this one earlier today before the announcement here (CDCC is definitely a nice thing to have). Any news on how close to sold out this one is?

Also, is there any way to know the number of a book you haven't gotten yet? I ask because I have The Vampyricon Trilogy on order that I would like to match numbers with, but that is the first LRB book I've ordered so I don't have a regular number yet

I'm sure you'll enjoy it! A part of this book really surprised me with it's description and made my jaw drop, which is quite rare for me. Can't say I found it scary, but I can say that about everything I have read as I have yet to find a book I consider scary (same with movies)

I bought this one also even though I have the original limited published by Gauntlet in the 90s. But the "revised" part caught my eye just as the limited of Dracula I snagged as well since it's really only the decent limited signed by people other people actually know. If there's any other difference between the orignial limited of Dracula, I'd really like to know!
Anybody??

Really?? You didn't like the movie? Hell it has to be in the top 5 scariest films of all time. Maybe not after you've seen it a dozen times or if you're 50 years old or more, but it still packs a punch more than 35 years after its release. There are several scenes that still gives me chills (and no, I'm no wimp). Well, maybe not so much nowadays, but The Last House on the Left is another sick film, probably sicker than The Exorcist.

frik51
10-24-2011, 04:33 PM
Well, let's say I wasn't really scared by it. Maybe my expectations were too high??
Now, The Last House on the Left I haven't seen yet. Wasn't that a Wes Craven movie?
I don't know if I want to see it.

Really frik? Yeah, it was Craven's first film done in 1972 with the producer being Saun Cunningham of Friday the 13th fame, 8 years later. It has some very brutal scenes in it that are shocking today, I can only imagine what people thought way back then. There's an R rated version and an uncut version. But even the R is bad. A lot of these American horror films are still banned to this day in a lot of parts of the world, silly really. Even Evil Dead. So much for free speech and expression.
You should really give it a try and tell me what you think of it. I wish there was a horror movie site on here...like a slasher category and a "regular" horror movie category.
I'm also a big fan of Italian horror films by Argento, Bava and Fulci among others.I don't know if you even like horror films, but if you do, tell me what kind and I'll give you some recommendations.

Damn lol. You have a lot of films. A lot of yours I also have; love Vincent Price in the Poe adaptions.
But there are some American ones you may like. I looked at most of yours but may have missed some. If you don't have these, get them!
1. Nightmare...AKA Nightmare in a Damaged Brain. The 30th Anniversay DVD was just released.
2. The Gruesome Twosome, Two Thousand Maniacs, Blood Feast, Wizard of Gore, She-Devils on Wheels, and Color Me Blood Red, all by the great Hershall G. Lewis.
3. Rituals
4. If you like slashers, you have to see these: Silent Night, Deadly Night (one of my favorites...constant action and actually a very cool movie with some humor as well), The Prowler, The Mutilator (uncut version..you'd still have to get it on VHS or DVD-r), Scream Bloody Murder lol, a great one...the one with "Matthew" in it from '73, Black Christmas if it could be considered a slasher, Maniac, 1980 version, Madman, Pranks, The House on Soriety Row, A Night to Dismember and Criminally Insane ( you really have to see these two to believe them lmao, but they're 2 of my favorites), Axe...just too many to list! I can look over my vast collection sometimes and give you some more titles.
5. Italian films: Virtually anything by Fulci: my favorites of his are City of the Living Dead, but also Zombie, House of Clocks, The Murder Secret, Touch of Death (you have to see this one), The Beyond (great zombie flick), The New York Ripper (a killer that laughs like a duck lol and very violent as all the Fulci movies I'm typing), House by the Cemetary and Don't Torture a Duckling.
6. Just a few from Bava: The Torturer and A Blade in the Dark. And one Spanish flick I can think of at the moment which is great: Cannibal Man made I think in 1971.
7. If you like cannibal films, then consider these three: Zombie Holocaust (the best), Jungle Holocaust and Make Them Die Slowly (lovely title).

And like I said, I can list more if you've seen these or tell me exactly what type films you really like.

Boring?? I admit there was no constant action, but I wouldn't call it boring. And Last House...it does suck David Hess died. You talk about a guy who made a great villian, that was certainly Hess.

Thanks for your list! So much to choose from.
I used to be really into the hard-core horror stuff, from Fulci to Argento to Lewis to you name it. Not any more. I still like the classic Argento stuff, but cannibals, slashers, torture/horror-porn is out for me.
I much prefer the old Universal classics these days, or the Poe/Price/Corman classics. Some of the Italian masters still work for me. Argento I mentioned, Bava I also like.

Nice list E-Norm! I searched for years for "Make Then Die Slowly." Finally found it under the original title of "Cannibal Ferox." Growing up, I would always see the movie poster on Fridays in The Denver Post (I delivered it as a teen). I was captivated by the banner "Banned in 31 Countries!"--but not in the US! It did more than anything to make me a fan of the movies long before I ever really started watching them religiously!

I thought it was a shit movie, but I wouldn't take it out of my collection for anything!

Ironically, the reason is was banned (and the actual # of countries is not known) was not for any of the scenes of torture and cannibalism, but for the actual cruelty to real animals in the movie.

It's ok frik. I have tons more and I can defintely understand the cannibal thing. I was interested maybe 10 years ago when DVDs came out and that lasted a couple months and haven't seen ones for years, but I stick by saying Zombie Holocauset YOU HAVE TO SEE. And as for Jungle Holocaust...literally think of it as a Tarzan film with some blood lol. It's really not bad, just interesting to see a guy try to survive a bunch of backward savages (that's so politically incorrect of me).I don't like torture films myself (I've never seen any of the "Saw" movies), but I mentioned The Torturer only because I was so surprised Bava would acually make a film like that. I have it but only watched 20 minutes of it and it's truly sick. It's sorta like that sick Indy film Scrapbook, but 10X worse.
But even though you say you don't like slashers, you should really check out Criminally Insane and A Night to Dismember (both only about 60 minutes). They're so absurd you'll laugh out loud through both of them.
Well, Bava you said you liked...maybe you should try his newer ones. Have you ever seen his Macabre? LOL another silly film especially at the end and how they say "true story" lmao. It's more of an insane love story that supposedly based on a true story that happened in the 1970's in Loiusina.
Argento is fantastic, much more brilliant colors and light used in
his movies than Fulci's, and they just looked much more professional. Take a look at Sleepless and Tenebre...the most violent horror films I've ever seen.
You sound like an Italian Giallo fan to me frik (the word Italians use for "Yellow"..I would figure you'd know that frick, just others might not). I can't do it now but if you're interested, I'll go through my vast collection and give you some titles. I can tell you some very good ones...The Killer Inside Me, My Dear Killer, The Black Tarantula, What Ever Happened to Solange?, A Lizard in a Woman's Skin, What Ever Happened to Mrs Ward (I think that's kow you spell ward), The Night Evelyn Came out of The Grave (a favorite of mine, some people hate it though).....and on and on. Or if you want more rare Italian films, let me know. Finally, see Cannibal Man. It's NOT a cannibal film like you're thinking. It's about a story about a guy driven to madness by comitting obscene murder. Just remind me if you're interested or send me a PM if I forget (which I probably will).

Yeah, I always thought that was such an adsurd irony. We just can't have animals killed as those savages have to do to live,
oh no, but it's perfectly ok to tear out the insides of people and eat them. This PC nonsense drives me up the wall!!!!
LOL you think it's shit? That's the one where the guy is under the table and a native slices the top of his head off and starts eating his brain lmao. I have to laugh because I know it was just red colored banasas, not really his brain (of course).
But other decent ones when I was into those films, are Trap Them and Kill Them (more of a cannibal/porn film if that makes sense), Jungle Holocaust (one of the best by far), Zombie Holocaust (THE best and highly recommended if you're into those type films...constant action), Cannibal Holocaust, and there was one that took place in a city that had cannibal in the title which I have but can't recall the title. There's another one where these ape-like things jump out of an airplane in Italy and run amok killing dancers and shit. LOL (But I think they were actually zombie-like cretures who who were messed up with Italian experiments on them). City is also in the title but can't think of it.
And if you're interested in zombie films, one of the best is Let Sleeping Corpses Lie and the French made Grapes of Death. Not too bloody, but just GOOD.
I'm you horror film expert you guys. You want recommendations then just ask ol' Normity (or "E-Norm lol"), literally about anything....cannibals, zombies, slashers, you name it, I got it.

I'm not into cannibal films--it was just that one movie since I watched it every Friday in the DP. I remember a spanish film called (English title) Murders in the Rue Morgue starring the great spanish B-movie actor Paul Naschy in which some of the rats used for the film caught fire during the climatic scene and started scampering all over the set. The cameras just kept on rolling, catching the rats in their final, blazing glory. Cruel, yes, but unintentional. It added a lot to the scene as Naschy tried to dodge them on his way to rescue the heroine. 1972 I belive that was. Aaaaah, Pre-code days. It was banned for a long time because of that scene; most prints have that scene excised.

I've never been a fan of Naschy, but I do have a couple of his films. And like I said the cannibal movie fad I was in maybe 10 years ago, was just that: a fade. You can only watch so many without being turned off by them evetually. Hell they're all the same. But I still insist, you must see the ones I mentioned!!...Jungle Holocaust and Zombie Holocause. Just give them a try. It's not all blood and guts, especially Jungle Holocaust. It's a very interesting film about a guy in a plane crash who ends up being captured by savages. The enire movie is about how he tries to escape...I really like it. But Eaten Alive is in the same type films as Cannibal Holocaust, Make Them Die Slowly and Trap them and Kill Them. But it's pretty good too, but can't compare to the ones I want to see you watch. I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised.
BTW, what name do I call you by??

Jungle Holocaust and Zombie Holocaust have been on my must watch list for awhil now, I just haven't had the time. Eaten Alive was a possibility because it was Tobe Hooper, but I decided not watch it.

theenormityofitall

Caniglia has turned in all of the color interior artwork, and he really went overboard. The original plan was 6 pieces, but there's definitely more than that here. I'm going to break the budget a bit to include ALL of them.

The book is being designed now -- it took forever to get the final files from the trade publisher because they like to drag their feet on these things -- but we're moving along at a good clip now.

Also, a special unannounced bonus for the Lettered Edition customers: there will be entirely different artwork on the Lettered Edition's DJ.

I hope it's bigger than my lettered. It's nice but back then I think they were purposely making books smaller for financial reasons, but they still are not including slipcases for limiteds which I really don't like! It seems only King's Way Press is but the materials are not high quality and I don't think I'll be buying anymore of them (Dracula is the perfect example). Sorry Zach if you see this, but mine was a mess like many others were here.

Every Lonely Road Books title is slipcased or traycased. :) Check out the photos on the website for some samples:

The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Limited Edition will have a 7 X 10 trim size. I don't have the final page count because we're still working on the design, but I'll post it when I do if I remember. :) The text should be VERY readable, though, if you have any concerns about that. These editions are meant to be read (if you want to!).

The few I have from Lonely Road are very nice looking; they remind me of Grant Hardcovers....didn't you also do The New Neighbor by Garton many years ago? I remember getting it cheap when Nick Certo was going out of business (the mail order business) back in the 90's, but it's still in my closet :).

Oh by small I just meant the entire book, I don't need reading glasses yet LOL. I will soon at my age but not just yet. My lettered version looks like it's about 5 by 7 or 8.

No possible way. I mean the very original from Garton where there were only 500 done and I remember reading it wasn't supposed to be re-printed in any other format. It's slipcased and has been sitting on the top shelf in one of my closets for at least 15 years (at least it seems that long, not possible I bought it in 2005).
CD must have done an edition too??

That's right, Charnel House. I was thinking it was Lonely Road....is the former even in business anymore?

But I wish I would of bought CD's version too. Hell maybe I did but can't remember. I bought your version of The Woman by Ketchum even though I have the original limited as well.

Why would you say that ??? I only have ... oh .. yeah ... right ... now I remember .... 13 of them ???? :p

Seriously though, Charnel House do beautiful work, the DRK's I have are Japanese silk bound (including the slipcases) and are works of art :cool:

For me, it was a case of right place, right time ... I picked mine up as a "job lot" at a ridiculous price (I vacillated for a while, will I, won't I, but ultimately couldn't resist as I really like DRK's work - he's not for everyone, sure, but his stuff does speak to me) :cool:

Positive on this one - they're far less expensive than SK's limiteds. Negative - stopping at just one :p I started out wanting only to collect the five from Dark Harvest, then it spread to the four from Cemetery Dance, then a bunch from Putnam, then a bigger bunch from Charnel House. Scott, mate, it's a disease !!!! ;)

theenormityofitall
01-29-2012, 01:34 AM
LOL. I did have one a long time ago but for some reason sent it back, and yep, I know they're a lot cheaper than King's (whose are more expensive???), but that surprises me actually; Koontz is very well known and it wouldn't surprise me if he's written a bunch more novels than King has. And I know some of his stuff has been made into movie because I saw them :)

jester05jk
01-30-2012, 04:39 AM
Koontz movies
Black River
Intensity
Phantoms
Mr. Murder
Watchers (4 of them)
Demon Seed
Servants of Twilight
Hideaway
Frankenstein (had his name removed tho)

I might have missed a few, tired right now.

My first limited ever was Dragon Tears, still one of my top 5 fave books.

theenormityofitall
01-30-2012, 05:15 AM
I saw a couple Koontz limiteds at Betts and damn near bought one. But again, since my main concern is collectibility, I bought a couple signed King books instead.

And like I said previously, I do admire them and they're awesome to look at, so it's not all about money for me. If it was I'd be selling them all, but as of now, I only sold Desperation and The Colorado Kid because the latter was very small and I think I got sent a freak copy and it's probably worth a lot more than I got for it (just $200).

02-18-2012, 04:07 AM
Okay, I know I totally missed out on this, and I asked to be placed on a waiting list. But, if you receive one of these books totally f'd up, pages crinkled, cover smooshed, just totally unsaleable, I will buy it at a reasonable price determined by CD. Just throwing that out there.

Today's update:

http://www.lonelyroadbooks.com/news.html

"The book is designed and being proofread now. We're still right on track for a summer publication date.

As I mentioned last time, originally I planned on having 6 color artwork plates in this special edition, but Caniglia went overboard and turned in 13 (!) color pieces, so I'm breaking the budget and adding all of them to the book.

In addition, Mr. Blatty has provided an introduction and an afterword that won't be appearing in any other edition, so those have been added to the Lonely Road Books special edition as an unannounced bonus.

Finally, there's also a special unannounced bonus for the Lettered Edition customers: because Caniglia turned in so much extra artwork, there will be entirely different artwork on the Lettered Edition's dust jacket.

I'll post more news as I have it, but you can also always email me (http://www.lonelyroadbooks.com/contact.html) if you have any questions."

All three will have a similar style -- the scheme for the binding and stamping, etc, will be similar, for example, although the stamping itself will be a little different for each book to match the design of the book's signature sheets and the title page, etc.

I believe this is an altered edition where the author made a few changes he had wanted in the original, so I think that will certainly make it standout from the text in the CD combined Exorcist/Legion combo.

Hey Tommy shoot Mindy an email. I think we had a couple extra's but I'm not sure if she's sold them already or not. Her email is info@cemeterydance.com or order@cemeterydance.com

Got mine a couple days ago and gotta say it is amazing! Have been in the process of moving, so today is first time I got the chance to get online with my computer. Hope to take some pictures of this soon, but that requires I remember to grab the phone from where it is during the daytime as I would wake my wife up getting it from where it is right now. The book looks great sitting next to the CD printing of The Exorcist and Legion next to it.

It seems to be a pattern with me this year, I think I also snagged the last copy of the s/l Doctor Sleep and thank you, never been so congratulated in all my life :o

I know they only shipped a few days back but has anyone had a chance to read any of it?, I'm interested to see what revisions were made, it was damn near perfect to me when I read it years ago :confused:

I was considering making it my next read, but I will probably read a couple of shorter books first after I finish the long book I am reading right now. One will hopefully be a Goodreads win that has been long delayed in shipping

To anyone who has received theirs already, what you describe as being the feature/s of this edition that make it stand out as a LRB publication as opposed to a CD one?

Looking forward to receiving mine.

Cheers

The most important one is that The 40th Anniverasy Edition has Blatty's revised text; CD's edition has the original published text(along with Legion) plus the interview with Blatty. The production values are both great and the art for both is superb.

In case there are any other schmucks like me who didn't order it when it first was announced and would like a copy, I see that Miskatonic books has one copy for the asking price of $100! Believe me when I say it is worth every penny :cool:

Does the mass market HarperCollins release of the 40th anniversary edition of The Exorcist contain any of the artwork featured in the Lonely Road edition? This may seem like a dumb question, but I'm thinking of the fact that the mass market illustrated Salem's Lot shares the same artwork as Centipede Press' fantastic limited edition.

I'm looking for a copy of The Exorcist and since a Lonely Road copy (which looks fantastic and would be my first choice) is a bit outside my price range (currently available for $140 on eBay right now, lower than I usually see but more than I want to do at the moment), I may go for the ordinary HC release. If that has the great artwork, that may nudge me in that direction.

While on the topic, any thoughts about the text differences between the original and the 40th anniversary edition?

To my knowledge we have had nothing to do with the Harper Collins release. So my guess would be that it doesn't. I don't know for sure though, as I don't hear everything that goes on here, and they could have gone directly to the artist as well.

The Lonely Road Books edition came out after that trade edition, and the artwork for the LRB edition was commissioned specifically for that edition.

Yep, they do! Sometimes you will see other editions that reprint the artwork from a LRB or CD special edition. We never tie-up the artist's rights to their work beyond exactly what rights we need for our edition. It's hard enough to make a living as an artist without publishers reducing your avenues of revenue for no good reason.

Fun Fact: There are some foreign editions of Stephen King books that use OUR covers, which I always think is awesome but confuses some people.

(Also, I know you weren't being critical, I've wanted to post about this topic for a while and never had a chance!)

Brian-

Now that I look again at the LRB Exorcist page, I see the slipcase, traycase, dust jacket, endpapers and interior art, but I don't think I see any actual photos of the book (cover) itself. Maybe I'm being daft - but if not, do you have any such photos? I'd love to see it.
