    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.

    I want this one! It will be my second The Exorcist limited, except my first one is a lettered from Gauntlet. I keep wondering how much it's worth...

    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.

    Warning: The cover does not get LESS creepy when you view the larger version!!! I think Caniglia was easily THE BEST choice for someone to create art for a book like The Exorcist!!!

    Yeah, but there's Eaten Alive by Hooper and the inferior Eaten Alive cannibal flick. I liked the Hooper film so much I bought the anniverary edition! It's great.

    Squire. That's my name.

    For a while, I'd search the "Introduction" thread to get people's names, but it's too long to do that anymore. 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.

    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??
