The book covers every step of the filmmaking process (pre-production, production, post-production, and marketing) and is full of the author’s experience and advice. There are also several insightful interviews throughout the book where horror icons such as Stuart Gordon, Robert Englund, and Tom Savini, dispense advice to aspiring filmmakers.
