This is the HARDBACK version.


Welcome, fans of horror! Come and learn something new about those that have so welcomingly terrified us over the past few decades!

We see them all the time on screens big and small—those who commit these horrible acts, and some who find the hidden strength and courage to fight them off and save everyone!

But how did they become so? Ever wondered just how a performer could go so smoothly from a warm, friendly member of society into a creation of pure evil that haunts our dreams? Or become a hero or heroine that faces down such malevolence?

Now we can find out.

So many have dazzled and terrified us through decades of horror films. Behind the Screams will show you how. Read about the steps they took to make themselves into naturals in the most unnatural genre of cinema. Learn more about what they did on their own to find within and without the characters they became from the first scream to the end credits!

Neve Campbell and Heather Langenkamp, who turned themselves into true Scream Queens. Tim Curry, whose work in It showed that even TV movies can be terrifying. Brad Dourif, the man who became a killer doll for several rounds of Child’s Play. Those who visited the original Last House on the Left, and the ones who came back in the remake! A few who met their Final Destination. Many who fought Jaws, and some who didn’t win. The freaks we met over a season of American Horror Story, and some we lost in The Walking Dead. Stars of some underrated flicks like Trick ‘r Treat, Escape from Tomorrow, Sick Girl, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, and Dark Night of the Scarecrow.

They’re all here to tell you. To show you how they became icons in a world we all fear and love. You’ve seen their work—now read about it, all the work they did to transform into horror world legend.

Dare to step Behind the Screams.
