FrightFest & FAB Press present The FrightFest Guide To Mad Doctors
The FrightFest Guide to Mad Doctor Movies
By Dr. John Llewellyn Probert
Foreword by Tom Six
Mad medics, sinister surgeons and psychopathic psychiatrists…FrightFest and FAB Press once again join forces to exclusively launch THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO MAD DOCTOR MOVIES, which goes on sale during FrightFest 2023. The author, practising surgeon Dr. John Llewellyn Probert, will be present, with official signings taking place at Cineworld, Leicester Square on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 August.
Ever since the dawn of cinema, filmmakers have been depicting on screen the potential outcomes of medical madness and science gone sick. Now join surgeon, author, film critic and not-at-all-mad Doctor (at least according to him) John Llewellyn Probert as he takes a detailed look at the history of one of the most enduring archetypes in cinema, with an introductory overview of the genre followed by reviews of over 200 key mad doctor movies.
In addition to critical appraisal, the author’s own medical background allows him to provide a unique insight into just how well the filmmakers have done their homework. And who better to provide a foreword then notorious director Tom Six, who shocked filmgoers across the globe with his 100% medically accurate Human Centipede, and its sequels.
So, thrill to monsters and mutations, creatures and creations, horror hospitals, isolated mansions and underground laboratories as we enter a world of research gone rogue, of frightening philosophies and dread disease.
Following the success of the previous six editions: The FrightFest Guide to Exploitation Movies, Monster Movies, Ghost Movies, Werewolf Movies, Grindhouse Movies, and Vampire Movies, this is the latest in a series of wide appeal books for both the curious spectator and the cult connoisseur.
The FrightFest exclusive hardcover will be on sale for just £25, and people not attending he festival, which takes place Thurs 24 August – Mon 28 August, won’t miss out as they have the option to pre-order the book from www.fabpress.com – pre-ordered books will ship the first week of September.
