DieDieBooks Launching a New Line Of Killer Horror Movie Books

“Horror fans not only consume culture, they create it,” said co-founder of DieDieBooks Nick Toti, “so we wanted to create a series of books that feels very participatory.

No one’s perspective on horror movies’ is valued more than the fandom that keeps the genre alive, so a series of books diving into their own insight written by notorious boils and ghouls of the horror fan squad seems only fitting that this exists for not only us to consume, but the Horror Class as a whole.

Each book is illustrated in hauntingly perfect form by famed dark artist Andy Sciazko. The books include a deep dive on the Hooper vs. Spielberg debate surrounding Poltergeist written by author Jacob Trussell, and a primer on the nuclear apocalypse film Threads written by nuclear scholar and activist Bob Mielke. We also have a queer perspective on the controversial slasher Sleepaway Camp by BJ and Harmony Colangelo. For Universal fans, a portrait of Lon Chaney Jr.’s mental anguish
during his performance in The Wolfman by Philip J Reed, and a love letter to The Love Witch written by filmmaker and editor Matt Latham.

The idea for DieDieBooks came from screenwriter Rachel Kempf, who previously worked at an erotic romance publisher. “I wasn’t a huge fan of romance, but I understand the appeal of genre writing because I love horror,” Kempf said. “It’s a genre with incredibly devoted fans, so we
wanted to create our own press and connect with readers who share that love of horror.”

DIY filmmaker Nick Toti also adds, These books are not only fun to read since they draw so heavily from the authors’ own backgrounds and
expertise, but will hopefully also inspire readers to chase their own horror movie obsessions and add their voices to the conversation.”

Toti and Kempf, who are married, recently relocated from Los Angeles to rural Missouri to build their horror empire DieDieMedia—a parent company that not only publishes books, but also produces horror movies/documentaries and will release its first feature in 2023.

Indie press DieDieBooks is currently raising funds
on Kickstarter to publish the series. The first five books are available as
perks on Kickstarter for donors to the campaign. The Kickstarter campaign will end on Oct. 31st, 2022. To make a contribution or learn moreabout the project, visit DieDieBooks on Kickstarter.


Don’t get caught on Billy’s naughty list! Perhaps those that contribute to this fantastic Kickstarter will be spared from a pair of antlers through the gut.

The producers of Silent Night, Deadly Night have teamed up with horror merch stalwart Fright-Rags to create a tabletop game based on the 1984 Christmas slasher classic. It’s available to pre-order through Kickstarter.

Working as a team, 1-4 players will need a strategy, bravery, and a little luck to stop murderous Santa Billy from reaching St. Mary’s Home for Orphaned Children! Roll the dice and make your move while Billy stalks along his path. Collect weapons, roadblocks, and snowballs to help your fight — and when that time comes, flick the spinner to determine your fate!

The board features five “kill zones” with new illustrations by Justin Osbourn, which will be revealed throughout the campaign. A deck of 30 action cards guarantees each game is unique, while a reversible board with a “naughty” drinking game version is available exclusively on Kickstarter.
“Over the last decade, the market for Silent Night, Deadly Night merchandise has exploded, meaning fans are still celebrating the film all these years later,” says executive producer Scott Schneid. “Adding a board game to the SNDN merch-verse is the perfect way for fans to experience the film in a new way.”

Schneid and fellow executive producer Dennis Whitehead are producing a 2022 reboot of the film alongside Anthony Mas, who led the design of the game. “It’s easy to learn, quick to play, and different each time you play,” notes Masi. “The Kickstarter features the exclusive ‘Naughty & Nice’ version, which offers a really fun spin on how the game is played.”

Fright-Rags founder Ben Scrivens adds, “I was really excited when the SNDN team approached us about working together on the board game, as we had already been thinking of entering that space. Anthony’s concept was already solid, so we had fun discussing all the different design elements and ways to make it even more fun and unique.”
