DESCRIPTION:

George Romero s name may be synonymous with the living dead subgenre, but his filmography is far richer and more varied than his reputation as the zombie guy would suggest. Following the breakout success of his debut feature Night of the Living Dead, the director would embark upon a series of projects which, whilst firmly rooted in the horror genre for the most part, demonstrate a master filmmaker with more than mere gut-munching on his mind.

In There s Always Vanilla, Romero s sophomore 1971 directorial effort, young drifter Chris and beautiful model Lynn embark upon a tumultuous relationship which seems doomed from the outset. 1972 s Season of the Witch (originally filmed as Jack s Wife but released to theaters under the title of Hungry Wives) follows the exploits of Joan Mitchell a housewife whose dissatisfaction with her humdrum life leads to an unhealthy interest in the occult. Lastly, 1973 s The Crazies, which sees Romero returning to more straight horror territory, has a small rural town finding itself in the grip of an infection which send its hosts into a violent, homicidal frenzy.

Taken together, these three early works, made in the period between Romero s celebrated living dead outings Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, serve to display the broader thematic concerns and auteurist leanings of a skilled craftsman too often pigeonholed within the genre.

An unearthed scientific secret will bring humanity to its knees.

Aboard a clandestine ship with unparalleled technology, Captain Dominic Holland commands a crew of skilled covert operatives and talented scientific personnel dedicated to fighting biological and chemical warfare.

But a new assignment leads them to a genetic engineering laboratory on an abandoned oil rig where they discover the most disturbing threat to mankind they have ever seen.

Back in the United States, CIA analyst Meredith Webb exposes a frightening connection between the agency she has devoted her life to and the abandoned oil rig.

The zombie sequel to Snow White begins where the classic fairy tale ends, with the Prince's kiss waking Snow from her cursed slumber. Snow wakes up, but she doesn't wake up right.

Now a deranged zombie, Snow infects both the Prince and the seven dwarfs' leader. That leaves the young dwarf Grouchy, who is secretly in love with Snow, to find a cure for her malicious curse. So begins an epic journey that pits the lovesick Grouchy against dwarf-hating human soldiers, Snow's ever-growing zombie horde, and his own bad temper.

But when Grouchy and his motley crew of survivors escape Snow's clutches and seek refuge in a nearby human village, he soon finds that her affliction has spread faster and further then he ever could have imagined. Snow is hell-bent on spreading her horrid curse across the land, and it's up to Grouchy to stop her before it's too late.

For fans of horror, dark fantasy, zombies, and mashups such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies; Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter; Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters; Little Women and Werewolves; Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter; Henry VIII: Wolfman; Jane Slayre.

Available Through November 15 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

In America's heartland, a small farm lies nestled atop a hill, guarded by the dense surrounding forest. The sun rises, and the animals wake; the sun sets, and the animals sleep.
But things are changing. Something has taken up residence in the deep ravine behind the barn. No one has seen it, but they've all heard its cries echoing in the night: a long, mournful howl. And some of the animals have started acting erratic, even violent.
At the center of the change is Brad, the small rooster. New to the chicken coop and more comfortable with humans than with his own kind, Brad struggles to adjust to this strange, structured life. Everything has its place, and all is watched over by the Great Yolk in the sky. Everything, that is, except for Brad, who discovers that he not only doesn't belong, but is also unwelcome. But then unlikely friendships blossom around the farm. As Brad's relationships with his new friends bloom, power-plays and jealousies arise to threaten all that he's accomplished.
All the while, the festering menace in the ravine watches, biding its time, waiting for the right moment to reveal that the animals' true struggle is against evil itself, and it may be a fight that is impossible for them to win.

Inspired by a true story, Home to Roost is touching and beautiful, with a dark twist lurking at its center; a powerful debut novel.

"A heart-wrenching tale of love, mania, fear, and the descent into madness. Chauncey uses simple farm animals to demonstrate the complexities of social pressures, and issues such as love, hate, and death. A beautifully-chilling story, a horrifyingly-addictive read."
-Lara Hues, author of Allies of Ignorance; Arrows; and Archers
