“B-B-B-B Bad… Bad to the bone…”
Packed with interviews from director John Carpenter, screenwriter Bill Phillips, producer Richard Kobritz, stars Keith Gordon and Alexandra Paul, plus various members of the cast and crew including co-composer Alan Howarth and SFX artist Roy Arbogast, “Hell Hath No Fury: The Making of Christine” is a definitive look at the 1983 cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying novel about the eponymous demonic Plymouth Fury and the obsessive teenage boy who loves her.
Author Lee Gambin examines Carpenter’s film by exploring themes such as possession, gender politics, sexuality, the use of rock’n’roll, the complexities of varied relationships, class resentment, the landscape of suburbia, the alienation felt during teenage years and more, including a recurring coverage of cars in film (both supernatural and not).
Loaded with photographs as well as production notes, this book is essential for all John Carpenter fans, Stephen King devotees, horror film enthusiasts and for anyone who can remember their first car. So buckle in and take a ride and remember “Rock’n’Roll is here to stay! It will never die!”
