Ad Nauseum Relives Horror’s Glory Days

Ad Nauseum Relives Horror’s Glory Days

Michael Gringold’s Ad Nauseam: Newsprint Nightmares From the 1980s is coming, and will give us an in-depth look at horror movie advertising in the age of Jason, Mike, and Freddy.

Gringold’s book presents over 450 newspaper ads for classic eighties horror flicks like The Evil Dead, Re-Animator, and the Friday the 13th series—as well as plenty of not-so-classic offerings. Ad Nauseum also includes review excerpts and interviews with industry insiders.

Gringold knows of which he writes. He has been a writer and editor for Fangoria and Rue Morgue, and also authored The Frightfest Guide to Monster Movies.

Ad Nauseum will be previewed on July 22 at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, and will be officially published in October.
