Must-own book My Favorite Horror Movie now available on Amazon

The first horror movie we all watched as kids really is a special moment, isn't it? I remember my first horror movie was SCREAM. I was staying the night at my cousin's house, and my aunt was infinitely more flexible with the films she let me, watch versus what my parents allowed through the check out counter at Blockbuster.

Needless to say, SCREAM horrified the hell out of little Mike and scared me off of horror movies for years. Until I saw EVIL DEAD 2 in late high school. It was all downhill from there. And if you cherish the memory of your first horror movie then you might want to check out My Favorite Horror Movie: 48 Essays by Horror Creators on the Film That Shaped Them.
