Description

The credits have rolled, but the lights are still off. Something is lurking on the other side of the screen. There are dark secrets, starving monsters, and haunted survivors who refuse to be left on the cutting room floor. But that's okay, right? After all, everybody loves the movies....

Here are twenty-three terrifying tales, dark reflections of the silver screen from both sides of the camera. James Dean gets a second chance at life--and death. The Wicked Witch is out of Oz, and she's made some very unlucky friends. When God decides reality needs an editor, what--and who--gets cut? These award-winning, bestselling authors will take you to the darkest depths of the theater and beyond.
