Three Rivers Press is set to release Midnight Movie by Tope Hooper and Alan Goldsher in paperback on July 12th.
Description: The good news: Director Tobe Hooper has been invited to speak at a screening of Destiny Express, a movie he wrote and directed as a teenager, but that hasn’t seen the light of day in decades. And Hooper’s fans are ecstatic.
The bad news: Destiny Express proves to be a killer … literally. As the death toll mounts, Tobe embarks on a desperate journey to understand the film’s thirty-year-old origins—and put an end to the strange epidemic his creation has set in motion.
Featuring the terror, humor, and sly documentary style Hooper devotees remember from such classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Midnight Movie is vintage Tobe Hooper, again demonstrating the director’s place as one of the godfathers of modern horror.
Hooper will be at this year’s Comic-Con, signing copies of Midnight Movie from 2-3:30 PM on Thursday, July 21 at the Random House booth.
