AMICUS: THE FRIENDLY FACE OF FEAR

Amicus: The Friendly Face of Fear tells the complete story of Amicus’s illustrious 20 year creative period, starting with 50s rock musicals and charting its rise through Dr Who movies, horror anthologies and prehistoric fantasies like The Land That Time Forgot. The book also goes into detail of behind-the-scenes troubles that eventually tore the company apart, leading to a bitter and extended legal battle between the two former partners. Profusely illustrated in full colour throughout, with never-before-published stills, posters, lobby cards, flyers, candid photographs and unused artwork, this lavish book is the definitive history of a major independent studio, and every horror fan’s dream. The Book is also available in our exclusive new Amicus Bundle, which also features the Amicus Box Set, a T-shirt, 4 Enamel Pin Collection, and Picture Frame.

Large format, 164 pages.
