"It Came from the Video Aisle!" – The Definitive History Of Charles Band’s Full Moon

Charles Band’s Full Moon Entertainment was the most remarkable B-movie studio of the 1990s, responsible for a barrage of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror classics during the last true “golden age” of the home video era.

From Puppetmaster to Trancers and beyond, Full Moon transformed the VHS experience for fans worldwide, bringing the inner workings of the movie-making process into the living room, and in turn creating a ravenous fanbase that remains to this day.

This book tracks the history of the company, from its late ’80s birth among the ruins of the American drive-in through to its bid to survive in the modern digital world.

Featuring rare artwork, behind-the-scenes photos, and over 60 exclusive interviews with the cast and crew who helped to create the legendary B-movie studio, this is an essential read for any cult film fan still lamenting the death of the “mom ‘n pop” video store.

In case you didn’t know I’m a HUGE fan of Charles Band’s work, I even did a write up called “My Love For Full Moon Features” (which you can read HERE) so you can imagine my excitement for this book.
The book is advertised as having 480 pages and selling at $34.99, hopefully it will have a UK release as well or I’m going to have to pay a ton for shipping because this is a DEFINITE purchase for me.

This looks it’s aiming for more than the Full Moon audience and is going for Horror fans and VHS fans, if you’re a fan of film in general and grew up in the rental heyday then it might be worth checking out anyway.

Are you excited for this release? If so you can preorder it on Amazon (HERE), I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a UK release.
