Dark Visions: A Conversation with Michael McDowell

Following up his collection of "conversations" with horror writers in Dark Dreamers, Stanley Wiater returned in 1992 with Dark Visions, a collection focused on masters of horror film.

Included within this collection:

Clive Barker, John Carpenter, Larry Cohen, Roger Corman, Wes Craven, David Cronenberg, Robert Englund, Stuart Gordon, Gale Anne Hurd, Michael McDowell, Caroline Munro, William F. Nolan, Vincent Price, Sam Raimi, George Romero, Tom Savini, Dick Smith, Joseph Stefano, Stan Winston, Kevin Yagher, Brian Yuzna, Paul M. Sammon

In McDowell's interview, he touches on quite a few topics such as his transition from horror novels to screenwriting and a book in the works with Harry O. Morris (Toplin) titled Revolt of the Bondage Models. He also mentions The Amulet was first drafted as a screenplay, not a novel, and that his sister was working with his partner on adapting The Elementals into a screenplay!

The book is definitely worth checking out, not just for McDowell. It's available now on Kindle for a low $1.99. Click here for the Amazon page.
