Cinema can be defined as the art of performed acting, intended to entertain an audience. Most people think of cinema as being of a very recent origin. In its true entirety, cinema is however, an ancient entity that has existed for three millennia at least. It could have existed prior to beginnings of our organized societies and settlements at least during the time when humans were still populating planet earth, but its modern inception can be thought of as originating during the late 1800s. Cinema has always been one of the most important mediums of communicating a theme through visuals and acts. It serves as the approach of convincing people on a certain topic; and that is why we have movies and motion pictures on a wide variety of genres and topics. Cinema has primarily been a medium of education and entertainment, both served with a well-intended purpose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

Welcome to the Woodfield Movie Palace. The night the Titanic sank, it opened for business...and its builder died in his chair. In the 1950s, there was a fire; a balcony full of people burned to death. And years later, when it became the scene of one of Harmony, Indiana's most notorious murders, it closed for good. Abandoned, sealed, locked up tight...until now. Tonight, Professor Geoffrey Burke and his Parapsychology students have come to the Woodfield in search of evidence, hoping to find irrefutable proof of a haunting. Instead, they will discover that, in this theater, the terrors are not confined to the screen.Cinema of Shadows is one of the growing Harmony, Indiana collection of horror tales from Michael West that also includes Spook House, Goodnight, For the River is Wide and the Gods are Hungry, and The Wide Game. 1.

Introduction by Stephen King, afterword by Tobe Hooper, cover art by Clive Barker. For this special audio version, the introduction and afterword are by Joe R. Lansdale, and the stories are read by Garris mainstays Matt Frewer, Miguel Ferrer, Steven Weber, and the author himself. A Life in the Cinema is the first book from award-winning filmmaker Mick Garris. It is a collection of eight prickly tales that reach under the skin of real life and reel life to take you places you never realized you wanted to go. The title story "A Life in the Cinema" and its sequel "Starfucker", are set in the author's hometown of Hollywood and provide a yellow-jaundiced look at a world you only thought was glamorous.As Stephen King, in his introduction, says: "Here is a real Hollywood insider writing about the real inside world of filmmaking: the good, the bad, and the cheesy. These stories are both erotic and cynical, but they are, above all, well and fiercely told - when he's yarning about the tarnished tinsel underbelly of the town he knows (and clearly loves) the best, Mick Garris writes like a combination of Robert Bloch and James Ellroy, hard-boiled noir with a ghastly little prink of the devil's own pitchfork."Not all of the stories are Hollywood-based: Garris includes tales of a grandmother who is just as loving in death as she was in life, a geriatric trailer park with a randy secret, wistful and impossible love with a twist, the wrong kind of baby love, and a deathly brush with fame. So, welcome to a dark side of Hollywood you've never seen before... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe R. Lansdale, Mick Garris, Steven Weber, Matt Frewer, Miguel Ferrer.
