SYNOPSIS:
An autobiographical chronicle on the making of director J.R. Bookwalter’s first 10 movies, from the promising highs of freshman Super-8mm debut The Dead Next Door in 1985 to the embarrassing lows of the shot-on-video Humanoids from Atlantis in 1992, and everything in-between. In true independent fashion, Bookwalter paints a humbling, honest portrayal of what it was like to produce and market no-budget movies during a challenging time for the home video business, reflecting on early partnerships with Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead) and David DeCoteau (Puppet Master III, Creepozoids). Now completely revised with all-new content, additional never-before-seen photos, artwork, and more!

(The Dead Next Door, Witchouse 2: Blood Coven)

with introduction by David DeCoteau
(Puppet Master III, Creepozoids)
and foreward by Zanesville Times-Recorder
film critic Thomas Brown

REVIEWS:
"Bookwalter is an excellent storyteller and holds nothing back in this warts-and-all diary of sorts that chronicles both his greatest successes and most embarrassing failures with a balanced hand, checking his ego at the door. He is the first to admit mistakes made both on-set and in his personal life, but knows this knowledge will be beneficial to readers so he humbly shares the info, good and bad."
