Amicus was founded by two Americans, Milton Subotsky and Max Rosenberg, and the story of its rise and fall is a fascinating one that has never been told in as full detail as it is in this important new film book. Amicus – The Friendly Face of Fear tells the complete story of Amicus’s 20 year creative period, starting with 50s rock musicals and charting its rise through Dr. Who movies and horror anthologies and prehistoric fantasies like The Land That Time Forgot. You will also learn of the 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 this major independent studio, and every horror fan’s dream.
