BAD BLOOD: ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO PSYCHO CINEMA TP

by Christian Fuchs

Serial killers, mass murderers, killer couples, and human cannibals. 20th century history is fraught with the atrocious, apparently motiveless acts of violence perpetrated by these psychopathic outsiders. As the century progressed, the media coverage of their appalling crimes widened, and these characters ultimately directly inspired movie directors and producers, resulting in some of the biggest grossing (financially and viscerally) movies ever made. Covering hundreds of films including Badlands, American Psycho, Fatal Attraction, Hannibal, Natural Born Killers, and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Bad Blood delves into the controversial realm of life imitating art, taking us on a trip into not only the darkest recesses of human existence, but also one of the most exciting and disturbing zones of cinema.

Now, as an ancient and forbidden technology tempts mankind once more, Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise must probe deep into the secrets of the past to discover the true origins of the dreaded Eugenics Wars, and of perhaps the greatest foe he has ever faced.
