Taking Shape: Developing Halloween From Script To Scream
Halloween Kills, the next entry in the legendary Halloween movie franchise, is right around the corner. So, let’s dive into my thoughts on Taking Shape: Developing Halloween From Script To Scream — a chronological and comprehensive analysis of the entire Halloween series up until this point.
I have both the eBook and audiobook version of Taking Shape. For my first time out, I decided to listen to the audiobook via Audible, and it was fascinating.
The audiobook is 13 hours long, yet I blew through it at a brisk pace because of how compelling it is. The narrator, who has a British accent, did a fine job with the material, even if his cadence was sometimes a tad too quick.
The structure of Taking Shape is interesting, as the reader is provided with a mix of the following: movie summaries; individual interviews with those who worked on the movies or novelizations; film reviews from critics; and more. It keeps things fresh the entire time.
Taking Shape is a must-read (or listen) book for Halloween fans, those who love horror, or simply individuals who enjoy cinema. It’s well researched, well written, exhaustive, and captivating.
