Brad Sykes discusses and signs Terror in the Desert


Set in the American Southwest, "desert terror" films combine elements from horror, film noir and road movies to tell stories of isolation and violence. For more than half a century, these diverse and troubling films have eluded critical classification and analysis. Highlighting pioneering filmmakers and bizarre production stories, the author traces the genre's origins and development, from cult exploitation ( The Hills Have Eyes, The Hitcher) to crowd-pleasing franchises ( Tremors, From Dusk Till Dawn) to quirky auteurist fare ( Natural Born Killers, Lost Highway) to more recent releases ( Bone Tomahawk, Nocturnal Animals.)
