From acclaimed film magazine Electric Sheep comes a bold new anthology of writing from cinema's sharpest edge. From the gutter to the avant-garde, The End brings together a mind-bendingly eclectic programme of films, authors, artists and directors to create a unique new vision of cinema past, present and future. Taking The End as its theme, this collection of previously unpublished writing includes essays on the bad girls in 50s exploitation films, David Lynch s soundtracks of decay, apocalyptic evangelical cinema, Spanish zombies and the Franco dictatorship, Ingmar Bergman s visions of the end and Henri-Georges Clouzot s lost masterpiece Inferno. The fascinating world of Nigeria's 'Nollywood' is investigated through a controversial film on child witches, End of the Wicked; Japanese enfant terrible Kôji Wakamatsu, director of some of '60s Japan's most nihilistic, sexually and politically charged films, gives a rare interview, while filmmakers including the Brothers Quay, Peter Whitehead and Vincenzo Natali comment on a final shot of their choice. Graphic work includes visual essays on Romero s The Night of the Living Dead and Bill Morrison s Decasia, as well as specially commissioned illustrations from new artists.
