Product description

About the Author

While he still has a day job in IT, Hal C F Astell is a teacher by blood and a writer by inclination, which gradually morphed him into a movie reviewer. He writes primarily for Apocalypse Later, his movie review site, but also for others who ask nicely.

Born and raised in the rain of England, he’s still learning about the word ‘heat’ after nine years in Phoenix, AZ, where he lives with his better half, Dee, in a house full of assorted critters.

Just in case you care, his favourite movie is Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste, his favourite actor is Warren William and he thinks Carl Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc is the best movie ever made. He’s always happy to talk your ears off about the joys of precodes, fifties B pictures or Asian horror movies.

He’s usually easy to find at film festivals, conventions and events because he’s likely to be the only one in a kilt. He’s friendly and doesn’t bite unless asked.

Velvet Glove Cast in Iron is his second book, published alongside the first, Huh? An A-Z of Why Classic American Bad Movies Were Made.
