In horror movies, even the tools of the tree surgeon have become passé. Besides, why risk industrial deafness dispatching virgins with a chainsaw when you can use an egg beater, a deer antler, and yes, even an umbrella instead?
Death by Umbrella: The 100 Weirdest Horror Movie Weapons is a fun-filled romp through the world of gore weaponry. Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner explore a variety of very odd weapons that have helped people meet their maker in horror films. These include deer antlers, exercise machines, curling irons, ears of corn and even basketballs thrown at high velocity (!)
A must for horror fans,the book also features some really cool (and gory) illustrations and even a foreword by Troma legend Lloyd Kaufman.
Authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner are Toronto horror journalists and hosts of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, a weekly celebration of low budget genre film.
