Midnight Movie

A Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The good news: Director Tobe Hooper has been invited to speak at a screening of Destiny Express, a movie he wrote and directed as a teenager, but that hasn’t seen the light of day in decades. And Hooper’s fans are ecstatic.
The bad news: Destiny Express proves to be a killer . . . literally. As the death toll mounts, Tobe embarks on a desperate journey to understand the film’s thirty-year-old origins—and put an end to the strange epidemic his creation has set in motion. 
Featuring the terror, humor, and sly documentary style Hooper devotees remember from such classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Midnight Movie is vintage Tobe Hooper, again demonstrating the director’s place as one of the godfathers of modern horror.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 18, 2011 – Lauded screenwriter and director Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) debuts with a movie-like novel featuring a fictionalized Tobe Hooper. At a screening of Hooper's first film, the obscure Destiny Express, audience members exhibit bizarre behavior and soon hot zones of aberrance low-grade terrorism, zombies, STD-induced hypersexual mania begin to spread across America. The only thing the various Case Zeroes have in common is having been present for that fateful screening. Hooper and his diverse cast may be the only ones who can bring an end to the plague they inadvertently helped unleash. Hooper leaps from one viewpoint character to the next, never lingering on one scene long enough for the reader to become bored or for the characters to become developed. Though constrained by the conventions of the genre, Hooper demonstrates an undeniable talent, using established horror tropes with considerable skill and ingenuity.
