Synopsis: Here is a travelogue for those whose idea of a perfect vacation doesn't involve amusement parks and tourist traps, a guidebook for fans of horror and the macabre. Ride along with the author to ghoulish destinations, such as where fright flicks like Friday the 13th and Jaws were filmed, Jeffrey Dahmer's childhood home, UFO crash sites, and macabre graves, to name a few. See the sites in over 70 vivid color photos. Fifteen states were visited from Maine to Georgia in search of iconic filming locations from movies such as The Exorcist, Silence of the Lambs, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Evil Dead. Along the way, monsters were hunted, vampire graves tracked down, a strange mix of paranormal and odd locations across the Eastern US were visited, and Stephen King was met. Hitch a ride, but remember that you never know what you might find--or what might find you!

About the Author: A professional photographer, writer, and fan of all things macabre, Tony Urban spent the past five years traveling the country to visit filming locations from his favorite scary movies, trying to track down beasts like Bigfoot and the Jersey Devil, and finding the strangest sites possible along the way. A lifelong horror fan, Tony is a native of Somerset, Pennsylvania, and worked for nearly a decade writing for magazines and as a screenwriter in the motion picture industry before opening his photography studio in 2006. His photography has been published internationally in magazines and books. Tony can frequently be found traveling the countryside in search of his next great adventure with his dogs and his best friend, Sharon, at his side. He's also more than a little obsessed with the works of Stephen King.
