book review by David Ng
Tinseltown is a nightmare factory, or so youíll come to believe after reading Hollywood Hex, a new book that documents how movies can sometimes assume a life of their own and mercilessly devour those closest to them. Author Mikita Brottman assembles a list of eclectic films starting with Rosemaryís Baby and ending with The Crow. But the focal points of fascination seem to lie in two of the most disturbing films of the 1970ís: Roman Polanskiís Macbeth and William Friedkinís The Exorcist.
