UPM has published a surprisingly large amount of books on the frightful topics of horror film, ghosts, witches, and zombies. And for the past week we've been publishing our staff's favorite Halloween-themed book. Still plenty of time celebrate with a a quick read before Halloween is over.

Emily Snyder Bandy, Assistant to the Director, suggests David Lynch: Interviews for anyone looking for a read that is not too scary.
My love for mysteries is often at odds with my low-tolerance for horror. Luckily, shows like Twin Peaks fall right into the sweet spot of scary, but not too scary. Getting inside the mind of David Lynch may at times feel like spending a night in the Red Room (that gum you like is going to come back in style) , but in David Lynch: Interviews, the confounding director opens up about the TV series, short films like The Grandmother, his Oscar-nominated The Elephant Man or Blue Velvet, and more. Collectively these interviews make for some damn fine reading.
In honor of Twin Peaks returning in early 2017, pick up this volume and read along while you re-watch seasons one and two. I know I will. Maybe this year I’ll even be brave enough to watch Fire Walk with Me. Maybe.
