Orgy of the Dead

Ed Wood, Jr.


Darkness and a raging storm plunge Bob and Shirley into a nightmare orgy before the death throne of the Prince and Princess of Darkness, forcing them to witness the judgment of the long dead. A screaming banshee, decaying mummy, monstrous undertaker, and wanton voodoo girl are all here in this shamless orgy of the dead.
      Originally published in 1966, and now available for the first time in hardcover (the paperback is a rare and very expensive item), Orgy of the Dead is also known as one of the great camp classics, directed by legend Ed Wood, Jr.
      This first-ever hardcover edition of Orgy of the Dead features new artwork by artist Ben Baldwin. It also features reproductions of the original paperback cover and film poster, and reprints the Forrest J Ackerman introduction from the first edition paperback.
      The book is hardcover with a sewn binding and a printed front panel with the remainder in black cloth. The dustjacket has a die cut oval which reveals part of the image.
