The lost Mondo Macabro chapter finally in print (well, download print)


On Cinehound forum Pete Tombs once made the mistake of mentioning that due to a lack of space there was a full chapter that didn't make it to the MM book! A chapter on Lollywood cinema (i.e. Pakistani cinema) written by none other than Omar Khan who directed HELL'S GROUND (aka Zibahkhana). It was a mistake (haha) cos it meant I've kept bugging him on Cinehound ever since to put it out on their blog or website! Unfortunately, for some reason MM haven't wanted to do so. The chapter was actually included in the Spanish language edition of the MM book. However, ... lo and behold... Omar Khan has just put out what I believe is that chapter as an eBook (or eMag, whatever) for download! Go here. I can't comment on how good it is as I haven't read it yet (and thanks to Jared for the tip).


  1. Brilliant!
    Thanks Jack!
    That was a pleasant surprise!

  2. You're welcome, and it most certainly is! :D

  3. WOW! Thanks! I wasn't even aware this chapter existed.

    Even if it's propably never going to happen, I still hope Pete Tombs does a second Mondo Macabro book. I mean, there is still so much ground to cover: eastern europe, the middle east, the entire african continent etc.
    But I'm wandering off.

    Thanks again for the info!
