>Fangoria’s B-Sol reviews Not Bad for A Human


Brian Solomon — dedicated cryptkeeper of the Vault of Horror and correspondent and critic for Fangoria, reviews the new Lance Henriksen biography, Not Bad for A Human.

An intense Method actor, Henriksen struggled through illiteracy and typecasting to become one of the most recognized genre faces of his generation, a throwback to the days of performers like Peter Cushing, Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney. And the journey and triumph is captured here via the voice of Maddrey, whose obvious respect and admiration for his subject comes through on every page. One of the most telling signs, as well as one of the book’s most enjoyable aspects, is Maddrey’s inclusion of large chunks of first-person narration, presumably taken directly from interviews with Henriksen.
