Book Description

6 April 2009 101
As any horror fan knows, the genre isn't limited to ghouls, blood, and gore, but is as broad as cinema itself. Discover the haunting pull of "the other side" in movies like The Sixth Sense, Cat People, Poltergeist and Don't Look Now. Brave the perils of nature in Jaws, The Birds, and Alien. Learn that people aren't always as they seem, as in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Peeping Tom, Psycho, and The Shining. Confront evil in human form--The Last House on the Left, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Friday the 13th--and in its purer distillation in Rosemary's Baby, The Omen and The Exorcist.101 Horror Films You Must See Before You Die gives you a thorough appreciation of the genre, because it approaches the subject chronologically. You'll move through gothic classics like James Whale's The Old Dark House (1932) and Terence Fisher's Dracula (1958), to zombie movies like Dawn of the Dead (1978) and 28 Days Later (2002). All the sub-genres are covered too, from Eyes Without a Face (mad scientist), The Howling (werewolf), Nightmare on Elm Street (slasher), to The Silence of the Lambs (serial killer). And you'll learn that it's not just American teenagers who are horror-film fodder. There are classic horror films from Japan (Onibaba), Russia(Vij), Italy (Suspiria), France (Les Diaboliques), Belgium (Man Bites Dog), Germany (M), and the Netherlands (The Vanishing). Immerse yourself in the most compelling of movie genres. Prepare to be possessed--and whatever you do, don't answer the phone...

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read 23 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
The perfect book for film and horror fans alike, Not the most detailed of books but the art work is amazing and it makes for an easy pick up and read book.

The movies on offer are some of the classics some newer some from the early days of cinema and some foreign movies making this an all round book that leaves few essentials out

3.0 out of 5 stars plot spoilers! 21 May 2011
Format:Paperback
A neat little book with good poster reproduction but it's full of spoilers and reveals the endings of so many of the films featured it should be called "1001 horror movies you don't need to see anymore".
