Only one film in book we had not already seen. The description for each film offered little more than could be gleaned from an average review and significantly less than a quick search on wikipedia.

A nice little book. Nothing spectacularly good, but nice.

Good Intro Into Asian Horror 31 Mar. 2014
By Jenny Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a great introduction for those unfamiliar with Asian Horror or those who want to dig little deeper into its beginnings.

I have some criticisms, though. The book primarily focuses on J-horror and divulged very little into Korean, Chinese/Hong Kong and Thai horror. While it is true that J-horror is king, Korean horror is also extremely popular, and Thai and Hong Kong are equally weighted in great themes.

The book goes over some great films, but sometimes it feels like the writer is reviewing them rather than digging into their deeper meanings.

This is a fantastic book for beginning the journey, but for those who have a little background on the subject, it's just a light review.
good read 2 May 2012
By Norrin Radd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a good read not great. It does get a bit slow at times unless you have an idea about all the movies that it is speaking of. I enjoyed the way it was written and I did learn a bit about the history of the asian horror movies that I didn't expect to. I still say it is a interesting read if you are trying to learn and follow the asian horror scene.
