4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Guide for the Casual Fan 21 Oct 2012
By Michelle Moore TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I've just read the reviews on the US site, and there seems to be some annoyance about the films included. I came to this book as a casual fan of horror films, and the selection of films didn't seem a big deal to me, I simply enjoyed it for what it was.

In his introduction, Peter Normanton clearly states that this is not a comprehensive list, despite having over 250 films listed. By the end of his research, he had over 1000, so he's tried to come up with a good selection. One thing I did notice is that sequels don't get their own entries, but are simply mentioned under the original film. I'm sure a whole book could be written about horror movie sequels, but don't expect to find them here.

The films included are in alphabetical order, with basic info, a synopsis of the story, and some background information, such as whether they were banned, or notes on filming. They're also given a 'splatter rating'. It seems important to point out that these are 'slasher and splatter' movies, which means a lot of zombie type films are included.

There are a few little extras, such as an overview of the genre, information on some of the directors, and a list of 'video nasties' which were banned.

I enjoyed looking up the films I've watched in the past, as well as finding some I'd like to try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable book. 20 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have plenty of books that cover the same ground but for the price and size this one is a winner.
The reviews are enjoyable and well written and whilst it's not the most comprehensive of reference books (something the author admits to in his introduction) it's still a fine effort.
Great for dipping into or just reminding you of what great films are out there if you are stuck for something to watch in the evening.
Recommended.
