Nightmare Movies: Critical History of the Horror Film, 1968-88 [Hardcover]

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

1 Dec 1988
In 1968, George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" and Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby" brought a new slant to the horror film, bringing zombies and witchcraft into a contemporary setting, and much closer to home than the cardboard Transylvanias of earlier films. This work is a critical overview of the horror movie genre from the late 1960s with a discussion of over 2000 films - masterpiece and monstrosity alike. Kim Newman is a film critic and broadcaster and contributes to BBC Radio 4's "Kaleidoscope" and BBC TV's "Cover to Cover".

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply the best survey of the modern genre... 13 April 2007
...but I wish Newman would revisit it. Bookending the modern genre with Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Day of the Dead (1985) worked twenty years ago, but a lot has happened since then.

How about it, Kim?
