5.0 out of 5 stars So Good it's Scary! 31 Aug 2004
By James N Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
The cover probably does not do this sensational book justice in reaching its target audience. The cover design of this book makes it look like a program you would pick up at a travelling carnival and like the book only appeals to kids. Whilst this book is definitely very kid friendly and would be a great present for children it is also a great book of facts for adults. There are plenty of great photographs and sketches some even from classic movies. I had no idea that Mary Shelley only came up with the idea for Frankenstein because she was playing a game with a group of friends during a lightning filled stormy night where they competed against each other on who could tell the best horror story and debated if lighting could start a life, since they knew it could end it. This is just one of the many interesting facts contained within.

This sensational book is an excellent introduction to the horror world for any beginner reader as well an excellent source of horror related trivia for the serious horror fan. Topics covered include ghosts, UFOs, zombies, the undead, psychic powers, superstitions, poltergeists, Halloween, werewolves, vampires and so much more.

Other good books on these topics are - Encyclopedia Horrifica: The Terrifying TRUTH! About Vampires, Ghosts, Monsters, and More, Creepy Stuff, Ripley's Believe It or Not! Encyclopedia of the Bizarre (Ripley's Believe It or Not!) and the brilliant Informania: Vampires.
