Yet anther interesting collection of reviews for the horror genre. If you haven't picked up the previous volumes, it's not a huge problem as you won't be out of your depth or out of order. The author appears to be running the reviews in the order he originally wrote them in. This also helps us see him as he grows through his craft. I'd advise you also pick up the previous volumes - I'm hoping that once he's done (will he ever be done?) that he collects all these books into one massive tome (or should that be tomb?)
This time around we get something a little different - a little extra, if you like - in that the author not only includes his reviews for Horror movies he's had published on the internet, but he also adds in a section on some of the Horror related books he's had the pleasure (or in some cases, misfortune) to give his opinion on.
The start of the book has a "Contents" section with links to the reviews in alphabetical order (ideal if you're flicking through the TV listings and want to see what Mr Powers things of that night's Horror fare. Each entry is clickable, allowing you to zoom straight to the review. My only slight moan here is that it's difficult (it could be my tired old eyes) on occasion to see where each entry is separated. I don't know if it's possible but maybe each entry could have been a different colour - maybe alternating between red and black... or some other horror inspired theme.
As I mentioned in my last review, this is a good book if you're a casual fan of the horror genre and you fancy watching something new. It's simply a case of flicking through the book and checking out Power's recommendations and then tracking the movie/s down to watch yourself.
The each with layout still remains a problem, but then there are so many different readers and font size and style options, that I'd rather have this slight issue rather than a fixed style that was hard to read.
Another enjoyable volume that will help you discover some of the smaller horror movies and books, as well as giving you Power's thought on some of the more well known ones.
This series is fast becoming an essential read for true Horror aficionados.
