Don't, whatever you do, read this before watching the film.
As can be expected, it reveals everything that can be revealed about the Michael Reeves classic.
The author certainly knows his stuff and, most of the time, writes in a clear, concise way.
It explores those behind the film, the actors, its influence and influences.
However, for me, it doesn't spend long enough exploring the history of the real witchfinders. It also, inevitably, falls into the trap of reading like a university thesis on occassion.
Also, in the films it influenced piece there is a glaring omission in that it fails to mention Christopher Lee's Bloody Judge.
All that said, it is an enjoyable and enlightening book, that doesn't patronise the reader or persume they are film experts.
If you're a huge fan of the film then this book is a must-have, casual readers should give it a miss.

A fascinating, in-depth study of the 1968 cult British Horror film. This book examines the participants, structure, impact and enduring legacy of Michael Reeves' classic chiller. Ian Cooper writes with passion, wit and a clear understanding of his subject matter. Highly recommended.
