well researched and entertaining, this book reads as if the author cut a two paragraphs from the Wikipedia article of every major horror movie and only briefly touched on any of them. as an overview not bad and still entertaining but again just brief tidbits of information that most horror fans already know just on the reputation of the movies and their creators

I am a "scary movie" fan and I was looking forward to a book that explained many of the thematic underpinnings of horror movies and the evolution of those themes from the very early horror through the modern horror movie. What I got was a list of ever horror movie ever made and a short synopsis of each. It was incredibly boring. At first I thought that perhaps the author wanted to give appropriate background on all the films before getting into the heart of the subject matter. But no, there was no scholarly analysis of the subject matter at all.
