Very well written book on horror and it's history, Delves first into the early cinema classics such as Dracula, and Frankenstein, it also discusses the rise of the slasher genre, and the films that cropped up from this period. Was detailed in it's info, and Im sure that any horror movie fanatic will get as much out of reading this as I did.
