    This book was insightful and a refreshing way to look at Horror Films. I enjoyed the author's opinions on many of the films he discussed, even the ones I didn't agree with. Excellent book, would recommend.

    I really enjoyed this. Gave me a lot of good suggestions to watch, and I enjoyed the explanations and insights into the various genres. Noticed a few misspellings and minor errors but nothing that heavily disrupted the read. Would definitely recommend for horror film buffs.

    This author writes some very detailed and thought-provoking reviews of many different Horror films. He's really good but I don't care for the way the book is organized. The topics covered in each chapter seem haphazardly chosen and most of the films mentioned are pretty well known. I guess it's an FAQ so if the material covered were obscure it would have to be an "IAQ" (Infrequently Asked Questions).
