A very useful guide to the Mills Creek public domain collection of "50 Horror Classics." In answer to the author's question in his afterword of who determined these were classics, clearly the answering is the marketing department. They are a very mixed bag of a few good movies with a lot of dreck. But it's a cheap collection and you don't have to watch what you don't want to watch and, thanks to Moore, you can decide if some of those you by-passed might deserve a second consideration (usually not, but I did find one or two I might look at).

First, let me confess right up front that I didn't make it all the way through this book. In fact, I admit that--considering this book claims to be a collection of reviews of "50 Horror Classics"--making it through just the first 4 or 5 "reviews" might not qualify me as an expert on this book. However, because I purchased it based on the single 4-star rating I'd seen prior to my purchase-decision, I felt that I should waste no time in providing the other side of the story. In the simplest terms: this book is awful.

Now, if you'll indulge me...

The book purports to offer chapter-by-chapter reviews of of a DVD collection called "Horror Classics", a 50-movie vintage horror collection (which I happen to own). Some of the films in the collection are among the true classics of the horror genre indeed: "Phantom of the Opera", "Nosferatu", "Night of the Living Dead", "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", and others. Some are campy guilty pleasures: "The Bat", "Little Shop of Horrors", etc. And, well, some are just old, bad movies.

What they all have in common, though--and they reason that they are part of this collection--is that all the films are in the public domain, so the DVD publisher and marketer can bundle them up and sell them dirt-cheap. Unfortunately, this book's author doesn't seem to know this. As a result, in chapter after chapter, the poor reader is bombarded with uninformed speculation of how this bad movie or that bad performance could possibly be considered a "classic". How can "Black Dragons", the author muses, possibly be considered a "horror classic"...what was the publisher thinking? "Nightmare Castle" a classic?

I had high hopes for this book but I guess I should have read the description more carefully. All 50 movies were part of a compilation boxset and, quite predictively, there were some stinkers. Easy read but not essential

If you love horror movie reviews I highly recommend picking this book up. Mr. Moore is very funny and he gives a great overview of all the movies included in this novel. Keep up the great work.
