Very Comprehensive Survey of Horror/Weird Literature, Film, TV, etc.
on November 7, 2013
Unlike her brilliant Secret Life of Puppets, which is worth five+ stars, Gothika is more of a systematic item-by-item survey of horror / fantasy / vampire / zombie books, films, TV series, etc. I can't think of any 'Gothik" (as she defines it) item she hasn't read and studied - hundreds of titles she writes intelligently about, and links together in terms of themes and influences. This book will be of great value as a reference for writers and others working in this area, but may not be of great interest to the general run of those interested in these genres as consumers.
