More About the Author

I am a native of Nashville, Tennessee, and a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, where I earned 3 degrees over the course of 22 years. Currently I teach English and film courses in the Humanities Department of Dalton State College in Georgia. While horror films, literature, and culture are my most notable interests, I am also an expert in Tennessee history, the Civil War, and 19th Century Southern history. My interest in movies and TV in general, classic rock, and comic books is very great as well, and I hope to do more publishing/presenting in these areas as time and circumstances permit. Any questions? Feel free to contact me here, at Dalton State, or on Facebook. Thanks for taking the time to read my bio!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Vincent Price is my all-time favorite horror film star. As a child I saw virtually every film he starred in. As a result of this, I enjoy reading any book or article I come across on him.
When I ordered this book I assumed it was some sort of biography of the wonderful actresses that appeared with him such as Hazel Court, Barbara Steele, Diana Rigg, Caroline Munro, etc. I was wrong. This book is a scholarly tome on the role gender played in each of his horror films, especially the gothic-horror Edgar Allan Poe films he made for Roger Corman (my favorite horror films.) But the Poe films are not the only ones discussed. Among those discussed in detail include The Fly, the William Castle films (House on Haunted Hill and The Tingler,) The Last Man on Earth, the non-Corman Poe films (especially The Conqueror Worm,) Scream and Scream Again, Phibes, Theatre of Blood, etc.
The book starts a little slow but picks up (for me at least,) when it gets into the Price horror films beginning after House of Wax. As stated, I particularly love the Poe films, (Pit and the Pendulum is my favorite horror film) so I particularly enjoyed that chapter. There are some black and white photographs, but not much.
Like many McFarland books, the book is fairly expensive. However if you are a Vincent Price fan, I have no doubt that you will enjoy reading it.

Format: Paperback
This book presents an exceptionally well-shaped insight into its subject. Its analysis is as instructive as the author's prose style is delightful. Indeed, it satisfies Samuel Johnson's principal criterion for the written word that it "instruct delightfully." I recommend this instructively entertaining work to anybody who has an interest in the horror film or in film as literature. Clearly, the author is an authority on both.
