Editorial Reviews

Review

Anatomy of Fear is essential reading for every horror movie buff. It has the inside scoop from the brainy auteurs behind the best cult flicks from the last forty years. Most importantly it asks,What are we afraid of, and why? --Sarah Langan, three-time Bram Stoker Award-winning horror novelist

A fascinating and compelling look at the creative process of the filmmakers who are pioneering the horror genre into new and uncharted territory. --Wade Major, Film Critic KPCC-FM (NPR) and producer/host, IGN DigiGods

Far from presenting a dry and academic study of horror cinema,The Anatomy of Fearinstead comes across like an ongoing conversation with all the horror and thriller writers and directors you would most love to meet. It is fascinating to read the back-and-forth, to follow the journey of thought between interviewers and interviewees both, to watch as ideas are explored and teased out (often revealing, in the process, the true inspirations for certain movies, as well as alternate scenes that were never filmed, or different directions that classic films could have gone), to see the filmmakers pause and linger on some aspect of terror they might never before have noticed, even in their own work. The breadth of this collection of interviews, too, is impressive, certain to satisfy fans of Alien and Killer Klowns From Outer Space alike, Fright Night and Stakeland, The Blair Witch Project and the Explorers, Hitchcock and Craven, Robert Englund and Bela Lugosi...Most important, this is a book that will make you feel part of the conversation, that will beg you to participate and ask your own questions. --Nathan Holic, author ofThe Things I Don't See (Main Street Rag Publishing)

About the Author

Chris Vander Kaay & Kathleen Fernandez-Vander Kaay are a husband and wife writing team who agree on almost everything except whether or not 28 Days Later should be considered a zombie movie. They’ve written television pilots and award-winning short films, and their first feature film premiered on cable television in 2014. Though their career has been focused primarily on nonfiction work with the Deseret News and the website Bloody Good Horror, they have also been recognized for their fiction and poetry. After years devoted to interviews, podcasts, and articles in which they championed the idea that the horror film genre should be taken seriously, they hope the idea is finally catching on. You can follow them at their blog, inthemargin.net.
