Depending on your taste, not all are going to be winners, but what is indisputable is the love and knowledge poured into each essay.
In the alphabetical listings of Hidden Horror, each film essay is scribed by a different author and that author's passion and love for the genre is readily apparent. Themes and subplots I wouldn't otherwise have considered are delightful to read. I prefer to pick a film, watch it, then read what Hidden Horrors has to say, but however you like to do it, you should pick this one up.
