Also, I know any book of lists are subjective but they did name the list, "Taschen's Top 50 Horror Movies." So, the original Universal Frankenstein doesn't make the list but Andy Wharhol's Flesh For Frankenstein does? Not a single movie from Hammer could get on the list but Delicatessen made it? See what I mean? Also, some factual errors on the movie bios (I never knew Quint was a Vietnam vet, what with that whole story about delivering the bomb in WWII. And the opening sequence in Dawn of the Dead takes place in ...Puerto Rico?). Most of the pictures are dull shots culled from the movies and not very interesting. On the list of top 50 movies, each entry is preceded by the original movie poster which was one of the only visually interesting parts of the book really. One bright spot but kind of weird. The movie bio for Suspiria. This selection has a brief movie synopsis and is filled with behind the scenes info about the making of the movie, the director, cinematographer and more. It was really quite well done and leaves me wondering why every other entry didn't follow this format. It would have required a lot more research but would have resulted in a much better book. Anyway, that's my two cents worth of review. Hope it Helps. Maybe saves the true Horror buffs a few wasted bucks.
