About the Author
Brian W. Collins was born and raised in Massachusetts. He moved to Los Angeles in 2005 and shortly thereafter began writing for various horror outlets as well as running his own site, Horror Movie A Day. A frequent guest on horror-themed podcasts, Collins has appeared in several documentaries and television specials focused on the genre, and often hosts repertory screenings of classic (and not-so-classic) horror films in the Los Angeles area. He lives with his family in the San Fernando Valley.

So, one dives into this book with the proper expectation that it's NOT a "365 Horror Movies to See Before You Die!" kind of thing. We don't need yet another writer telling us how great Texas Chainsaw Massacre is. But horror nuts who find themselves beginning to scrape the bottom of the barrel can use this as a reference map to going a level (or a few) deeper.
But it's not ONLY obscure, impenetrable curiosities within. As you flip through, you're bound to see several titles you recognize, which is nice. The write ups on each film are chock full of comparisons and references to OTHER films, some covered in the book, some not. Taking all that into account, Horror Movie a Day is like a lifetime's worth of homework (in a good way) for any serious horror fan. Buy it. Enjoy.
As a long time film and horror fan, I admit that I haven't watched all of these films, which is not particular helpful in a review except to say I have watched about 15,000 films and still have not seen all the ones in the book. My experience with watching that many films is I tend to wind up jaded so Collins makes me want to watch more films to experience the agony and ecstasy he went through (or Meh for some of them) when watching them. It's a great film writer that can make me want to watch another movie in a genre, any genre not just horror, that I feel supersaturated in.
As a horror movie fan, the expansive collection of movies, and the clever sorting of genre, quality, and style into the framework of a year is worth the (impressively small!) price of admission alone.When you add in such a wide selection of filmic eras, perspective via revisitation, and even availability, you've easily earned all five stars.
