Grahame-Smith divides the book into section and makes his way through virtually every genre and sub genre of the horror movie scene. Describing in detail how not to become just another dismembered body in your favorite movie. What is truly unique is how the author seems to pull you into the movies so you really feel like your suddenly a part of the movies we all loved watching growing up, but then you remember the survival statistics for the characters of this movie and suddenly you are desperate to gobble up all the info to stay alive.
Seriously though if you love all things scary and don't just wait for Halloween to roll around once a year to break out the mayhem and frights this book is for you. I laughed my butt off non stop and was sad when I had finished the book. I will definitely be looking into a few other books this author has written.
On the whole I found this book to be quite entertaining and rather funny in many parts. Basically it's a run-down of all the horror movie clichés and how to avoid them. Moreover, it gives you practical tips on how to survive if you find yourself embroiled in a typical horror movie...
The book comes with a foreword by Wes Craven, a healthy dose of humor, is well-illustrated and generally pretty slick. Some sections are definitely funnier than others, so it's a little uneven in that regard. But, I figure you need to have a few less-funny moments in order to truly appreciate the gut-busting riffs when you run across them.
If you like horror, and a little comedy, I'd definitely recommend giving this book a try. Good coffee-table or bathroom reading, if nothing else.
Not to be confused with the similarly titled Horror Movie Survival Guide.
I have a very big sense of humor spanding from very shallow and cheap sense to the deep thinkers. And this book lands right in the middle. Even if you're not a horror movie fanatic, this is still a fun book!
