I bought a book for myself and another as a gift for a friend who loves the genre as much as I do and the reviews are the same: we both love it.
Landis shows his passion for the horror films, classic and new. Leave it out on the coffee table or wherever guests sit and you will see them looking through it and commenting on what films they saw, and the memories it brings them. Also you will hear 'oh wow I'd like to see THAT movie' as they catch a glimpse of a creature and read about the film.
Great book, sure to be considered one of the classics about horror films.
The monster movies are grouped into broad categories throughout the book. They are: Vampires, Werewolves, Mad Scientists, Zombies, Ghosts, Mummies, Myths/Legends/Fairy Tales, Dragons/Dinosaurs, Monstrous Apes, Nature's Revenge, Atomic Mutations, The Devil's Work, Space Monsters, Monstrous Machines, Human Monsters, and The Monster Makers. At the beginning of each section, Landis would provide a two page overview about the subject or topic. His writings are clear, succinct, and knowledgeable, with the right touch of humor.
This is a book that any fans of Dark Fantasy movies will want to obtain and read (and re-read) during any "dark and gloomy nights."
